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.
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.
H/T Kathi! “This is very difficult to read….but very insightful as to the spread of Agenda 21 through policies in major cities now”. From the Activist Post:
The globalist design for micro-apartments is being championed by New York’s Mayor Michael Bloomberg. These “studio and one-bedroom apartments” will be no bigger than 275 to 300 sq. ft. These tiny living spaces are smaller than currently allowed by building regulations, according to a statement by Bloomberg’s office; however, the zoning regulations will be waived in order to construct the first of many compact pack ‘em and stack ‘em housing models in the city-owned area of Kips Bay.
The intention is to construct an area in NY that accommodates restricted housing space, eliminates car use in favor for walking and bicycling, and promotes mass transit. Herding the expanding population into dense areas with smaller living spaces will define the new class of poor and prepare their psychological transition toward accepting the Agenda 21 megacity concept.
From the Heritage Foundation:
China’s attempt at a high-speed rail network is fraught with corrupt officials, impossible costs, and deadly safety failures. But U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood wishes America would follow it as a model.
LaHood told The Cable last week:
The Chinese are more successful [in building infrastructure] because in their country, only three people make the decision. In our country, 3,000 people do, 3 million. In a country where only three people make the decision, they can decide where to put their rail line, get the money, and do it. We don’t do it that way in America.
His comments are stunning. Yes, that’s how Communists do it: A few people make decisions for the country and control the money, land, resources, and workers. And how has that worked out?
