Letter to the Editor: We Must Support January 6 House Select Committee


My name is Shawn Bates and I have lived in Chehalis since 2004.

In America, voters should have the final say. But Trump and far-right extremists engaged in a criminal conspiracy by helping to promote and pay for election sabotage efforts that culminated in the deadly attack on our country on Jan. 6.

The January 6 House Select Committee’s ongoing public hearings are presenting the facts about this attack and its lead up. The committee’s investigation has been nonpartisan and factual.

We must support the January 6 Committee in investigating and holding accountable everyone involved in this crime — to both ensure it never happens again and make sure that our elected leaders respect the will of the people

This includes making sure everyone’s vote is counted by volunteering as an Election Protection volunteer.

Register to volunteer for Election Protection to make sure we protect the results of the 2022 election at cmnca.us/jan6ep.
