Vote “Yes” on Proposition 1 in November

Vote YES on Proposition 1 in November, to support public power in Thurston County.

Our volunteers worked hard to gather enough signatures to get Public Power on the ballot in November 2012. It will be listed as Proposition 1 — please get to the voting booth and vote YES on Prop. 1.

Talk with people about the benefits of public power

We need you to talk to your friends and neighbors about public power and ask them to talk with their friends and neighbors. We will soon have single-sheet pages you can download and print to help you in your conversations. Puget Sound Energy and their “astroturf” organization is spreading lies and misinformation trying to convince people to vote against their own best interest.

Public Power means you and I, we, will own the monopoly. It’s time for the people of Thurston County to take control of the natural monopoly that is our electrical infrastructure. When we own it, it will be managed and run by people we elect and who will give us a more reliable system.

Contact local officials and let them know you support public power

Contact city and county officials and let them know that you support public power. Check out our list of local government contacts here.

Donate money or material support

We also need donations — we are going to be competing with at least $500,000 of corporate propaganda from PSE. Any amount, regardless of size helps. Just click on the “Donate” button below:
