“Clean Energy Initiative Officially Filed in Olympia!
On January 25th, Washingtonians for Energy Security officially submitted initiative wording to the Secretary of State’s office. For anyone who missed the media coverage, the filing of the initiative was combined with a press conference that was covered by press outlets across the state. Speakers at the event included U.S. Congressman Jay Inslee, Sara Patton of the Northwest Energy Coalition, and Randy Hardy, a former Bonneville Power Administrator. Afterward, both KIRO and KOMO radio conducted radio interviews with members of the campaign committee, and newspapers around the state ran stories on the official launch of the initiative. By all accounts, the press launch was a huge success!! Click on the following links to read articles that were published following the press conference:
