On Monday, July 11 at 6:00 p.m., the Lewis County Republican Party gathered at the Chehalis Eagles regarding Chairman Brandon Svenson and a possible vote to recall him. Svenson was a no show, not informing the board he would not be attending. Since Chairman Svenson was not at the meeting, a vote to recall him could not take place per their bylaws.
On Monday evening, the LCRP Executive Board had decided to close the meeting to the public due to several past outbursts by the supporters of Chairman Svenson. The board allowed the PCOs, vote counters and the media in the voting room. Eventually, the board decided to allow the public in with the understanding that no outburst would be allowed.
Napavine Funtime Festival went off without a hitch. The coronation crowned a new Queen, Ms. Keely and the parade went on without a problem. Napavine was filled with a large crowd as this year.

Ballots will be mailed this week and there are several campaigns that will affect us in the Congressional District and also in our local races for Precinct Committee Officers (PCOs).
Typically, as the Lewis County News, we have never written so close to a primary, but felt this primary held too much importance for our area. Joe Kent who is running for Congress has made several statements that are of great concern for any Republican or citizens of this great county.
Joe Kent moved to Washington State to run for Congress, he had been living in DC and Oregon, but decided to move to run for Congress. Kent voted in Oregon as a democrat in the 2020 Primary election. Kent has gone on the record to state that if he does not win the primary, "I will break the republican party." Kent then stated during a forum that he would run a "write-in'' two weeks ago, the Lewis County News has obtained a copy of the video and has placed it on their Facebook page. This is someone who is willing to win at all costs, even if it means tearing everything and everyone down along the way. This is not who we want to have as a representative for our 3rd Congressional District!
