Very busy weekend trying to be multiple locations at once, starting with annual Valley Fair breakfast in Valley at the Holy Ghost Catholic Church on Saturday morning at 8 am. Then on to the 7th District Leg Committee meeting over lunch in Wilbur. Fredi Simpson led a spirited debate on immigration policy; this will be a tough issue for the upcoming national elections. We were blessed to recruit Dennis Fiess of Reardan to take my place as Treasurer, we need to avoid the appearance of a conflict of interest with my campaign. Then home again and ready to depart by 6:30 am with Craig for the Omak Stampede Parade with campaign signs etc. for Cathy McMorris Rodgers. Joined Rep. Joel Kretz and others on a tractor and flatbed provided by Jim Rowland and driven by Joel’s son, Jed (see photos). Topped off the day with a delightful lunch with Paul & Nancy Nash and family, and the opportunity to kick back and enjoy good conversation. I am truly grateful for the Nashes warm hospitality, it’s nice to have a home base when I’m campaigning in Okanogan County!
