Success! Olympia News Coming Soon!

Wow. When I posted my proposal for weekly legislative coverage on Saturday, I figured most of my readers would not see it until Monday and a few donations would slowly trickle in. I couldn’t have been more wrong. During the last two days, there has been an outpouring of support and, yes, we hit our goal.

Even Sen. Doug Ericksen is excited!

Starting in January, tune in Tuesday mornings for weekly updates from Olympia! We will be bringing you the straight scoop from inside the Capitol dome, focusing on the senators and representatives from Whatcom, Skagit and the San Juans, but covering the challenges and issues facing our entire state.

This would not have been possible without your support. Thank you to everyone who contributed, it means a great deal and  will allow me to do some really neat things for this blog. If you didn’t get a chance to support this effort, obviously you still can. The link will stay live through April.

For those of you who love this blog, but forget to check back on a regular basis, check out our subscription function in the top right box of this site. Punch in your email address and you will receive an email as soon as the latest post is live.

Thank you again for all your support. 

-Riley and Bryna Sweeney

Anyone buying the “coal terminals are good for trade” mantra is an idiot and I hope you will shine your laser sharp beacon on them.

  2. Yay!!! Thank you Riley!

  3. Will you be buying lunch for starving public servant Sen. Doug Ericksen? His feeding at the public trough is insatiable dont’cha know! Bless his heart.

  4. Thank you for continuously invigorating citizen engagement in government at the local, state, and federal levels.

    • You are very welcome. Thank you for your hard work on behalf of the 40th, but don’t think I’ll go easy on you just because you are a fan of the blog. 🙂

  5. […] gearing up for my 2014 legislative coverage, I decided to check in on some of the unresolved efforts from 2013. One of those is Governor […]
