"It does not take a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brush fires of freedom in the minds of men."

Education, Jobs, Gov't Efficiency Top McKenna Issues

Education, unemployment, over-regulation, a county field plan, volunteer opportunities and Wild Olympics were topics on the table at last week's Grays Harbor for Rob McKenna Steering Committee Meeting. Facilitated by McKenna Political Director Jill Fagan, the meeting maxed out available booth space at the Golden Dragon on March 20.

Fagan identified McKenna's "top three issues" as education, jobs, and government efficiency. She briefed attendees on the success of recent small business roundtables hosted by McKenna at 13 locations statewide, citing de-regulation as key for business growth. Recent polling data, a Grays Harbor "field plan" and volunteer opportunities were presented. A calendar of events was also discussed, including the possibility of a post-parade picnic with McKenna and other candidates following the Loggers Playday Parade in September.

The next steering committee meeting is scheduled for April 17 at the Golden Dragon. Contact Cathy Colley for details.
