The events on the calendar are not necessarily sponsored or endorsed by ERC, but we are providing this archive of the most recent Event Calendar for the benefit of ERC members.

(Last Updated May 2, 2015)


Republican Friends,


The filing for any candidate position in King County is May 11 - May 15.   



What's the hottest race in the 2015 election?  Meet Teri Hickel - Federal Way's answer to the WEA union's hand-picked appointee.


Teri Hickel is running for State Representative in this year's special election in the 30th Legislative District.  Teri is a community leader in Federal Way, with a special dedication to children and education.  Her victory would take us one step closer to running the State House!  If the GOP had the majority in the State House, we would already have a balanced budget with no new taxes - without any need for a special legislative session.


Please CLICK HERE to give $10, $25, $50 or more today to help us elect Teri Hickel - a special election victory by Teri would bring us one step closer to removing Frank Chopp as Speaker!       


THE OP-ED REVIEW is a great compilation of the week’s local to international political stories you may have missed. To subscribe hit mailto:garyfoss3@comcast.netGary  Gary Foss lives in south King County.
