Letters to the Editor
Editor, “I honestly believe that there’s not been a single cultural change or big movement that didn’t have the voice of the religious community. It’s crucial.” - Rev. Sally Bingham
Community Events, November 2015
Each day in the United States, almost 10 people are killed and more than 1,150 are injured in crashes involving a distracted driver. In 2011 alone, nearly one in five crashes in which someone was injured involved distracted driving. Moreover, in 2012, 3,328 people were killed and another 421,000 were injured in motor vehicle crashes involving a distracted driver.
A resounding thank you to the group of volunteers that assisted our office by processing tax mail in 2015!
We hope you can join us at 12:15 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 29 at Trinity Lutheran Church in Freeland for the Whidbey/Paris Global Climate Rally. The degradation of creation and its impacts are a moral crisis, which is why the Greening Congregations of Whidbey are having a rally in solidarity with people all over the planet.
I believe this campaign was more a referendum on the Whidbey General Hospital and Clinics than it was about me personally, and I am heartened by the response. We won every precinct except four, and we only lost those four by a combined 33 votes. That is a tremendous vote of confidence.
