I heard a podcast interviewing two of the Texas representatives who fled the state - most recent Run for Something Pod, pretty good

Manchin doesn't want to loose his own dark money.

Important to know Michigan has a bipartisan redistricting commission now- -thankfully.
Yvonne Brandon
29:24
Thanks Carolyn. Good to known.
Yvonne Brandon

Exactly why "dark money" needs to be exposed.
Myles Heyward

Very much agreed
Myles Heyward

I made a public records request for records about voting by inmates to that 5-county consolidated jail (misdemeanor inmates & unconvicteds awaiting trial) in Pierce (as I recall). No response because private jails are not subject to WA Public Records Act.
Myles Heyward
44:05
Here’s his website: btcaresforseattleforever.com / I am so appreciative of the message @ Tim , Bobby is on call and I will bring it up to him personally, as one of his campaign managers.

can't contribute. Only voters can contribute to or support campaigns in any way. Only voters can contribute to campaigns. Perot and Reform party introduced the idea in the 1990s. Best idea it seems to me.
Myles Heyward

All good! Use your voice to share the site (btcaresforseattleforever.com) with others that you may know that can vote! Donate your democracy vouchers to change Seattle forever!

You can still testify on redistricting in many Districts in Washington!
Sharon Abreu

I would have to include the NY Times among the weakening press.
Aisha Sial

welcome Bobby Tucker. glad you’re here
Yvonne Brandon
52:57
Exactly why I subscribe to the Seattle Times. We need "real" reporters keeping their eyes on our governments, at all levels.
Carolyn Burger
53:26
Bremerton is divided into 3 legislative districts. Many people have testified that we need to change that and make it 1 or at the most 2 legislative districts. Another opportunity to testify July 26th for redistricting in the 6th Congressional district (where Bremerton is).
Leona Hassing - Pasco;
54:19
Pasco is divided into two legislative districts.
Sharon Abreu
55:38
I’m not a big fan of the Seattle Times either, which came out against I-1631 which so many of us busted our butts for. It didn’t help Seattle when it became a one newspaper town.
Sharon Abreu
55:50
imo
Sharon Abreu
56:25
If we don’t have the right to vote - and have our votes counted as we intended - we really don’t have any democracy here.
Sharon Abreu
56:36
And the ability to vote.
Sharon Abreu
01:03:57
Do you think it’s a failing of our education system that people don’t vote in primaries? Is it that people are too busy working too many hours to learn about the candidates? A combination of these problems?
Yvonne Brandon

Can we all say: "Thomas Barrack?" Trump's inauguration manager Sitting in jail tonight for corruption.
Carolyn Burger

Ha, ha- - yes!

Cindy displayed the VoteWA portal today.VoteWA is the new statewide voter reg and election management system.Sec Wyman awarded the sole-source, no bid "Request for Proposal" (RFP) contract of $10m to South Dakota's BPro Inc and WA-based Democracy Live.BPro Inc is managed by the son of Wyman's previous Chair of her re-election committee, George Munro.Democracy Live was founded and chaired by the father, Ralph Munro, who hosts fundraisers for Wyman at his South Sound estate and horse ranch, which includes a mile of Mud Bay shoreline.Note both corps' websites, after years of promoting the Munros' involvement, scrubbed "munro" after the contract signed.Anybody else think this award deserves closer look for propriety?
Sharon Abreu
01:12:35
Tim - absolutely
Yvonne Brandon
01:15:23
Trump and Steven Miller should be tried at the Hague for their crimes against humanity at the southern border.
Sharon Abreu
01:15:53
I’m sorry I need to jump onto another call now. Thanks, everyone!
