Blaine, WA 98230
To all my Whatcom County friends,
I wanted to give you a heads up that I will be in your neck of the woods the next few evenings helping Jayson Reimer collect the last few signatures he needs for two local initiatives in the City of Blaine.
Jayson has been doing yeoman’s work (along with others) to collect the signatures door-to-door, and largely he has been very successful. He needed to get 467 signatures, and at last count, he is around 300 or so.
I will be helping him go door-to-door gathering signatures, along with our intrepid former-intern, now Freedom Foundation warrior Conner Edwards, and if you can come out and help, we can probably be completed and ready to turn in signatures by Friday or Monday at the latest. This is ample time to get these two initiatives on the ballot for the November election.
We will be meeting each night at the Cost Cutter parking lot in Blaine at 5:15ish. Please join us for fun and door-belling. It has been far easier than most predicted, I suspect, and it is good experience. Unlike candidate doorbelling – partisanship has nothing to do with whether the voter signs the initiative or not. Liberals and Conservatives alike sign these initiatives.
For more details about the two initiatives that are being signed, please go here: Initiative Details
I have discussed local initiatives as a way for local activists to make a difference on property rights and other issues. This is a hands on experience on how it works.
This week, the two labor reform initiatives will be finished to land on the November ballot, and Blaine won’t be alone.
The City of Sequim (Clallum County) activists just finished turning in their signatures on both initiatives on Monday. Read more here: Sequim Petitions for Transparency
The activists in the City of Chelan (Mason County) are turning in their signatures tomorrow with a similar press event scheduled.
The activists who have been grinding away in the City of Shelton (Mason County) are turning in their signatures this week as well.
This is what activism looks like at a grass roots level. Nobody was paid to collect signatures. Local citizens took point and led the way.
There is a lot going on in Whatcom County. This is just one event among many, but it is nice to play offense for a change. This should be just the beginning.
Be a part of this process and join in the press event later in the week or early next week when Jayson will be ready to turn in the signatures to the City Clerk.
Join Jayson and Conner and I and your other fellow freedom loving activists and help us across the finish line.
See you tomorrow night, Thursday, and Friday.
