Chair Podlodowski’s Statement on Inauguration

For Immediate Release | January 20, 2021

SEATTLE — Following the inauguration of President Joseph R. Biden, Jr. and Vice President Kamala Harris, Washington State Democratic Party Chair Tina Podlodowski released the following statement:

“After four long years, the American people can finally have faith that our President will put their interests above his own and honor his sacred oath to defend our Constitution. And after enduring relentless assaults on their basic humanity, women, people of color, and immigrants can see in Vice President Harris’ historic inauguration the triumph of the promise of America. 

Washington Democrats have tirelessly organized since the day former President Trump took office to make this day possible. This historic day belongs to everyone who knocked on their neighbor’s door to remind them of the undeniable truth that democracy will always win the day — as long as we stay in this battle for the soul of our nation.”
