Inslee plans Vancouver kickoff event

Gubernatorial candidate to appear Tuesday



U.S. Rep. Jay Inslee, a Bainbridge Island Democrat who announced his candidacy for governor Monday in Seattle, will hold a rally at 11:45 a.m. Tuesday at Christensen Shipyard in Vancouver, according to Clark County Democratic Chair Kathy Lawrence.

Vancouver will be one of several stops on Inslee’s schedule as he kicks off his campaign with appearances around the state. He was the keynote speaker at the Clark County Democrats’ Jefferson-Jackson Dinner on June 11.

The shipyard is at 4400 S.E. Columbia Way, south of Highway 14.
