The Plumas County Republican Women held its monthly meeting at the Graeagle Meadows Clubhouse on Thursday, Aug. 23, with Congressman Doug LaMalfa as the featured speaker.
The congressman, a farmer from Richvale, addressed a variety of topics, including the economy, veterans’ services, tax cuts, health care, border security and employment opportunities.
Ryan Rogers, a site coordinator of a wellness center with Plumas County Behavioral Health Services, spoke about the upcoming Stand Down Program designed to provide information and resources for area vets. Rogers said that by the time the program takes place Sept. 22, some 40 exhibitors will be on hand to offer assistance, information and resources to veterans.
Finally, Allison Olsen, an advocate with the California Federation of Republican Women, outlined the contents of 11 propositions that will be on the Nov. 6 ballot. She suggested that, in many cases, the titles of the propositions may not always reflect the real intention of the proposed legislation. She emphasized the need to become informed and to study each proposition.
The next meeting of the Republican Women will be held at Cuccia’s Restaurant in Graeagle. Look for the date and time in Feather Publishing newspapers.
