‘Bo Snerdley’ is guest speaker at Lincoln Lunch

Posted

James Golden, known to millions of radio listeners of the Rush Limbaugh Show as “Bo Snerdley,” will be the featured speaker for the Jefferson County GOP’s Lincoln Day Lunch.

The annual gathering is planned for Saturday, Aug. 1 at the Elks Lodge in Port Townsend.

Golden has been Limbaugh’s confidant and executive producer for more than
20 years. In addition to previously hosting his own radio program on WABC/New York, Golden has served as vice president of programming for WWRL/New York and has been the featured guest and speaker at many conservative events around the country. 

Golden, who was born in Queens, New York, is the founder of New Journey PAC (www.newjourneypac.org ), which supports Black conservatives across the nation. Organizers of the Lincoln Day event said Golden has “pushed the boundaries of success as a radio pundit and online commentator through his fearless critiques of American liberalism.”

The event was scheduled earlier this year but was pushed back due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Tickets for the lunch can now be purchased at www.jeffgop.com, and a meal will be provided along with a no-host cash bar. In addition, the GOP will be holding its annual silent auction. Doors open at 11 a.m. The Elks Lodge is located at 555 Otto St., Port Townsend.

Under the Governors July 20 order phase 2 continues to limit gatherings to 5 people. I don’t think there is any chance that we will move to phase 3 by August 1. Even if that happened the newly added order limits phase 3 gatherings to 10 people rather than 50 people. I sure hope the Republican Party in Jefferson County has an alternate plan. Unless the virus disappears before the end of the month this gathering will violate gathering limits no matter which phase we are in. Non essential travel is still prohibited as far as I can gather.

The more dangerous risk to residents is the planned Aug1 opening of Fort Worden to guest tourism. The county commissioners all decided to strongly discourage tourism. It is a shame that tourism revenues are more important than our health and lives. 33% of us are at high risk due to age and if you take into account the many comorbid conditions of so many Americans due to obesity and diabetes and heart disease fully half of our population is at high risk. People here are more likely to die from acquiring this viral infection than any other community in the state or nation.

It is sad that we have to rely on Governor Inslee to save us from ourselves! Shouldn’t all of our public bodies In Jefferson County recognize the much higher risk we have here. The statewide picture and phases are one size fits all and the number of high risk residents we have here isn’t reflected in any other county in Washington. We need an extra layer of protection and that needs to be provided by our local public bodies no matter what other counties do or what phase the state allows us to move into. The CDC recently issued a report that concluded that that the wave of infections across the southern states was caused by tourists coming from places where there was a high infection rate that is not under control.

Where will Fort Worden guests be coming from beginning August 1. I hope that the board members will take turns personally greeting the guests that are so important to them and their revenues. That way they would be sharing with their staff the risks caused by their determination to open. They stated that they feared the community would lose confidence in them if they didn’t proceed witH tourism plans. Which community would that be?
