HISTORY

The concept of forming a Political Action Committee was conceived on a very long trip returning from a Liberty State meeting in Omak. Steve was frustrated about the unwillingness of County Commissioners to consider a resolution supporting the Second Amendment. That resolution would have publicly supported the rights of the citizens of the county to bear arms, as guaranteed in the U.S. Constitution and the Constitution of the State of Washington. More importantly, it would have shown solidarity by publicly supporting the County Sheriff that stated he would refuse to enforce I-1639.

Our discussions focused around the need to find candidates that are conservative, true leaders and possess a great amount of courage. One of the involved commissioners said the following about I-1639 “I do not agree with it, but at present it is law. I hope it is over turned. When I took office, I took an oath to uphold the constitutions of Washington State and the United States”. To place all hope in others to work on getting it overturned, is a cowardly response at best. The oath of office is to defend the rights of the citizens he represents. A true leader with courage, that doesn’t agree with a law because it is unconstitutional, should take a stand to protect the rights of the people that he represents.

One of my frustrations of being a PCO is the vetting process. The Central Committee convenes on a Saturday prior to the primary, to meet and vet the declared candidates for the upcoming election cycle. At times I have asked myself, “Really, is this the best that we have to choose from?” I feel very strongly that the vetting process should be part of the recruiting process.

Fast forward to now: after much debate, thought and discussion, the PAC has been formed and is now fully functional. We are working with citizens, businesses and groups from many communities and counties to seek quality candidates for the upcoming election cycle.
