When every attempt is being made to bring the community together on the impending layoffs at ALCOA Intalco Works it comes to light that one of the City Council People in Ferndale used her title and city e-mail address to “report” that a rally on April 23rd in Pioneer Park was not “compliant” with the Governor’s dictates. Pictured below the reporting person is in the Contact Email the Contact Name and Phone. Doug Ericksen is the one this person wants arrested.
She in fact; instead of talking to fellow members of the community; thinks State Senator Doug Ericksen should be arrested. These records came to light after a public records request from the wethegoverned.com website and the article here is the 2nd in the series about the people who have been enlisted to save the populace from COVID and were recruited by Governor Inslee as part of his “lockdown” policies. The list is here and others are available on his web site here.
This story comes after the City Communications director Riley Sweeney made remarks on the internet castigating Rep. Luanne VanWerven as a “pro-plague” instigator in a Lynden demonstration to open businesses. The article by the Fourth Corner is here.
Which in turn follows a story of the Mayor of the City of Ferndale calling the rally to save ALCOA Intalco works a “political” rally. That article is here.
Are Ferndale leaders Working hard to move tax base and manufacturing jobs away from schools and the Ferndale community to China where much of the world’s aluminum is made? You Decide.

It won’t surprise this observer a bit if these same people will be asking their local legislators for financial aid from the state to get thru COVID AND massive layoffs.
