The Greater Wenatchee EMS Council is committed to financial responsibility for the public. We believe this sales tax initiative will greatly benefit all the citizens in Chelan and Douglas County and we appreciate your consideration in investing this funding to RiverCom for the future safety of the...
I am now in my second 3-year term on the Board of Directors for the Chelan County Housing Authority. I attend once a month meetings in Wenatchee. My most pleasurable method of transportation is a ride on the Link bus. As a senior, I pay $1.25 to ride from the Lake Chelan Valley to Wenatchee, and...
RiverCom is a critical part of the infrastructure of our communities, and I am asking that you join me in renewing the RiverCom 911 Emergency Communication Systems and Facilities Tax. No matter the emergency, the staff at RiverCom quickly determine the nature of the call and then rapidly dispatch...

I would like to thank the entire community of Chelan for the resounding defeat of the Lake Chelan School District bond issue before the voters on April 23, 2019. This massive and far reaching bond issue was simply not needed. The community fully understood this by researching the facts regarding...

As it has been repeatedly pointed out, the enrollment in the LCSD has been flat for 20 years and even ...
On April 23, 2019, voters in the Lake Chelan School District (LCSD) will have the opportunity to approve a bond measure that will make important capital improvements in our schools. Our schools are overcrowded, and this issue is not going away. The District is currently debt free, and now is the...
Small Bonds and Small Projects Won’t Solve our Educational Challenges. Our former Superintendent of Public Schools, Dr. Jim Busey, has been a vocal critic of the upcoming LCSD Bond.  But based on his critiques, I respectfully submit he has inaccurately analyzed the needs of our kids and their...
