Barry Cave on Rick Larsen’s Friday Harbor Visit 3/26/2017

posted in: Guest | 0

Editors Note: Barry Cave is among the friendliest people you will ever meet; cheerful, and colorful. Barry is one of those people who would cheerfully give the shirt off his back to anybody in need no matter their creed. We all know liberals with no sense of humor determined to believe the worst about anything that is said, so I want to point out that the “gun” is not aimed at anyone. I don’t want to see any paranoid letters to the editor in the paper over this.  Representative Rick Larsen recently visited Friday Harbor on 3/26/2017, in this guest… Click Here to Read More

Greetings Conservatives!  As some of you may know from our Central Committee meetings, one of our goals this term is to publish more original work by conservatives in our county. For one thing, if you have no idea what the “Central Committee” is, you will find answers. Even long term conservatives often are unsure of what a PCO is, or who the members of the Executive Board are, and any number of similar questions. Many of these questions are answered.

Sample: SJC Council (Mar 20, 21) Solid Waste Advisory committee (Mar 23), Building Advisory council mtg (Mar 23), Veterans Advisory board meeting (Mar 31), etc. Seattle flounders in dealing with its housing crisis with a number of measures that only discourage investment in housing: here and here. (Seattle Times). Locally in SJC we are struggling… Click Here to Read More

In my email to the Republican Party last week I listed a number of news articles of interest. Many of them I received from others, some I curated myself. I am reposting them here for convenience:  Opponents are needed for a Lopez Hospital District ballot measure. I know nothing about this subject. If there are conservatives who have concerns let me know, and I will try to put you in touch with each other. Of course, you do NOT need my permission to write something.  On Lopez, the Land bank is making a purchase. Islands’ Weekly reports.  Over the last… Click Here to Read More

This week we are announcing to our membership via email and post that we will be holding our 2017 Lincoln Day Event, featuring Herb Meyer. Full details are on our website already. We will be holding events on Orcas, Lopez, and San Juan Island.
