Quote of the Week:
“It is a common myth that important elections only take place every 4 years. Important state and county elections for various offices occur every 1-2 years, and because turnout is lower, your vote can actually make even more of a difference.
The same goes for making positive social change: engaging close to home is where your activism is most apt to produce results that will impact your daily life and the lives of your neighbors and community.” – Lisa Ornstein, co-founder, Olympia Indivisible
There’s a LOT of events and issues shaking this week in Thurston County! Please read this special, County-focused Call to Action and use your activism to make a difference close to home!
July 21 Zoom Town Hall with Derek Sanders
When: July 21 at 7:30 pm. Register here.
Description: Derek is Olympia Indivisible’s endorsed candidate for Thurston County Sheriff. He is fighting an uphill battle in running against longtime Sheriff John Snaza who has a long record of over-spending, disregard for public health, disregard for his staff, and lack of transparency with the public.
We want our OI members to get to know Derek, to be informed on what Derek sees as necessary changes to the Sheriff’s office, and to help understand his vision for building transparency and accountability in Thurston County’s Sheriff’s Office.
Action: Mark your calendar, register, and show up!
Keep up with what is happening with candidates on OI’s Election 2022 resource page which includes the New Candidate Support Calendar. And discover more about OI plans and activities on the website.
