Had a great County Convention to with close to 80 Republicans at the Friday Harbor Grange. Delegates were elected to the attend the State Convention in Tacoma and we also approved the 2012-2013 SJCRP Platform.
What an honor to meet and hear 2nd Congressional Candidate Dan Matthews speak. Dan is the Real Deal having served our country in Iraq and Vietnam. Was an airline pilot when 911 occurred and knows his opposition Congressman Rick Larson well. “Rick Larson is just a rubber stamp for President Obama and Nancy Pelosi,” said Matthews. “It is time to put aside partisan politics and do what is right for this country.” Dan sounds like a no nonsense lets get the job done kinda guy to me. I almost ran him over setting up tables for the event. He apologized and stepped out f the way. I told him I appreciate a potential Congressman who knows when to get out of the way. His wife thought that was hilarious. I like him! – Rick Boucher

Subject: Alert – National Conservation Area/National Monument
Hello All,At today’s County Council meeting, it was revealed through public comments that several Lopezians, including Jamie Stephens, went to DC to lobby Capitol Hill about designating the BLM lands a National Conservation Area. Nevertheless, they were essentially told that Congress will not pass it. so their strategy now is to get the County Council to endorse a Presidential declaration (Executive Order) making it a National Monument.Several people at the Council meeting spoke in favor of it. They asked for a show of hands, and those in favor outnumbered those against by 2 to 1. In other words, about 2/3 of the attendees today supported it, and only one-third opposed.In short, the Council is hearing that people here want this. DC is hearing that people want this. If you don’t want it, you better start crowing about it.~ Thanks, Ed K.
