Democrats in the 5th Legislative District elected Maple Valley resident Jim Baum as chairman Jan. 19.

The district stretches from Issaquah to Snoqualmie Pass, and from Sammamish to Maple Valley. The organization represents the Democratic Party in the 5th District.

“I think we have turned an important corner in politics,” Baum said in a statement. “Conservative right-wing candidates like Sarah Palin have crested. It’s all downhill from here for Republicans.”

The biennial reorganization also shuffled other leadership positions.

The leadership team includes Sammamish resident Robyn Scola as first vice chairwoman, Sammamish resident Dorothy Willard as second vice chairwoman, Issaquah resident Jennifer Sutton as state committeewoman, and Maple Valley resident Mike Barer as state committeeman.

Sutton just completed a two-year term as chairwoman.

Members also elected Di Irons as secretary; Gloria Hatcher-Mays as treasurer; August Luniuck Rakita and David Spring as delegates to King County Democratic Central Committee; and Sadie Maloney and Konrad Roeder as alternate delegates. The group also elected Snoqualmie resident Scott Williams to the new role of communications director.
