Port Angeles, WA - Local GOP members and friends gathered July 12, at Joshua’s Restaurant, in Port Angeles. Clallam County Republican Treasurer Kaj Ahlburg of Port Angeles introduced Tim Harris, attorney for Building Industry Association of Washington (BIAW).
Harris explained to the 25 attendees a variety of BIAW’s concerns. Some of the issues discussed were: Property rights, Voter fraud, State Supreme Court, upcoming elections, Strormwater regulations. Heat stress rules, and the Growth Management Act (GMA) and many of its repercussions, such as critical areas ordinances.
Harris discussed a property rights issue in Blaine, which has to do with a retaining wall. The 4 foot retaining wall, is ten feet from the international border. The local residents have been inundated with demands on their property. Dennis Schornack, while representing the international boundary commission made several demands on the couple and threatened “or else” fines. Harris at BIAW became involved and asked Pacific Legal Foundation to also help the couple from Hawaii, who had built their dream home in Blaine. The two organizations contacted Representative Rick Larson to also help.
President Bush recently became involved in the matter and fired Schornack, as a U.S. Commissioner to the International Boundary Commission, who is also a member of the International Joint Commission. “Thank God for President Bush,” declared Harris.
“Believe it not there is actually voter fraud going on,” announced Harris. He referred to the 2004 close election where Governor Christine Gregoire won by 129-133 votes. “She actually lost--- probably by several thousand,” he surmised.
He described a union backed organization, in Pierce County named ACORN. (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now).
Pierce County Prosecutor is also not looking into ACORN’s resources.
Ahlburg reported that he had been an observer in KING county during the elections and noticed many duplicated ballots.
Harris discussed the upcoming elections and the importance of next year’s elections. He mentioned that he hopes Dino Rossi would run for Governor and also mentioned Attorney General Rob McKenna, who will be running as an incumbent.
The BIAW attorney expressed his disappointment with the state Supreme Court in many decisions.
