8. Steve Skipper (CYPRESS), 9th Congressional District State Republican Party Executive Board Member (Phone:  (253) 874-6799 or email:  He wants you to volunteer to have a walk out in your precinct for Voter ID.  Call him or email him.  A very small group of voters will make the difference in the next election.  We don't have a choice-if we don't do the work (doorbell), we won't have the changes we want in Olympia.  We need all three of our candidates to win their races.  There may not be an opponent against Skip Priest.  However, we still need to help Skip by inviting him to walk with us in our own precincts.  We need to take all the candidates into the neighborhoods before they are committed towards the Miloscia's of this world.  Miloscia will work hard but we can out walk him and do it smarter.

11. The District Caucus held April 6th, 2002 was a tremendous success with 73 delegates attending.  The 30th District is the best district in the state.  The platform resolutions were important and we had a rewarding Saturday to put forth resolutions.  There were 22 delegates set for the State Convention. 
12. Charles Brezina (CAMELOT), email: Talked about the Republican Platform Committee.  A final meeting was April 23rd.  The final draft was not ready for this meeting.  The Platform Committee should start earlier to address the issues that reflect the intent of the grassroots. 
13. State Republican Executive Board Committeewoman, Joan Monteith (email:  The Executive Board unaninimously agreed to appeal the  Blanket Primary System.  A new walking list will soon be available.  There will be an Executive Board Meeting Sunday, April 21st.  California has a party registration where party registration is a state of mind in Washington State.  Lawyers are confident that the case will be brought to 7th Circuit Court and if necessary to the Supreme Court.  We are getting help from National Republican Party Committee lawyers. 
14. We should be getting our registration for the State Convention in the next weeks.  The Keynote speaker will be Rosario Marin, our federal treasurer.
