NETWORK WITH OTHERS -- CAPR has planned this SPECIAL DAY  so many can gain expertise listening to experts on property rights and the most important issues we all fight in Washington State no matter where you live or what your property use entails.

We all face too many insults to our constitutionally protected property rights!  Attend and share your experiences advocating for property rights and learn what others are doing in their activism!


Representative David Taylor of the 15th District   

Representative Taylor is widely recognized for his commitment to Washington's citizens!

Whether the Legislature is in session or not, my priorities remain the same: LESS GOVERNMENT, LOWER TAXES, MORE FREEDOM! The decisions I make in Olympia are filtered through these priorities. I believe state government has grown too large at the expense of everyday taxpayers. The continual drumbeat for more regulations and more taxes has eroded much of the freedoms upon which our country was founded.

Seattle Radio Talk Show Host Todd Herman Image result for todd herman

An innovative thinker with common sense principles, respected talk radio host Todd Herman is noted for his down to earth and straight talk on issues in Washington.

Conservative talk radio host with a bit of rock and roll sensibility hosted by a Seattleite who has been blessed with a strange adventure of a life. Hand to mouth musician, radio guy way back, repeat start-up CEO, Fortune 500 tech executive, worked at the highest level of politics in Washington D.C. and came home determined to tell the truth about what he saw (hint: it's worse than you know). We value truth, discussion, debate, true compassion for people and believe the bigger the government the lesser the humanity.
