Here’s a quick recap of some key information regarding Whatcom County Sheriff Bill Elfo who is seeking reelection this year.

Sheriff Elfo supported Minutemen in 2005

In 2005, Sheriff Bill Elfo affirmed his support of the Minutemen vigilante group, which had formed around that time and was associated with the Minuteman Civil Defense Corps. This was in response to publicity about people entering Arizona illegally. That year about 100 Minutemen volunteers were recruited here in Washington State.

The day 8 Doug’s Got to Go post is a doozy, because it reminds us how glorious it will be to vote a start-to-finish Trump fan and emmisary out of the state senate office for the 42nd LD. This May 15, 2016 post of Sandy Robson’s also shows Republican Senator Doug Ericksen’s tendency to shirk responsibility for his actions.  Continue reading

Day 7 of Doug’s Got to Go has arrived and we shall celebrate it with being thankful that Republican Senator Doug Ericksen and the two other current 42nd LD representatives were unsuccessful in 2016 in overturning the enforcement by the Washington State Human Rights Commission of the Washington Law Against Discrimination making sure transgender people are protected in using the bathroom that fits their sexual identity.  Continue reading

Today, I was perusing the Public Disclosure Commission website reports filed recently by the Whatcom County Republican Party PAC (“Whatcom Republicans”). I noticed there were two Expenditure reports filed that showed the Whatcom Republicans paid $358.08 on October 9, 2017, and $214.08 on October 27, 2017, to Meridian High School.

Those two dates seemed to correlate with two events I remembered which were: the October 5, 2017 “County-wide Candidate Forum,” and the October 19, 2017 “Wake-Up Whatcom County Rally!” both held at Meridian High School.  Continue reading

Please vote in this primary election, and remind your family, friends and neighbors to vote too. If you live in Bellingham, when you vote for the City Council At-Large position, please vote for either Jean Layton or Roxanne Murphy. The Republican candidate running against them is Eric Bostrom.  [Eric Bostrom has been broadcasting hate speech on the streets of Bellingham for years and is now a candidate for office who is endorsed and supported financially by the Whatcom Republican Party.] Continue reading

Time to talk to your friendly local businesses who are members of the Whatcom Business Alliance, but are unlikely to want to be part of a strongly pro-fossil-fuel-dependancy organization, and back up Stand.earth’s wise appeal to them. LIberty Road’s Kris Halterman is calling the request send out by Stand as (pretty sure caps are in order) a “THREAT LETTER!”  Continue reading
