Salish BeeThe General Assembly of the Community Rights Coalition of Jefferson County, Washington will meet Saturday, August 24th– 9:30 AM to 11:30 AM at the Quimper Unitarian Universalist Fellowship in Port Townsend, Washington … 2333 San Juan Avenue. We meet every two weeks.

  •  Sponsorship of the film series on GMO’s and in support of I-522
  • Other projects

Important information will be provided about the on-going public education project of the Home Rule Charter Taskforce.  Members of the taskforce have formed a Ballot Measure Committee (legal state registered) in order to raise funds to pay for educational materials, advertising, and other expenses. The Ballot Measure Committee is called “Yes! On Home Rule” The group  will act outside of the CRC umbrella and will have its own website with links to campaign materials and candidate information. This committee will be able to collect donations, keep accurate financial records, and file follow-up paperwork with the PDC while advocating for the passage of a Home Rule Charter in Jefferson  County.

The Home Rule Task Force (the original group of the CRC) will be sponsoring 3 public “Meet the Candidate” forums in September and October.  These will be PUBLIC INFORMATION forums that allow the candidates in each district to present their statements and platforms and also to answer questions from the public.

The “Yes! On Home Rule” committee will be holding a volunteer strategy meeting to plan future events and activities.  All friends are welcome to attend.  The Meeting will be held on Wednesday, August 28th at the Tri-Area Center in Chimacum.  The meeting will start at 6:00 PM.
