Our District Captains

In additon to all our volunteers, there's a smaller group who are District Captains. We meet regularly during campaign season to help coordinate activities, keep up with social media, and send weekly updates to the rest of our volunteers. Don't hesitate to contact your SDP Puget Sound District Captains if you have any questions or would like to become a District Captain!

Bridget Burns, a founding member of Sister District Puget Sound, was born, raised, and still lives in South Seattle. When not working to flip state legislative races BLUE across the country, she is working in early childhood education by day, walking Seward Park by early morning and spending time with friends and family by evening.

Roz Ray is a writer and carpenter, born and raised in the Seattle area. While she's always been politically active, she never thought she would get into organizing, but here it is three years later, and she's still huffing and puffing about state legislative races in between fixing houses, writing weird stories, and watching re-runs of The Great British Baking Show.

Jilda Nettleton, born near Syracuse, NY,  has been living on the west coast since 1990. She started out with Sister District while living in Pacifica, CA  with the CA Peninsula chapter and is now happy to be volunteering with the Puget Sound chapter since 2018. She writes the newsletters and works on postcard parties. Jilda is also involved with North Seattle Progressives, Wallingford Indvisible, League of Women Voters, Snohomish County as well as trying to find time to be a breast cancer advocate. When she's not busy "destroying the country with her leftist propaganda"; Jilda is either A) driving her children somewhere while listening to podcasts, B) staring at the fridge trying to decide what's for dinner, or C) attending to the demands of 4 cats. 

Barb Elliott lives near the Zoo and runs our welcome wagon. When she’s not gardening (with a special love of BLUE flowers) she enjoys playing old-time music (it’s better than it sounds), and watching her husband cook lovely dinners.
