Dear San Juan County Friends and Neighbors,Planning Commission Meeting this Friday

CSA will host coffee and goodies, Friday morning at 7:30 AM, in the Grange Hall at 152 North First Street (next to the American Legion) in Friday Harbor for CSA neighbors and friends from all islands to gather prior to the Planning Commission (PC) meeting. We plan to depart for the Council Chambers at 55 Second Street in time to attend the 8:45 AM meeting, where PC deliberations will continue on the Wetland Section of the CAO. The Grange Hall will be open again at either the conclusion of the PC deliberations or over the lunch hour (whichever occurs first) for a question and answer period.

Please make every attempt to make this meeting! Our turnout for the March 6 meeting was worthy of attention, but it appears that our comments have been glossed over or ignored by the PC in their deliberations. We believe it is important for us all to be seen and heard from again. After Friday’s meeting, there will not be an opportunity for any more public comments until the County Council opens the Wetland Section for discussion.

Please make a note that the date of the Council’s first discussion of the Wetland Section has been tentatively set for 1:00 PM, Monday, April 16. The date for the Council’s public hearing has not yet been set.  We will keep you posted of the date as it becomes available.

CSA members have discovered the Trojan Heron blog. Have you? Continued

Congreesional Candidate Dan Matthews speaks at County Convention

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.

Dan Matthews for CongressWhat 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
