Washington DC Trip 2012 - Introduction
Welcome to our first Annual KHTS AM-1220 Washington DC Trip! Thank you for joining us. KHTS, along with a select group of Santa Clarita representatives, traveled to the nation’s Capital from Tuesday, May 15, to Thursday, May 17, in an effort to have an impact on today’s decision makers. Many thanks goes out to The Gas Company for helping sponsor the trip as well as Congressman Buck McKeon, his staff, and the Santa Clarita Chamber of Commerce for assisting with scheduling, guidance, and support.
KHTS has been leading road trips to Sacramento for the past seven years to advocate for critical issues facing the Santa Clarita Valley. Our trips have made a significant impact over the years and it is our hope to build that same advocacy tradition on our annual Washington DC trip.
We invited a diverse group of individuals representing the Santa Clarita Valley – all of who can be found in the Participants page. We have also documented our trip on the KHTS website in this special Washington DC Trip portal section, much like that of our Sacramento Trip.
Our intent is to show our government officials that we as a community are unified in our concerns and are willing to commit our time and energy to share them.
KHTS AM-1220 radio also broadcasted during the trip, so we invite you to listen to the interviews as well as the feedback shared by our participants.
As we share our experiences over the KHTS AM-1220 airwaves, on our KHTS AM-1220 website, and in our local newspapers and magazines, we hope that you will share your insights with your friends and family over the next few months.
Overall, our trip was rewarding, educational, and most importantly, FUN! Please feel free to read stories about this year’s trip as well as accounts of our previous Sacramento Road Trips, which can be found in our archives.
Again, thank you for joining us. Together, we can make a difference.
