Searching For Words That Unite Us
Two days before last year's presidential election, Frank Luntz walked away from a CBS 60 Minutes focus group leaving people uncontrollably screaming at one another.  He couldn't stop it.  Nobody could.
America's political frustration has boiled far beyond anyone's ability to listen and find common ground. Our country's polarization now is to the point where people are shooting one another.
Luntz is the best in the business. He is a pioneer in the field of communications and public opinion research.  While at Association of Washington Business (AWB), we hired Luntz to help us find the words, phrases and tones which unified people. 


Washington, D.C. - Rep. Dan Newhouse (R-WA) was honored with the American Conservative Union Foundation's Award for Conservative Achievement for his commitment to America's foundational principles and the U.S. Constitution. Rep. Newhouse was recognized for American Conservative Union's Congressional rating of 83% for his 2016 voting record.

Prosser City Council
Prosser City Council met in its regular meeting June 13 to consider certain elements of City business as conducted by Mayor, Randy Taylor.  Cathy Aubrey spoke addressing the City Council about the trees on 7th Avenue near the Episcopal Church posing a potential hazard to vehicles or pedestrians. Mayor Taylor stated that the City will consider making that cleanup part of the 7th Street improvement plan and check into an immediate answer to her concern.
Councilman, Bob Elder reported joining Police Officer Ed Blackburn on routine patrol for the afternoon and found the experience very informative and encouraged the other council members to do so also. Councilman, Steve Becken, confirmed Elder's experience, cautioned that IRS scammers are still harassing Prosser Citizens and mentioned that City travel expenditures outside of Washington State, in his opinion, should first be approved by City Council prior to their completion and that the participant report back to City Council their trip results and the benefit to the City.
