Liz Pike Announces Plans to Run for 18th District State Representative, Position 2

Liz Pike, former Camas City Council Member, has filed with the Washington State Public Disclosure Commission as a candidate for State Representative, District 18.  This seat is currently held by Representative Ed Orcutt, who is now in the 20th District due to redistricting.

“I am running for State Representative because I want to help restore the public’s faith in state government.  I am disappointed to lose Representative Orcutt as our district’s State Legislator.  I have decided to run for his seat to try to maintain the strong representation and courage he has provided,” said Liz. “If we commit to the ideal of reducing burdensome regulations and onerous rules, and work to shrink the size of government by prioritizing spending, our State will, once again, become business friendly.  What we desperately need is more private sector job growth.  Our State cannot continue on its current path.”

Liz is a small business owner of Pike Advertising Agency since 1995. She is currently contracted to serve as Political Affairs Director for the political action committee of the Building Industry Association of Clark County.

Liz was raised on a dairy farm in Brush Prairie and has lived in the 18th District most of her life.  She operates a small sustainable farm in Fern Prairie raising sheep, turkeys, chickens and grows fruits, vegetables and berries.  Liz has two grown children.

The campaign website is LizPike.us.  Liz can be reached at Tel. (360) 281-8720 or by email pikeadvertising@comcast.net or on FaceBook under “Liz Pike.”

Legislature Announces Enough Votes to Okay Homosexual Marriage

by lewwaters

Seattle Times reporting, “Sen. Mary Margaret Haugen, D-Camano Island, said she supports gay marriage legislation in the Senate — giving proponents the 25 votes needed for passage.”

Four Republican legislators are being reported as signing on to the bill as well. They are Sen. Steve Litzow, Sen. Cheryl Pflug as well as King County councilman Reagan Dunn (who thinks Republicans will elect him as Attorney General), and two House Republicans, Rep. Glenn Anderson and Rep. Maureen Walsh who co-sponsored the house bill.

In the meantime, a $1.5 Billion budget gap, high unemployment and struggling taxpayers take a back seat to legalizing homosexuals to marry.

This blog will not support any Republican who supports this homosexual marriage bill.

Some so called conservatives are expressing it is time that we conservatives “let go” and allow this to pass. What kind of values do you have if you aren’t willing to stand for them?

I am left wondering, where is Kirby Wilbur and the WSRP as these 5 RINO’s abandon the GOP platform in support of this? Is this why the Republican party is falling apart today, values, principals and platforms mean nothing?
