Congressman Dicks on Video

August 5th, 2008 by Steven Gardner

The main news peg from our meeting Tuesday morning with U.S. Rep. Norm Dicks, D-Belfair, was his assertion that the Suquamish Tribe is probably not going to bend easily to pressure to OK the boardwalk Bremerton wants. Here’s the story.

Included with the story is a short video in which Dicks defends the tunnel. That question is part of the four questions on the video I’ll include here.

The video also proves that there is a reason I went into print reporting instead of broadcasting.

As I mentioned in another post, the first question has me correctly saying “Senator Obama” instead of “President Obama,” but I said “president” first. What you hear is me correcting myself and laughing about it.

    Why doesn’t KS have blogs on national issues?

  2. Jake Metcalf Says:

    Telecom industry corporate lobbyists, The American Civil Liberties Union and the Electric Frontier Foundation don’t believe that they had immunity from breaking the laws when they were accomplices in helping thugs illegally spy on Americans. If the retroactive wiretapping legalization bill was unnecessary then why did congress shove it through? I am just calling a spade a spade.

    The Kitsap Sun is a local newspaper and is focused on local Kitsap issues. They are not USA Today.

  3. Charlie Burrow Says:

    Norm says he can’t debate with primary opponents “because we’re back in session,” but Congress has adjourned until Sept. 5.
