Whatcom County Executive Jack Louws will be the featured speaker at the annual general meeting of the Point Roberts Registered Voters’ Association Thursday, April 9.
“We did this the year before in a town hall format and it was very well received,” said association president Joel Lantz. “We have invited him to come up and discuss any issues that come up as important to the community. This is something we are planning to do every year to get some face time with the county executive.”
The meeting will start at 7 p.m. at the Gulf Road community center. Following the open forum with Louws the group will elect board members, with the positions of two veteran board members coming vacant: Ruby White and Connie North. White was one of the founders of the association. “Her term is up and I guess she’s served her time!” Lantz said.
Lantz added association members would also announce details of a golf tournament scheduled for July 25 as a fundraiser. The association hopes to make it an annual event as a community fundraiser and this year the beneficiary will be the Cross Border Coalition to Stop the Towers legal defense fund.
