Please join ERC at the Red Lion Bellevue at 6PM on April 2 when our speakers will be Tim Eyman and Glen Morgan, speaking on “Fearless Activism“.
Tim Eyman is best known for sponsoring many conservative ballot initiatives in Washington, including I-695 (“$30 Car Tabs”), I-747 (1% limit on property tax levy increases), I-18 (reducing the King County Council from 13 members to 9), I-900 (government performance audits), I-960 (2/3rd legislative vote to raise taxes), and many others. This year he’s promoting Initiative 973, “Bring Back Our $30 Car Tabs”, which would repeal the onerous Sound Transit car tab tax among others, and Referendum 80, “Give Them Nothing”, which would repeal recent pay raises for state legislators and statewide elected officials. He has stood strong in the face of legal persecution by the Washington State Attorney General, who is demanding he be permanently banned from political activity in Washington. His web site is http://www.permanentoffense.com/.
Glen Morgan is Executive Director of the Citizens Alliance for Property Rights. He was the Grassroots Director and the Property Rights Director at Freedom Foundation from 2011 until 2015. He enjoys creating videos documenting Big Government’s abuses of citizens, particularly on property rights issues. He frequently testifies on property rights issues at local government hearings and at the Washington State Legislature. He has filed over 430 campaign finance complaints with the Public Disclosure Commission (from late 2016-2019) which have resulted in over 50 lawsuits against state legislators, county Democratic Party committees, labor unions, judges, and other politicians who violated Washington’s campaign finance laws. His web site is http://www.wethegoverned.com/.
Some activists write letters to the editor. Groups such as the American Coalition for Equality (ACE) hold state politicians accountable. Organizations such as Family Policy Institute of Washington (FPIW) and Citizens Alliance for Property Rights (CAPR) alert citizens to bills that affect their families and candidates that support property rights.
