Elephant Update: February
Reps. Gina Mosbrucker and Chris Corry schedule a 14th District Virtual Town Hall Meeting, Feb. 25 Reps. Gina Mosbrucker and Chris Corry are inviting citizens from the 14th District to join them for a one-hour Virtual Town Hall Meeting, Thursday, Feb. 25 at 6 p.m. to discuss issues related to the 2021 legislative session. “We are now approaching the time of the session where we will be voting on hundreds of bills that have passed their respective committees and are coming out on the House floor. Since most of the legislative session is being held remotely, we don’t have the level of personal interaction that a normal session would provide. So it’s even more important for us to hear from everyone across the 14th District and listen to their concerns and ideas,” said Mosbrucker, R-Goldendale. “This is a convenient way for people to participate in their government from the comfort of their homes.””Town halls are a great way to cut through the rhetoric and talk about what’s really important. Several controversial bills are being debated and decided in Olympia this session. These proposals will be discussed in detail during our first ever virtual town hall event,” said Corry, R-Yakima. “I’m looking forward to a lively discussion that is both engaging and informative for the people we represent.”The remote Town Hall Meeting will be conducted using the Zoom platform. Those who would like to participate must pre-register in advance for the conference by going to https://tinyurl.com/eiv6jinc. Citizens may also sign up at www.RepresentativeGinaMosbrucker.com or www.RepresentativeChrisCorry.com. **The conference can only accommodate the first 500 attendees, so participants should register early.**
Once a month, we like to publish an excerpt from the Klickitat County Republicans Platform, our values and guiding principles. This month we are featuring:
DEFEND AND SUPPORT THE CONSTITUTION AND BILL OF RIGHTS
The Constitution of the United States is the ultimate law for both organizing and restraining all government.
We believe the Constitution should be interpreted according to the original intent of the Framers.
We exert the right and claim responsibility to resist any law which clearly violates our Constitutional Rights.
Emphasizing the importance of the 1st and 2nd Amendments
The right to bear arms-Shall not be infringed or impaired. Repeal I-1639
The right to freedom of speech
Preserving and protecting Freedom of Religion
Eliminate Federal usurping of state’s rights
Ensure sovereignty of state law enforcement
Ensuring private property rights/values shall not be diminished by any government action without compensation.
Support the Electoral College
Shane Cagle, is currently serving as the KCRP Treasurer. He also volunteers for a number is other things since he is retired. Favorite quote: “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” -John Adams
Grant Cheney serves as the KCR Secretary and is a steadfast supporter of the United States Constitution and the inalienable rights that it recognizes. White Salmon is where he currently resides as well as where he grew up and attended school. When not working, he entertains himself with books, real news, and trying to improve his cooking. Other interests include learning guitar, amateur radio, and shopping at his favorite store, Costco. The chocolate covered almonds you can find there are quite addictive.
The fence is down, the locks are gone! I took a victory lap down the slide on Thursday morning on behalf of everyone that called or emailed the Bingen City Council. Thank you! But as much fun as the slide was, my favorite part was a mom and her toddler. The toddler was squealing and running around the playsets; beautiful sound of freedom! Thank you to everyone, including the Bingen City Council, who supported opening Daubenspeck Park.
For a quick, easy, motivational, and thought-provoking read while waiting for the snow to melt, I recommend Terrence Williams book “From the Foster House to the White House.” When I heard that he was censored by the cancel culture, I ordered an autographed copy immediately. Terrence gives a first-hand account of the turmoil children face as they navigate life with absent and addicted parents. His life lessons are invaluable as he describes the neglect, starvation, and abuse that he overcame.
Terrence K. Williams is born actor and comedian, with a passion to perform. Terrence is also one of the hottest viral internet sensations, with an online following nearly a million strong.
“Terrence was born and raised in Oklahoma City, where he spent the first 15 years of his life growing up as a child of the system, in and out of unstable foster-care homes.” After a long day at work, Terrence decided to push the “public” button on his videos, and the next day his normal 2 views turned into over 42 million. Mr. Williams has since dedicated his platform and comedic career to improving the lives of underprivileged children everywhere…”
