EVERETT – Democratic presidential candidate Al Gore will visit Everett Monday morning to rally supporters and discuss issues that affect working families, his campaign announced Thursday.
“This is a significant event for Snohomish County, and I’m very excited,” County Executive Bob Drewel said. “It’s a trip that is timely, and it’s a further indication of how much he cares about this state.”
It will be the vice president’s first visit to the county this year.
Gore will appear at Paine Field, in Hangar C-84, near the main terminal. The doors will open at 10 a.m., and the program will begin at 10:30 a.m.
Tickets are free, but are required. They can be picked up through the weekend from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Democratic headquarters in Everett, 2512 Colby Ave. Call 425-303-0478 for more information.
“We’re printing thousands of tickets, and we’re going to give him a warm welcome,” Drewel said.

Gov. George W. Bush of Texas, the GOP presidential candidate for the Nov. 7 general election, has made three trips to Snohomish County during the recent campaign, one to Monroe and two to Everett.
Gore has visited Seattle several times this year, but his last local visit was nearly a year ago when he made a campaign stop in November at a Bothell senior center.
His wife, Tipper Gore, also visited the county for the first time this year for a brief rally at Everett Community College last month.
