This was a unique year for the Washington State Legislature as both Republicans and Democrats battled for an astonishing 27 open seats (19 House, 8 Senate).
Democrats held a 27-22 advantage over Republicans in the Senate heading into Election Day. As of Thursday afternoon, the only Senate race yet to be determined was in Southwest Washington’s 17th Legislative District. Tim Probst (D-Vancouver) is hanging on to a narrow lead over incumbent Don Benton (R-Vancouver). If Probst, who previously served in the House of Representatives, can hang on to his 100 vote lead, Democrats will preserve their 27 seats in the Senate.
New this year! The Pacific Northwest Dental Conference (PNDC) will have a Virtual Graffiti Wall sponsored by Phillips Sonicare. The Graffiti Wall is an 8’ x 15’ video wall (watch it here!) that allows attendees to take giant-sized photo of themselves, then use virtual spray paint to draw on their own photos, create custom backgrounds, or make giant works of art. Their creations are printed instantly and given to participants. Phillips Sonicare has sponsored the photo booth in the past, and is excited to bring this exciting, new activity to the PNDC. Looks like fun — the Graffiti Wall will be in the lobby of the Meydenbauer Center during the conference, come check it out!
