A Letter to the Democratic Party

Charles Rehn
Olympia, Wa.

February 21, 2003

Dear Democratic National Committee;

I am writing today to informally advise you of my intent to fully engage in a campaign for the Democratic Presidential Nomination and the Presidency in 2004.

You may or may not have heard of me – I know of several DNC/Democratic individuals who are – but, I have not been allowed “in the club” so to speak. And, I suppose I can understand that.  However, I have made several attempts to be in touch with the DNC since last November by phone, and have had no success in reaching anyone, or receiving the courtesy of a call back.

The reason I decided to write this today is in response to the “Video” of the candidates… and just wanted to let you know, for the record, that I am out here, I’m campaigning, and I intend to win.

For more info, you can view my web site, being constructed, at .  In addition, you can view a web site I have been operating since April 2002, in my efforts to bolster support for Democrats in the November elections, as well as to urge action by Democrats in Congress on key issues of importance, and in disagreement, on key issues.  In 4 months, I estimate I impacted 600,000 to 1,000,000 people. See also the beginnings of the Global Democratic Citizens Union at

I am currently campaigning as a Democrat in the Pacific Northwest, and expect my campaign to become nationally recognized in May 2003.

I am not a typical candidate, nor do I have a typical approach to issues.  But, I can assure you that I am fully in touch with the people and the underlying issues which motivate them.

I  am certain that, before long, my campaign will be recognized as the effort of one more of us “regular people” who are no longer willing to stand by while our “leaders” fail to represent our interests (just as my inquiries have been ignored).

I hope you can respect that position, understand my frustration, as well as keep me on your radar.  I fully intend to make a difference in the coming election cycle, and trust that the day will come when we will engage in useful communications.
