Rep. Tom Campbell held a Town Hall Meeting in Yelm on April 29th with this writer in the audience hearing him to say that the city council approved Wal-Mart using incorrect traffic numbers and are
permitting every project leading to the creation of major issues for traffic, water and sewage. This man gave a frank assessment about Yelm's Wal-Mart approval that drew a heated response from Mayor Pro-tem Bob Isom. Rep. Campbell told Mr. Isom this was his meeting, enough of an argument and would give him his due at the end. This did not arise again.
Mr. Campbell clearly stated we must get involved in our local government and tell them what we want - that they are here to serve their constituents, not the other way around. He encouraged us to keep speaking out on issues
of importance to us and learn the processes to enact change and challenge the status quo.
Saturday, May 13 from 8-11am marks the City of Yelm's annual Spring Clean.

their Spring Trash free to Yelm City Park for disposal. Permit required. If you did not
receive yours, call Yelm City Hall.458-3244.
Just 5 days after my Yelm Community blog went public it has become the talk of the town, from a full editorial column in the local newspaper by the publisher and managing editor to a public remark by the mayor pro-tem in the Yelm City Council study session of April 27th about a comment recorded on the blog by a reader.
Wonderful that this blog is creating such discourse!
