From the Chairman's Desk-June 7, 2015

Lincoln Day Dinner Highlights

Our Lincoln Day Dinner was well-attended and a lot of fun.  CVTV was there to record all the action.  Below are the key presentations from the event. 

Powerful presentation from Trevor Loudon: http://www.cvtv.org/vid_link/4453?start=1790&stop=4165

Everyone is talking about high school student, Alyssa Peterson’s speech on her winning Magna Carta essay.  Don’t miss it: http://www.cvtv.org/vid_link/4453?start=4344&stop=4773

We thank the Clark County Magna Carta Observance Committee for inspiring Alyssa and many other young people to study Magna Carta.  She was a wonderful addition to our event.  On Saturday, June 20th the Clark County Magna Carta Observance Committee is hosting an observance at the Fort Vancouver National Historic Site to celebrate the 800th anniversary, featuring historical re-enactors (and maybe more student essays?)

Our keynote speaker, Dr. Keith Smith from the Surgery Center of Oklahoma told an incredible story of following his convictions to unleash the power of the free market.  His story is about much more than quality medical care.  You can watch his speech here: http://www.cvtv.org/vid_link/4453?start=4822&stop=8038.

You can watch the entire event (minus the live auction here)

 

 

The room was decorated with incredible hand-crafted Magna Carta centerpieces, the inspiration of PCO Pamela Gandarillas and created at our headquarters by dedicated volunteers.   Notice the the wax seal, candle, quill pen & inkwell.  Not seen are the leather covered antiqued books they also spent many hours creating. 

More photos from the dinner can be found here.

This event was a success because of the extraordinary effort of extraordinary people.  We are fortunate to have so many people in the Clark County Republican Party that pitch in to get the work accomplished.  What a great night!  Thank you Katja Delavar & Bryndl Rohan, Lincoln Day Dinner co-chairmen, and the entire team of around 50 volunteers.  A complete list of the volunteers, corporate & business sponsors are here.

Jeanne Stewart announces run for County Chair (for the complete statement click here):
Our citizens want responsible, effective, accountable, and transparent government.  They deserve and expect no less. My many decades of service in both private business and public service have honed my skills as a public servant.  I believe I have the many needed assets that a County Chair should possess.,,,I believe that special Interests and cronyism of any kind should have no place in our county or any other government….My service in the following areas demonstrates I have a strong working knowledge of relevant issues and priorities of the day.

  • Current Clark County Councilor
  • Former Member of Vancouver City Council (2001-2013)
  • Board of Directors, C-Tran Public Transit Agency (6 years)
  • Board of Directors, Columbia River Economic Development Council (6 years)
  • Board of Directors, Regional Transportation Council (RTC) (2 years)
  • Commissioner, Clark County Solid Waste Advisory Commission

  • National League of Cities Transportation & Infrastructure Steering Committee
  • Association of Washington Cities Transportation & Quality Infrastructure Committee
  • Association of Washington Cities Federal Legislative Committee
  • Joint Policy Advisory Committee  (JPAC) on Transpiration

I have demonstrated time and again that I have the spine that it takes to face savage and ugly attacks by opposition and rise above it all….I am Jeanne Stewart, and I am the kind of leader Clark County needs today and moving ahead into tomorrow.  I would consider it an honor, and a privilege, to serve you as Clark County Chair.
