“Seattle @MayorJenny plans to sign a new city budget that will reduce the police budget by 18% despite homicides reaching record highs not seen in a decade.”
Don’t forget to let @GovInslee know what you think about his latest executive order!
These policies are dangerous, plain and simple.
Defunding the police
Not prosecuting crimes
Closing jails with no plan
… and now not holding criminals accountable for their actions.
Actions need to be taken, but this is the wrong direction.
Do you think @GovInslee should call for a special session?
“From the beginning of the pandemic in March, @GovInslee and his staff have decided upon the best course of action for the state. In the process, they have left 147 elected legislators on the sidelines.”
Happy Thanksgiving! We hope each and every one of you have a blessed day today surrounded by family and loved ones. #Thankful #Thanksgiving2020
State newspapers agree: Refusal to call special session is a big mistake. If Inslee won’t do it, the Legislature should call itself back, but we can’t do it alone. Our Senators are ready to vote now to get us back in session. #waleg #ListenToThePeople
I have been asking @GovInslee and @WADeptHealth why WA has a 25% cap on grocery stores (OR has 75%) and what the science is to justify. I think they’re done with me.
“We’ve done our best to address your question with the information we have … We have nothing further to add.”
