MLK Day 2018

On this MLK Day 2018, it is important to remember that we must stand in solidarity with the sentiment of Martin Luther King Jr. every day of the year.
In his “I have a dream” speech, and his life’s work, Dr. King called for an end to racism and the achievement of civil and economic rights.
Though some measures of social integration have been achieved, we have so much more to improve. People of all cultural backgrounds must have not only the opportunity but the right to living wages, quality healthcare, education, housing, safety net benefits, transportation, a clean environment, and personal safety.
We must each demand these things for all people, in the spirit of Dr. King. His dedication to the defense of poor people everywhere is a model for how we must build an economy for the 99% today.
Please join me in Putting People First because achieving equity and justice for all is absolutely needed to end the era of bigotry and fear mongering!


P.s. This is a lesser-known speech of MLK that is relevant now and very important. I wanted to share it with you today in hope that you have the opportunity to listen and are inspired by the shared fight for social justice:

Where’s Jaime?

This week, it appears there will be no Congressional Town Hall in WA-03!

To replace our representative in WA-03 (Clark, Cowlitz, Lewis, Klickitat, Skamania, Wahkiakum, Pacific and Thurston counties in Washington State)… We need to work hard… and smart…

We are doing just that! We’re holding coffees and town halls of our own! We’re listening to the citizens! And we are attending events to live stream content so citizens can stay informed.

We need to work closely together, and the campaign must ask for your involvement… At this point, it is a small request.

In 2016 there were approximately 421,000 registered voters in WA-03; By 2018 there will be roughly 445,000 registered voters. 30% were progressives and democrats. That’s about 134,000 people…

I’m giving my ALL – a full time commitment – to raise serious $$$ by enlisting 6000 or more people (out of ~134,000 registered democrats in the 3rd CD) to contribute $5, $10, $20 per month between now and November 2018. We have to be a team to get this done!

Transportation Issues

THIS WAS MY RESPONSE TO A FRIEND INQUIRING ABOUT TRANSPORTATION ISSUES:

I’ve been attending both the JPACT and RTC meetings for some time now.
They are the two metropolitan planning organizations for our one metropolitan planning area.
Their priorities are really different, as you may imagine.
Add to that the BIG funding questions, Funding From OR, WA, and FED.
Mark Brown, a transportation consultant, gave a WA legislative report and said there is NO NEW MONEY.
I believe we need a congressionally authorized joint powers authority (JPA) between OR and WA, with equal representation from both States; Federal funding for joint projects should be managed by this JPA and ensure the projects get done. There is precedence: NY & NJ in 1921! Imagine that!
Light rail as implemented by MAXX has capacity issues; We can discuss that. It may be more productive to be looking at other similar alternatives with significantly higher capacity and incorporate a vision for the region including Vancouver, Camas, Washougal, Gresham, and Troutdale, maybe more. It would also be interesting to look at the longer horizon, considering the anticipated growth over the next 20-30 years. The engineers will have their work cut out for themselves. AND it will mean JOBS for the entire region for years to come.
I agree with you wholeheartedly! We need to get people to voluntarily use faster public transportation options to reduce the gridlock.

David

If I am elected to congress, I will pursue authorizing Washington and Oregon to establish a joint powers authority so we can take more proactive steps in getting our Transportation and Infrastructure needs met!

For my part, I will cover all my own personal expenses! AND, We are asking you to make a recurring monthly contribution of $5, $10, or $20 each month thru November 2018! Monthly, a $5 contribution is equivalent to a LATTE, $10 to a LUNCH, and $20 to a DINNER with a glass of wine!
