Washington’s 14th Legislative District Democrats
We support a better democracy for our communities, state, and country.
We are proud of the leaders in the 14th LD. There were lots of reasons to recognize what Lorrie DeKay has done for Klickitat County and Washington State Democrats. She seems to thrive on working for our benefit.

Yoram Bauman, “the world’s first and only stand-up economist”, performs regularly at colleges, companies, and comedy clubs, and has shared the stage with everyone from Robin Williams to Paul Krugman. He has appeared in TIME Magazine and on PBS and NPR, and is the co-author of the two-volume Cartoon Introduction to Economics, which is now available in Chinese, German, Italian, etc. Speaking of foreign languages, he is also the organizer of the humor session at the annual meeting of the American Economic Association.
Yoram lives in Seattle, where he founded Non-Profit Comedy, a series of benefit shows that raised almost $100,000 for local non-profits. He has a BA in mathematics from Reed College, a PhD in economics from the University of Washington, and spends his non-comedy hours campaigning for environmental tax reform. In 2011 he spent 5 months in Beijing as a visiting scholar at the University of International Business and Economics.
