The home rule charter board on the ballot this November is hitting the voters of Yakima County fast and hard, started by a 'grassroots' organization named Central Washington Progress. Their website attempts to conceal what their true agenda is but their affiliations cannot be hidden.
They are pushing a radical left wing agenda under the auspices of 'mob rules', if they are successful this county will no doubt become perpetually bankrupt!
Their affiliations include groups such as Planned Parenthood, Sierra Club, Social Justice Foundation, Washington State Environmental Council and a host of unions including the SEIU. They are operating under the banner of the Win/Win Network (Google it).
If they achieve the goal of front loading the freeholder candidates this election cycle and rewriting our county charter the uncertainties and misery they will cause for this county will be incalculable and businesses will suffer greatly or just give it up.
I have not yet ascertained who is funding this effort but it is a reasonable assumption that a mix of federal/state grant monies combined with the wealth of left wing 'investors' like George Soros and his ilk are at work here.
We do not need the uncertainties of a 'mob rules board' determining our governmental structure, haven't we had ENOUGH of these failed experiments in socialism?
