When the dealing with local issues the best information comes from the firsthand reports of the people who are there. Common Threads NW’s mission is to focus on the common issues facing Whatcom, Skagit, San Juan and Island counties. These four areas are served by the 40th and 42nd Districts in Olympia and have similar leadership in place, with common goals and agendas. The people who live in these counties and pay the taxes will be well served by an informed citizenry.
To help in this effort, Common Threads NW has created an easy way for “Citizen Journalists” to share what occurs at the many local committees, boards, council and district meetings. When submitting your report we do require that you provide your name and contact information so that we can reach you if additional verification is needed. When your report is posted it will be published under the author of “Common Voices.”
