HEALTHCARE and COLA

As you have probably heard by now, the Washington State House of Representatives has released a budget that cuts the amount of money we receive, as educators, for healthcare. This means we would be expected to pay more out of our own paychecks to cover medical costs, on top of the COLA we have already lost out on for 6 years now.

We need you to show up at Liz Pike’s new office in Camas, from 4 to 6 on Friday, June 5th–tomorrow, wearing red, and to tell her that it is time for educators to receive the pay and benefits we deserve:
– Let her know that we expect the state legislature to comply with the Washington State Supreme Court’s McCleary Decision and to fully fund education.
– Let her know that what is good for students is good for educators, and what is good for educators is good for students.
– Let her know that we need the state legislature to protect levy funds.
– Let her know that it is time to do the right thing for our kids.

Details from Liz Pike’s invitation are pasted below. Please join us for this important event. Members of the media are likely to be on hand, and we need to make sure that our voices are heard.

Pike’s district office to hold open house June 5 Rep.

Liz Pike is inviting 18th District citizens to join her Friday, June 5 for an open house at her new district office in Camas.
“This is an opportunity for local citizens to come to downtown Camas, see my new office, and visit with me about the issues affecting our district,” said Pike, R-Camas.

The open house will be held from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. in Suite 206 of the Clara Street Block Building, located at 307 N.E. Birch Street in Camas. Refreshments will be served.

“I believe one of the most important jobs as a state representative is being accessible to the people I serve. That’s why I continue to maintain a district office in Camas,” added Pike. “I enjoy meeting with people and listening to their comments and concerns about state government. I hope we can get a nice attendance at the open house.”
Citizens may also contact Pike through her website at http://www.representativelizpike.com or call her district office in Camas at (360) 210-4534.
