Mike Steele.     Sworn into office in 2017, Mike Steele represents the 12th Legislative District. It is the largest geographic district in the state. It includes all of Chelan County, all of Douglas County, part of Grant County and part of Okanogan County. His passion for economic vitality, sustainable job growth and career and technical education are the foundations of his legislative work.
Mike is a lifelong resident of the Lake Chelan Valley. He graduated from Manson High School and went on to receive degrees in Business Administration and Political Science from Pacific Lutheran University. He has long been devoted to public service. Upon graduation from college, Mike served the people of the Pacific Northwest in the White House Office of Political Affairs representing the Northwest Region under President George W. Bush.
Other positions.  Republican House Caucus for Leadership during the 2006 legislative session and interim, Executive Director of the Lake Chelan Chamber of Commerce for the past ten years.  Earlier, he first held elected office as a member of the Chelan City Council, the youngest President ever elected to the Lake Chelan Rotary Club, a trustee for the Association of Washington Business, a trustee for the North Central Washington Community Foundation and past chair of the Washington Chamber of Commerce Executives. He is the incoming President for the Lake Chelan Community Hospital Foundation.

Valerie Serratt.  I’m proud to be a Washington state native. I earned a B.A. from the American University of Paris, and pursued postgraduate studies at the University of Alaska, Fairbanks and Central Washington University. I’ve had a 17-year teaching career in Alaska, southern California, and Washington state. I’ve lived in the 12th LD for ten years—five years in Wenatchee and five in the Methow Valley. I’m currently a secondary public school teacher in Brewster, and my husband and I live near Twisp where we enjoy cycling, volunteering, gardening, and raising chickens.

Keith Goehner.   "I have been married to Lisa for 44 years.  We have 3 children and 6 grandchildren.

Education:  Peshastin-Dryden High School, Wenatchee Valley College, Seattle Pacific University
Background:  I am a life long resident of the Dryden area with the exception of my time as an elementary school teacher right out of college.  After returning to the family farm, I served on the Peshastin-Dryden School Board and became active in our church, community and school activities.  I have served on pear industry boards and committees, the Farm Services Agency Committee, Confluence Hospital Foundation Board, Cascade Education Foundation, Republican Party positions, Rotary International, and numerous other organizations.  I have been a Chelan County Commissioner for the past 16 years."
Dr. Ann Diamond.  Ann Diamond first came to Washington in her twenties to lead a volunteer trail crew on Mt. Rainier. The work and wilderness drew her in, but the rural communities held her. These small, proud, independent communities are where a handshake is one’s word, and neighbors help each other regardless of their differences. Ann learned there is no anonymity in a small town: everyone knows your business. One has to demonstrate patience and effectively bridge differences; the slow store clerk may also be the helpful truck driver who pulls you out from a snow bank. Ann will use small town civility, and practical judgment honed from running a successful rural medical clinic, to serve the 12th Legislative District.
Ann earned her Bachelor’s Degree at Harvard University, and then moved to New Mexico to work as an Emergency Medical Technician. In the 1980’s, she moved to San Francisco to earn her MD at the University of California. While working on the AIDS ward of San Francisco General Hospital and volunteering at La Clinica de la Raza in Oakland, Dr. Ann listened.....

    WEEK IN REVIEW, October 4 - Candidate Forum #1      
Wenatchee World publisher Jeff Ackerman moderated an informative candidate forum, featuring two well-qualified men running for Chelan County Commissioner, Position 2.  The candidates, Bob Bugert and Shon Smith, are competing to replace District 2 Commissioner Keith Goehner, R-Dryden. District 2 extends from the Wenatchee foothills to Lake Wenatchee.  Both had reasoned and compelling stories about themselves and their qualifications and hopes and plans for the county.  See story in The Wenatchee World, October 5.  President Pete presented each with a certificate of donation to PolioPlus in their names, and proclaimed how fortunate we are to have this dilemma of two excellent candidates.

    Just so ‘ya know…  Community Outreach in action    
With our January Rotary Auction just around the corner, I read with pleasure the editorial by Kelli Scott in Friday’s Wenatchee World. She featured the accomplishments of Foothills Robotics Team as a whole and then specifically the all-girls robotics team, called Team FBI (Female Bots Intelligence.)  Wenatchee Rotary financially supported these young people as they took home top honors during Washington State competitions and had four teams qualify to complete in the world championships
in Tennessee.
Wenatchee Rotary is committed to helping our youth succeed wherever and whenever possible. This support translates into not only our time and talents, but also our financial support. These funds will come from our Rotary “Building Communities” auction on January 26, 2019. Make a commitment to make this auction our best ever!
Joe St. Jean.  (#11 in series) 
End Polio Now/Club 60:  
Our ambitious goal has been set by President Pete at $10,000 ($192 per week!).
We continue our 10-year relationship with the Gates Foundation; since 2013, they have matched each dollar with $2 toward polio eradication.
Donations by club members on Oct. 04 = $52.87 thus bringing our total $622 or $1866 with the Gates match.  This equates to 3116 lives saved. Read about World Polio Day, October 24
