Dan Dagget to Speak on the Benefits of Ranching and Farming October 6, at the Rome Grange, Bellingham

Citizens’ Alliance for Property Rights
Dan Dagget, author of Gardeners of Eden – Rediscovering Our Importance to Nature
Saturday. October 6, noon til 3:00 at the Rome Grange, 2821 Mount Baker Hwy
Bellingham, WA
Please join CAPR as Dan Dagget describes a conservative alternative to liberal environmentalism.
Private land management via grazing is a better way to a healthy environment than is protectionism via no touch plans and programs. Some measure success, environmental and otherwise, in terms of their ability to control more of the environment (and therefore of us) via government regulation. To others, Conservatism is the home of the free market, of rewarding people for producing outcomes, not applying policies.

Is the GMA Harming Rural, Unincorporated King County?

Asphalt Plant Near Renton?

It has been said that the first (and perhaps the last) question of philosophy is, “What is the good?”  With respect to shaping and managing growth in Washington, that question was supposed to be addressed by a model designed to make sure laws and regulations are in place so that competing considerations are addressed fairly and consistently.  That model consists of the Washington State Growth Management Act (GMA) as the top-level guidance, followed by a county comprehensive plan for a regional focus, followed by zoning for specific uses within a county, and completed by the permitting process.  That model is again in danger of failing the residents of unincorporated King County.

Skagit County - Charter Push to Deny Rights

Only seven counties in Washington State have adopted the charter system of government. Seven out of 39 is almost 18% which is not an amount that signifies a large interest in this governing format statewide. The majority of residents of the 32 traditional counties see no advantage in changing their style of local governing. In fact, an argument can be made the charter system is not a good fit for the seven which adopted it. Charter counties become expensive in increased salary costs, bureaucracy laden, and less responsive to constituents.
