They gave their lives for our freedom

WSRP Chairman Susan Hutchison sent out the following message on Friday May 26:

As we enjoy our Memorial Day weekend plans with friends and family, let’s remember to take a moment on Monday to acknowledge the great sacrifices that have been made to guarantee our freedom.

Our first Republican President established Memorial Day to honor the many who died to save the Union. Abraham Lincoln’s words in the Gettysburg Address are as true now as they were then:

“…that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion — that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain — that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom — and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”

Even now, our divided country unites in honor of the brave men and women who have given their lives in service to the United States of America. I hope you will share Lincoln’s words with your family as you observe Memorial Day 2017.

We know what we’re up against!

We need you!  Jay Inslee and the Olympia Democrats want to impose their extreme agenda on all of us.  The Democrats won’t fix unfair car tabs, and they want YOU to pay a state INCOME TAX!

To block the Democrats, we need to win several legislative elections in 2017!  Please donate $25, $50, $75, $100 or more to defeat the Democrats.

In the State Senate, a GOP victory is now essential to keep our slim 25-to-24 Republican majority.  The most crucial is the 45th Legislative District, where Republican Jinyoung Lee Englund is running to hold onto the seat once held by the late Andy Hill.

Two other GOP Senate candidates this year are Senator Phil Fortunato in the 31st Legislative District and Senator Shelly Short in the 7th Legislative District.

In the State House, Democrats hold a 50-to-48 majority, and two Republicans – Representative Jacquelin Maycumber (7th LD) and Representative Morgan Irwin (31st LD) are defending their seats.  We need to win both races to remain in striking distance of winning a GOP majority in 2018.

The stakes are high, and your action is what we need!  Please help elect Jinyoung Lee Englund and all the great GOP candidates in 2017 – by donating donate $25, $50, $75, $100 or more.

In memory of Carol Newhouse, wife of Rep. Dan Newhouse

WSRP Chairman Susan Hutchison sent out the following message on Wednesday May 17:

On behalf of the Republican Party, I want to express condolences to Congressman Dan Newhouse and his family who are grieving the loss of their wife and mother.  Carol Newhouse passed away this past weekend at the age of 62 after a long and courageous battle with cancer. On Monday, Dan and Carol would have celebrated their 35th wedding anniversary.

The Newhouse family will be having a private service, but personal notes may be posted at http://www.valleyhillsfh.com/obituaries/Carol-Newhouse/

We pray that God will bless the Newhouse family in their sorrow.

Chaos in Seattle: Democrats vs. The Rule of Law

Bellevue, May 1 – WSRP Chairman Susan Hutchison issued the following statement today:

“On behalf of all citizens of Seattle, we hold the elected officials of the city responsible for the safety of people and protection of property at today’s May Day protests.

“With Seattle’s Socialist Councilwoman, the rich radical Kshama Sawant, and her colleagues calling upon today’s May Day protesters to shut down traffic and block highways, the probability of violence is high.

“We agree with Captain Ron Mead of the Washington State Patrol, who has said, ‘Any rhetoric calling for the shutting down of freeways is reckless and irresponsible….  It’s unsafe for both protesters and motorists alike.’

“People can exercise their First Amendment rights without causing their fellow citizens to suffer. If traffic is blocked and chaos ensues, emergency response teams, families, children on school buses, and small businesses could be at risk.

“The results could be disastrous.  Governor Inslee, Mayor Murray, and the City Council Democrats should be held liable for any failure to protect the people.”
