Many thanks for those who took part in TWO AWESOME community activist events! Last Friday, we had 60 people turn out for rally at the post office to protest the treatment of immigrants by the Trump Administration. It was powerful and moving to be a part of more than 750 "Lights for Liberty" groups nationwide. And lat night, we saw democracy in action at a public hearing with the Wasco County Commission. More than 100 people showed up to listen and to speak to our commissioners about our concerns over their proposed "Resolution Supporting Second Amendment Rights." It was a respectful hearing from both sides, and I think we all learned some things by listening. The commissioners intend to consider the issue further, but they all indicated they could not support the Resolution in its current form. I call that a victory for common sense and the rule of law.

Mark your calendars....State Rep Daniel Bonham and State Senator Cliff Bentz have just announced they will be holding a town hall in The Dalles on Tuesday July 30 at 6 pm at the Readiness Center. We have some serious bones to pick with both of these gentlemen.

There's much more work to be done, locally and nationally, so I hope to see you all at our meeting next Tuesday.

Theme by Danetsoft and Danang Probo Sayekti inspired by Maksimer
