Jim from Spokane responded quickly after reading Steve’s opinion piece in last Saturday’s Spokesman-Review opposing the VA MISSION Act. He saved the campaign a copy and sent it on to headquarters with a heart-felt letter.
“I wouldn’t be where I am without the care I received from the Puget Sound VA Health Care System there in Seattle and American Lake.”
If you missed the op-ed in the Spokesman-Review, it’s available online here.
Read on for more tidbits from the media, the picket-line and the tavern.
- The Video Voters Guide is live! Not sure of the airing schedule on TV but you can see Steve’s clip here: www.tvw.org/video-voters-guide/. Look for “Steve Hoffman” on the left side of the page. The names are listed in random order.
- Aberdeen radio station KXRO interviewed Steve early on Tuesday morning. The reporter asked thoughtful questions and Steve provided answers that surely woke people up as they drove to work! “I want to remind working people that we create all the wealth in this society and that if we stick together, we have power. I’m hoping that my campaign can help build a working-class movement to stand up to and stop the attacks.” Listen to the full interview here.
Where’s Steve headed next?
- Saturday, June 9th, Steve and campaign volunteers are joining the “Defend Women’s Reproductive Freedom, Say ‘No!’ to misogynists and white supremacists” picket against Patriot Prayer and the Joey Gibson for U.S. Senate campaign and their call to defund Planned Parenthood. Meet at 11 a.m., Planned Parenthood – Kent Valley Health Center, 10056 SE 240th #A, Kent, WA. Facebook event is here.
- Beer, peanuts and Steve are coming together for a fund raiser at the Slow Boat Tavern, Thursday, June 14th, 6:00 to 10:00 p.m. There’ll be light snacks, great beer and lots of time to meet Steve and hear from him firsthand about what he’s seeing, learning and discovering from running for U.S. Senate.
