Democrats present award to Barkan
A local political activist has been honored for her work by the Washington state Democratic Party.
Lenore Barkan was presented with the Warren Magnuson award for "female volunteer of the year" at the party’s annual awards banquet this week in Seattle, said Bill McCaw, 16th Legislative District Democratic Party state committeeman.
Barkan was praised for serving in the dual roles of vice chairwoman for the Walla Walla County Democrats and as treasurer for the 16th District Democratic Party, McCaw said.
The citation with the award read, "wearing two hats, she juggles a multitude of tasks while doing them all well," McCaw said.
