Tell them in D.C.
Let it be known that I make a motion on the floor of the
North Bend and Snoqualmie city councils that motion being for
them to each assign one or two people who are knowledgeable in
government politics and have a firm grasp on the Growth
Management Act. I motion the city councils to send these persons ready and
prepared to Washington, D.C.
Send them there with a message from the people of this
Valley, that we the people say "no more," and that we have said
no from the beginning. But no one who has the power really gives
a monkey's uncle about what the people of this Valley don't want.
I make my motion to the people and for the people, but
my motion must be seconded. Do I hear, "I second the motion"?
We need a knowledgeable person to go forth for our
Valley and fight for our citizens' rights, upon the doorsteps of the
White House and Congress, to tell them that until death do we not want
to see any more massive growth in our Valley, etc., etc. And we,
as citizens, have a whole city council that works for us and, are
legally bound by our wishes as a community.
So raise up your arms and put your city council to work for
you and have it stop the devastation of our freedom. And let your
city council fight for what we have and what we don't want to lose, as
they should, or else they should get their pearly white hair out of
It is time we put our taxes to work for us. No more growth,
no mining, no blowing up the Snoqualmie Falls, no Falls
Crossing, no new business district, no nothing of the sort. As I have
always said, slow growth is a man buying a parcel of land and
building his home, not a man, backed by corporations, building his
empire on my freedom, my hillside, my Valley, my life. I hope you
feel the same way, too!
Our taxes can send our voice to the Capitol and let our side
be heard, and that is what I am asking for here. I am Charlotte
Irene Noel, born in Fall City and raised on a country mile. I am a part
of Moon Valley and each rip of her soil is a rip in my soul, and a
tear in my britches. And if it keeps going, you can take out the
"r" out of britches and that is what I will be, and I don't want to
