This is a more-or-less weekly message I send to the President and to my Legislators. The following is the version of it I sent to Governor Inslee.

This is to notify you of a message I have just sent to the President and members of Congress. Since this concerns the Trident Missile Base in our State of Washington, I believe this ought to be of concern to the State's Governor also.

Scrap Trident, Ban All Nuclear Weapons! There are no better words than these I am quoting directly from a letter by Dr. Dave Hall:
'Now is the time to STOP the re-build of the first-strike Trident nuclear weapons fleet, and instead to model intolerance for ALL weapons of mass destruction, expand our investments in diplomacy and foreign assistance, support truly democratic institutions worldwide, and live by treaties we have signed that outlaw weapons of mass destruction for the very reason that they cause indiscriminate calamity for innocents and destroy ecosystems essential to life. We owe it to our grandchildren to act NOW.'
And may I remind you, Mr. President, of your OWN words spoken in Prague: That the US must "take concrete steps towards a world without nuclear weapons... put an end to Cold War thinking... reduce the role of nuclear weapons in our national security strategy... begin the work of reducing our arsenal." The time to act on all these noble words, is NOW! We the citizens of the US want a nuclear-free world; the population of the entire WORLD wants a nuclear-free world. Greedy profit-grabbing military contractors should NOT be setting US foreign policy; that is the ONLY reason for buying into billion-dollar archaic, obsolete, useless and dangerous Trident Nuclear Missile systems!

Governor Inslee, please do what you can to push back against dangerous Cold War thinking, and push FOR better ways to spend money and provide jobs, for instance in Social Services needed by so many in our State!
