The 9-11 Commission was the subject of Senator Slade Gorton’s address to the Lakewood Republic Women’s Club meeting Saturday night at Tacoma Country & Golf Club. He explained how the committee worked through the investigation and discussed the recommendations that were made to the President and Congress.
Sen. Gorton said that while the committee has officially gone out of business, members have continued to meet and encourage adoption of the committee’s recommendations. Unfortunately, he noted, most of the actions that were proposed have not been fully implemented.
Prior to the presentation by Sen. Gorton a silent auction was held as a fundraiser.
The Lakewood Republican Women’s Club has been serving the community for 34 years having been formed in 1971.
