I was tremendously proud to appear on Good Morning Northwest to present the Angels in Adoption award to State Representative Kevin Parker and Alene Alexander, the co-founder and executive director of Embrace Eastern Washington.
I am incredibly honored to receive the Defender of Housing Award from the National Association of Homebuilders (NAHB). Being the first member of Congress to be bestowed the award is truly humbling.
Fifteen years ago today, our nation suffered an unforgettable tragedy. Nearly 3,000 people died as a results of terrorist attacks on that fateful day. My heart feels heavy today when I think of the men, women, and children that lost their lives in result and the families that had to deal with that loss in the aftermath.
The Spokane Interstate Fair opens this Friday. There will be many festivities to experience during this 10-day fair-- even sharks! Don't forget to stop by the Spokane County Republican Party booth while you're there too! Additional information about the fair can be found here.
It was wonderful to spend a few days in Walla Walla for the Walla Walla Frontier Days Fair and Parade this past weekend. I enjoyed meeting with friends from the Walla Walla County Republicans at their booth and everyone else at the Fair. I am continually awed by the effort and dedication of those in our community who work so hard to make the festivities happen year after year.
