From KC Council Member Kathy Lambert

Please join me at a fundraiser for Paul Graves, our next 5th District Representative in the Washington State House of Representatives.

It'll be a night of blues and blueberries in North Bend!
The setting, In the shadow of Mt. Si at the beautiful art studio of Dick and Sallie Burhans, is perfect for a garden party.

There will be fine wine and blueberry shortcake supplied by the nearby Bybee farm

and live blues performed by the Max Cannella Project. 
Don't miss this unforgettable night!

NOW is the time to get our donations in to our candidates so they know their funding for October mailers, paid canvassers and phone calling.  Also, let’s send letters to the editor promoting Republican candidates.

                          Sign Waving Blitz!     For Donald Trump

                       2nd & 4th Wednesday of September & October   

                                  from 3:00-6:00 pm 


What is a sign waving Blitz?   It is volunteers holding Donald Trump signs and American flags on I-5 overpasses from 196th to exit 210.


What a beautiful and patriotic sight to see the American flag and local grassroots supporters waving signs up and down the I-5 corridor during rush hour! We can reach 20,000 people in 3 hours!


                            Our first Blitz is this Wednesday!


For other locations Please contact Carolyn Strong at  info@trumpvolunteermovement.com or 206-227-4012 if you can participate. She will be coordinating the overpasses with other volunteers.   We have signs, bring flags if you have them.


This will continue through election day on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of each month.


 This can be lots of fun and it shows the county that the support for Trump is strong in WA State.
