Okanogan Democrats Executive Board
KATIE HAVEN - CHAIR
I live on a small sheep ranch in the lower Methow Valley. I grew up discussing politics around the dinner table, and accompanied my parents to the voting booth as soon as I could walk. My goal in this position is to help citizens stay aware of opportunities to participate in working towards a "more perfect Union". While national politics get the headlines and the glamour, I have learned that it all starts with friends and neighbors getting together to talk about issues. I aim to make it interesting and fun!
NANCY AADLAND, SECRETARY
I was born and raised in Washington State, had a career that took me all over the country, and retired early to live and travel on a sailboat for several years before moving to the Methow Valley in 2018. A graduate of Western Washington University with degrees in accounting and business administration, I was a Certified Public Accountant and an adjunct college instructor. After earning my Airline Transport Pilot and Flight Instructor ratings, I changed careers and eventually went to work for the Federal Aviation Administration where I retired as Manager of the Air Transportation Oversight Office in Washington DC. Prior to the 2020 election, I thought that I'd fulfilled my civic duty simply by voting in each election. I now feel an obligation to do everything within my power to help preserve our democracy.
