Meet WA State Supreme Court Justice Raquel Montoya-Lewis

Article in Seattle Met.

“”WHEN RAQUEL MONTOYA-LEWIS walks the halls of Olympia’s Temple of Justice, intimidation fairly radiates from its marble pillars—and from the long line of supreme court justice portraits. “There are zero who look like me,” says the five-foot, onetime law professor, appointed in December to the state’s highest court. This year, its nine justices will rule on drug sentences and potato farm disputes, sexual assault exams and, inevitably and repeatedly, the constitutionality of car tabs; Montoya-Lewis will run to retain her seat in November. As only the second Native American state supreme court justice in the country, she wields insight from her Pueblo of Isleta tribe and her mother’s Jewish roots, from tribal courts and a stint on Whatcom County Superior Court. That collected wisdom boils down to a simple directive tattooed on her forearm, lettered around an eagle feather and gavel: “Be kind. Do justice.” –AW “”

The party is organizing for home work. Calling from your home to GOTV.

There are vids for training and several upcoming days scheduled for Phone banking.

I must do something to help make sure tRump is NOT re-elected. I must.

I won a prize from the Greenwood car show n cruise

A fire extinguisher! I assume for a vehicle.
Just got the call.

Saturday Sarge (my Hummer H3) and I participated in the cruise and food drive. The man that called said that we brought in over 400lbs of food and the raffle did well too. I bought two $5 chances. Woot!

Was a great cruise with stops and then people had a chance to socially distance/ mask mingle a bit and talk cars.

Imma a Chevy girl and there were plenty of beauties! Lots of mustangs too. Many international brands of all classes and even two hydro boats on trailers.

I don’t have a fire extinguisher in Sarge so will have to make room among the emerg gear.

Peace! And cars!

Sitting at a bar...

On the tiny split patio. Totally by myself.
I am in NW Seattle in the Phinney neighborhood. On the corner is a tiny building. Three things on the sign.

But the best part is the (now vintage) poster of the HOPE Obama poster. It’s faded but lovely. O. M. G.

I love sitting here and then suddenly looking over and seeing the man of the century!
My man.

Barack Obama

Ha! Don’t remember hearing this before but I have been on Lake Shore Drive a time or two.

This is THE BOMB. I chose the live version. Have fun!

Edit to add: watching the concert. This was the third song in the set. A new one he said.
