Agenda for SOS Public Meeting – Tuesday April 29, 2014

Good Evening SOS,

Our next meeting will be tomorrow, Tuesday, April 29, 2014, at the Wild River Brew Pub located at 533 NE F Street, in Grants Pass, from 5:15 PM-6:15 PM.

We understand how busy everyone is and appreciate your patience and tenacity. Stay the course!

While looking for an inspirational saying on the internet, we came across this:

If you are ever thrown into the trunk of a car, kick out the back tail lights and stick your arm out the hole and start waving like crazy. The driver won’t see you, but everybody else will. This has saved lives.

So there you go…

SOS Meeting Notes – April 15, 2014

We had another great meeting!

It’s impressive to see so many in attendance, even though we had so many members absent attending the CJ Forums!

We cannot lose sight of our Mission: “A citizen-voiced plan to provide for a secure, stable and sustainable Josephine County.”

We have worked hard to get where we are.

That being said, in the upcoming weeks before this May Election, I challenge you all to examine each and every Candidate and ask yourself, if this person is the best person to lead us and help us achieve our Mission. Everyone has an equal vote and I challenge you to use it wisely.

Men and Women have died for our right—privilege and duty to vote.

As an important side note, for me, above all else, honesty—telling the truth—all the time, is paramount in a leader. It is the heart of character. There is no side-stepping honesty. In law enforcement, if you lie, no matter how small of a lie you utter, you are fired. Immediately. As it should be. There is no room in our Criminal Justice System for lies. How much more so should that standard be applied to those who lead us in Government?

It saddens me to read in some of the candidate’s messages, that they are the “common sense” choice to be elected, when they are dishonest in their dealings. It is difficult for me not to take that as an insult to my/our character. As if honesty did not matter…

Please respect your privilege to vote and take the time to learn about our candidates. Your Vote Counts! There really are some outstanding people seeking office and I for one, appreciate their genuine sincerity in wanting to make our home a better place.
