I have lots of great news to share.

1) The signature drives for Jim Walsh’s 6 initiatives in the homestretch.

 

Dec 29th is the deadline for turning in signatures for Jim’s 6 common sense initiatives.

 

Last month, his first initiative turned in a record number of signatures (Initiative 2117 — STOP THE HIDDEN GAS TAX which repeals Inslee’s dishonest cap-and-trade scheme). Because of his hard work and your hard work, that initiative will appear on the Nov 2024 ballot (nonetheless, they want everyone to keep collecting signatures for it — the more the better).

 

This Tuesday at 1:30pm, he’s turning in signatures for the 2nd initiative to qualify — it’s the initiative that requires the government to keep parents and guardians informed about their kids’ health while they’re in school (I-2081 on PARENTAL NOTIFICATION).

 

 

He may also be turning in signatures for a 3rd initiative later next week (they’re on the verge of making it).

 

If you already have petitions for any of the 6 initiatives, fill ’em up and mail ’em in (the address to send ’em to appears on the back of the petitions). The campaign wants them as soon as possible so they can be copied, scanned, processed, and included in the next turn in.

Jim’s team is buried in requests for petitions so it may take a while to receive them, but you can order petitions by clicking here and filling out this form.

 

6 common sense initiatives on next year’s all-important presidential ballot — it’s super exciting.

 

Let’s all work our butts off in the final weeks of December to help Jim and his team make that happen.

 

2) The Yakima mayor who called 911 gets fired.

I love the voters of my hometown of Yakima.

 

After we put a super bright spotlight on the Yakima mayor for calling 911 to try to get law enforcement to arrest petitioners for collecting signatures for Jim’s initiatives, the people of Yakima were incensed.

 

They were so disgusted by her abuse of power that all of the mayor’s slate of candidates lost their seats and were replaced by conservative candidates. In January, the council will vote out Yakima’s 911 Mayor and replace her with one of their own.

 

I received a text from a Yakima leader shortly after the election that read:

 

“Thank you for bringing attention to the ethical concerns surrounding our mayor. They had a huge impact on November’s election — I’m proud to let you know that our city council now has a 5-2 majority conservative council. Your advocacy and mobilization of activists and voters contributed to this great outcome. The mayor’s entire leftist slate failed to get elected. She won’t be mayor in January which means you essentially recalled her by putting a bright spotlight on her shockingly inappropriate 911 call. Thank you for your support for our community and your dedication to free speech and civic participation.”

3) A local initiative in Spokane that dealt with homelessness got 75% voter support and was just ruled constitutional by the courts.

Voters are fed up with the inaction of politicians when it comes to the growing problem of homelessness.

A local citizen in Spokane filed a citywide initiative that simply required that within 1000 feet of children facilities (schools, parks, day care centers, etc), the homeless are not allowed. It received over 75% voter support.

 

Politicians tried to keep it off the ballot by filing a lawsuit. The lower court judge rejected their effort to prevent the people from voting. The court of appeals just issued its’ ruling. Not only did they affirm the judge’s decision to allow the vote BUT THEY ALSO RULED THAT THE INITIATIVE WAS CONSTITUTIONAL. This is, by far, the most definitive high court ruling on local initiatives I’ve ever seen.

 

What does this mean?

 

It means that the city of Spokane’s initiative can now be replicated in other cities or counties and/or it can be done as a statewide initiative.

If politicians won’t fix these problems, the people will do it for them.

 

Every day you help me fight back is another day Bob Ferguson failed to stop us. 

 

Richard Sanders is committed to getting the AG’s ridiculously unconstitutional ruling overturned.

We need to make sure what Bob Ferguson has been doing to me and my family never happens to anyone else ever again.
