All political power is inherent in the people, and governments derive their just powers from the consent of the governed, and are established to protect and maintain individual rights.

Halftime at the legislature


It’s halftime in the 2015 legislative session, and now Legislators are retreating to their districts to hold constituent (that’s you) town halls. Here are the dates and times for the town halls.

This is your opportunity to hear what important issues Legislators are working on, and for you to ask them questions.

If you are short on questions, here are a few we think would be great to ask:
  1. Do you support right-to-work legislation in Washington?
  2. What are you doing to make sure that labor unions are transparent and accountable to the public employees they represent?
  3. Do you support transparent collective bargaining negotiations?
  4. What are you doing to protect the interests of taxpayers in public-sector collective bargaining?
  5. Will you support legislation that gives state workers the choice whether they want to join an employees union or not? 
It’s up to each of us to hold our Legislators accountable, and until we remove the stranglehold public-sector unions have on our government, no idea which limits the growth of government will survive.

Thank you for all you do.

Effing the ineffable - Washington State elections sometimes have been rigged.
