Katy escapes during the Hungarian Revolution

Posted by

A neighbor, Katy, gives her account:

My grandparents spoke German at home. My grandfather was Polish, meeting my grandmother during WWI.  They lived happily until WWII.

When Hitler came into power, Hungarian Germans sided with Nazis.  All bridges were destroyed during WWII. In 1944, my mother was shopping with some friends. They wanted to go on the trolley but it was too crowded. Then the bridge was blown up. Everyone on the trolley died.  The Germans bombed the bridges to thwart the Russians, setting charges underneath.  But when the river froze it could be crossed. Read more »

32nd District Candidate Forum, Thursday, July 19th

Posted by

Join the Shoreline Caucus for its 32nd District Candidate Forum on Thursday evening, July 19th, at 7 PM, and please consider coming early for refreshments and conversation at 6:30 PM.  The forum will be held at the:

Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Senior Center
18560-1st Ave. N.E.
Shoreline, 98155
In the dining room

SPU Acquisition Presentation:

Before the forum begins, you’ll hear a short presentation from Dan Thwing about Shoreline’s plan for the “SPU Acquisition”, the City of Shoreline’s plan to purchase the water system from Seattle Public Utilities.  The cost will be roughly $52 million – $90 million, plus an additional $14 million for capital construction, paid for by a revenue bond and seen by residents as an increase in their water bills.  There will be a vote on this project in November, and it would be wise to become knowledgeable about this project in advance – some feel the project is mis-guided, and not an effective use of taxpayer funds.

Following that presentation, the evening will be devoted to a candidate forum for Washington State Representative Candidates in the 32nd District

  • Randy Hayden for Position 1, running against Cindy Ryu
  • Eric Alvey and Bob Reedy for Position 2, running against Ruth Kagi

The presidential race gets all the media attention, but we need to carefully choose our local representatives as well.  Washington State is facing serious economic challenges, and the Washington State House and Senate are the ones who oversee our economic and regulatory environment.  In your opinion, is Washington State on the right track?  If you’d like an opportunity to meet and speak to candidates running for office in the 32nd district, please join us for this informative and enjoyable evening.

Do you feel the country has been on the right track?  If not, do you believe we need to make some personnel changes in the Senate as well as the White House?

Dr. Art Coday and State Sen. Michael Baumgartner are the Republican contenders challenging Sen. Maria Cantwell.  Which one of these gentlemen is best prepared to successfully challenge Maria Cantwell, and how will you be certain which to vote for in the primary?

The Shoreline Caucus is holding a Senatorial Candidate Forum on Thursday, May 17th.  You are invited to join us, and make your own decision about the best candidate for this job.

The 2012 election is widely considered to be one of the most pivotal elections of most peoples’ lifetime, and decisions about who to support must be carefully considered.  Please take a couple of interesting hours to learn about these senatorial candidates, one of whom you’ll be voting for in November.

Further, we’d like to know what questions you’d like these candidates to address.  Please send your questions to info@shorelinecaucus.com, and we will have the forum’s moderator direct the questions to the candidates.

Learn about the March precinct caucuses

Posted by

Thursday, February 16th, at 7 PM (refreshments at 6:30):
Richmond Beach Congregational Church (enter from the back of the building)
1512 Northwest 195th Street
Shoreline, WA 98177-2820

Has the tea party movement lost its fervor?  During the 2010 election, tea party members changed the outcome of elections across the country, sending a group of conservatives to Congress, and electing governors and state legislators nationwide.  There was no doubt that the voice of the people was being heard, and it looked as if the citizens would once again have an influence in the government of this country.

The precinct caucuses are where democracy begins.  There will be no presidential primary in Washington State this cycle, so the caucus process is our only way to voice our desire for who our presidential candidate should be.  Further, the delegates to the Republican national convention start here – even if you don’t plan to go to the national convention, wouldn’t you like to have a say in who does go to represent our state?

At the precinct caucuses, your vote counts heavily.  Also, there will be a straw poll at the caucuses which may get national attention, coming as it does prior to Super Tuesday.

And, we’re going to hold our own straw poll at the meeting, so come let us know who you prefer as our presidential candidate.  Let’s get active and engaged through the rest of this election cycle, and make sure that 2012 exceeds what we accomplished in 2010!
