    Hello, my name is Janet Hawver, and I’m a Thurston County voter. In the wake of the recent Health & Human Services memo threatening the rights and recognitions of transgender people, what legislation will you introduce or support to protect this marginalized community?

    I am a high school government teacher. Many of my students will be voting for the first time in this election and I am trying to get them interested in the election by having some candidates come in to speak to them. Could you come in and speak to my class before the election?

    There is a group called Journey to Justice, organizing a bike ride from Seattle, Washington to San Diego, California. They will be on their second leg of the journey, from Tacoma to Olympia on Thursday, August 2nd. The plan is for the riders to arrive by 5pm in Sylvester Park, just down the street from our church.

    We are organizing two things:

    • We are inviting other faith communities, as well as social justice organizations—especially those involved with immigration and refugees, to join us at Sylvester Park on Thursday afternoon/evening. Signs welcoming the riders and supporting immigration and refugees are welcome!

    • We are inviting everyone to join us for a pot luck supper following the welcome at the park. We are just down the street from the park, so folks can bring their contribution to the pot luck, and join us in Koinonia Hall for a welcome celebration and we will get the chance to hear from some of the riders about why they are doing this and what immigration means to them and their families!

    We are really excited about this and looking forward to working with our community to welcome the Journey to Justice riders! We would love folks to RSVP and give us an idea of how many people plan to be there. We’ll set up KH with tables and chairs, as well as a mic and amp so we can all hear what they have to say.
    We’re asking Rep. Beth Doglio to join us. You can also go to their website: to find out more information! We have more informatio, but couldn’t see a way to attach it to this email.

    My name is Dana Walker and I both publish a weekly email newsletter and I produce a weekly radio program, both called the Thunderbolt. While the radio show is available online and while it is on the air on two stations in Seattle — and while KAOS is currently considering airing it in Olympia — I am not currently on the air in Olympia. My newsletter is received (if not actually read) by just over 2,000 people, virtually all of whom live in Thurston County.

    Anyway, my policy is to notify any local people that I write about, and since I wrote about you this week then this will serve as such notification.

    You can access this week’s Thunderbolt newsletter here:

    My comments about you are contained in the review about the Olympia Standard podcast.

    You can access the archive of my radio shows here:

    These links will take you to Dropbox folders. Dropbox will ask you to open a free account, but you can just close that box and either read, download, or listen to the Thunderbolt without opening an account.

    Thank you.

    Hi Beth – I am very alarmed by the legislature’s passing of bill 6617 just after a Thurston County court found ruled the legislative leaders had violated the public records act. As both a citizen and a pubic employee I recognize the often onerous nature of public records requests, and how this can make our job harder. Even so this is a critical foundation of democracy and taking legislative action to defy a court ruling seems outright Trumpian.

    Please explain to your constituents why this happened both at all, and lacking normal public review and debate. I am now scared for the survival of my democracy, but never thought I should be as alarmed from my own state legislature vs. our dysfunctional national political direction.

    thank you

    I saw on NPR news that the state of Utah now has the lowest level of ethanol to trigger a DUI, 0.05. That is great what they, and we, really is any level above zero. That would be driving with a positive blood alcohol as they have in most of Western Europe.

    More importantly Utah also applies this ethanol level to carrying a firearm. This makes sense. An automobile is not designed as a lethal weapon but becomes one when the the operator is impaired with intoxication (actually any level of ethanol impairs performance). A firearm is actually designed as a lethal device and becomes more randomly so with any impairment of brain function. Why should it be illegal to operate a motor vehicle impaired and legal to operate a firearm, a device designed to be a lethal device, while impaired.

    Think about it.

    Godspeed in your work at the legislature.

    I have wondered for some time why the state patrol wears an American flag on its shoulder. This is a federal insignia. I have always believed that the patrol is in the employ of the State of Washington. Is there some agreement between the federal government and the WSP? If so what is it? If not, why do they wear federal identification of any kind?

    I ask this question now because with the Activities of the current federal administration it seems to me that we should look long and hard at this relationship.

    Thank you,

    There are news reports that activity is afoot in the Washington state legislature to make illegal, even criminalize acts of non-violent protest deemed “economic terrorism”.

    This would be contrary to the right of Americans to Peacefully assemble. It would shut an avenue of protest that is non-violent. If such sects were to be made felonies it would strip persons engaged in peaceful protest of their voting rights.

    There is additionally, of course, the issue of defining “economic terrorism”.

    I write to voice my strongest objection to such action and to offer my support in its opposition.

    My name is Jackson Whitley. I am a student currently doing a school project, for a Political Science class, based on campaigns for State Representative in the 22nd District. I was hoping Mrs. Doglio would be able to answer a few questions about her campaign, in whatever way she can (by phone, in person, or by email).

    Thank You,

    Jackson Whitley
