You can’t be an informed voter if your chief source of information is the plethora of attack ads on Washington airwaves – especially when there’s no clue who’s really funding them. The League of Women Voters of Washington says in the absence of campaign disclosure rules, voters are on their own to seek unbiased sources of information.

Kilmer Says More Outreach Needed

Says public has a right to know more about the Navy war games planned for the West End

Congressman Derek Kilmer is reacting to the admission by the Navy that public notice was absent in Forks – for the Pacific NW Electronic Warfare Range project – which would mark the first Navy training using trucks containing electromagnetic radiation equipment.

Forks 1490 contacted Kilmer requesting an interview on the subject.  Instead, Kilmer issued this statement on Sunday.

The Navy wants to use 15 sites in Western Washington, including 3 within 10 miles of Forks in the ONF.

The comment period on the plan to the Forest Service has been extended through the end of the month in Clallam County – but is already closed in Gray’s Harbor County – where so few people were told of the proposed war exercises there were no comments received whatsoever.
