Statement from The White House on Barbara Bush

The White House • April 18, 2018

Statement on Barbara Bush

Former First Lady Barbara Bush passed away yesterday in Houston, Texas. She was 92. Along with Abigail Adams, Mrs. Bush is one of only two First Ladies in American history to see a child follow her husband to the U.S. Presidency.

The White House released this statement last night:

President Donald J. Trump and First Lady Melania Trump join the Nation in celebrating the life of Barbara Bush. As a wife, mother, grandmother, military spouse, and former First Lady, Mrs. Bush was an advocate of the American family. Amongst her greatest achievements was recognizing the importance of literacy as a fundamental family value that requires nurturing and protection. She will be long remembered for her strong devotion to country and family, both of which she served unfailingly well. The President and First Lady’s thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of Mrs. Bush.

The U.S. flag will fly at half-staff until sunset of the day that Mrs. Bush is laid to rest.

Read statements from the Vice President and Karen Pence and from First Lady Melania Trump.

February 2018 District Meeting

When you saw the panic in Hawaii with their “Missile Attack – Not a Drill” alert, did you stop to wonder what you should do if the same message flashed on your cell phone or television screen? Come hear what to do if we face the same alert!  Andrew Koeppen, an emergency preparedness instructor, will advise us and answer questions at our meeting.

Mark your calendar: our February meeting is Thursday, February 22nd. We meet at:

Cottage Lake Assembly of God Church
15737 Avondale Road NE

Social time from 7PM to 7:30PM, meeting 7:30PM to 9PM.

We’ll also include an update on key issues in the legislative session in Olympia and a report on our three Democrat legislators’ February 17th Town Hall.  With Democrats in total control, we have to speak up and work to prevent even more taxes being dumped on taxpayers, more regulations on small business and property owners, and the other dreams of the Seattle liberals!  This is a good year to get involved or re-involved!

Hope to see you at the meeting!

Come out on Saturday to Help Elect Jinyoung!

This is the final Jinyoung Englund Campaign Super Saturday before Election Day!

It’s so important that State Republican Chairwoman Susan Hutchison is coming to doorbell, so here’s your chance to meet her and her staff while you help elect Jinyoung Englund!  Other GOP VIPs may show as well.

This is our last chance to talk to voters at the door and convince them to vote! If we don’t defeat Jinyoung’s Democrat opponent Manka Dhingra, Washington will undoubtedly become the 44th income tax state, and the 1st state to implement tax-payer-funded heroin injection sites. 

Meet at the campaign HQ (15007 Redmond-Woodinville Rd.) at 10:00am on Saturday, November 4th. Volunteers will knock on doors and talk to voters until 1:00pm. Volunteers will also be making phone calls to voters from the HQ, so you can walk and talk or sit and talk!  Coffee and donuts will be provided in the morning and pizza in the afternoon.

Now for that SPECIAL TREAT:  Englund staffer Cindy Randazzo is personally going to buy CHICK FIL A Mini-Chicken Biscuits for all the volunteers tomorrow.  Both Cindy and Jinyoung are counting on us – let’s give a good turnout for tomorrow morning – doors open at 9:30am!
