Rep Schmick's agenda and tactics to close a major portion of the JWPT have been pretty well exposed over the last few days. Personally, I cannot interpret his actions as anything other than corrupt, and I cannot stand by and just watch.
I have been clumsily getting my feet wet. At first, I felt like I was spinning my wheels. Then, recently, I feel like I have been gaining some traction. But it could also go backwards.
There is a public plan taking shape, though. It will be a battle, and an uphill one, at that. But I am so encouraged by the roster of highly capable and influential people that are getting involved.
I wouldn't be throwing down, if I didn't think we could win this.
