Coastal Community Action Program to present at Business Forum Lunch
This month’s Business Forum Lunch, hosted by Greater Grays Harbor Inc., will take place on March 26 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Rotary Log Pavilion in Aberdeen. Coastal Community Action Program (CCAP) will provide an update on its program activities and recovery efforts.
CCAP has overcome the heartbreaking obstacle of losing their facility in last year’s Armory Building fire. Since then, this non-profit organization has been working diligently to relocate into a new location in downtown Aberdeen while simultaneously rebuilding and improving the services that they offer to the Grays Harbor community.
At the March Business Forum Lunch, attendees will hear directly from the CEO of CCAP, Craig Dublanko.
“CCAP has come a long way since the devastating fire last year,” said Dru Garson, CEO at GGHI. “We’re thrilled to see how much progress they’ve made and are eager to hear more about their current programs and activities at this month’s luncheon.”
The cost of the event is $20 for GGHI members and $30 for non-members. Lunch is included and will be catered by Aloha Alabama. Please call (360) 532-7888 to reserve your seat or email Candie Gleason at email@example.com.

Fox News hires former DNC chairwoman Donna Brazile as a contributor
Fox News, which has been accused by critics of having a cozy relationship with the Trump White House, has hired longtime Democratic strategist Donna Brazile as an on-air contributor.
Brazile will appear across all Fox News programs in daytime and prime time, the network announced Monday. She has appeared on the conservative-leaning network in the past as a guest.
Brazile, who served as interim head of the Democratic National Committee in 2016 and campaign manager for Al Gore’s 2000 presidential campaign, immediately becomes the highest-profile Democratic talking head on Fox News.
According to a person familiar with the matter, Brazile’s hiring has been in the works for some time. Brazile said in a statement that she is taking on the role on a network that has been demonized by the Democratic Party because she wants to promote more civil discourse in the politically polarized landscape.
“I know I’m going to get criticized from my friends in the progressive movement for being on Fox News,” Brazile said. “My response is that, if we’ve learned anything from the 2016 election, it is that we can’t have a country where we don’t talk to those who disagree with our political views. There’s an audience on Fox News that doesn’t hear enough from Democrats. We have to engage that audience and show Americans of every stripe what we stand for rather than retreat into our ‘safe spaces’ where we simply agree with each other.”
In her role at Fox News, Brazile will appear strictly as a Democratic commentator and will not be involved in the planning of the network’s political debate or town hall coverage during the 2020 presidential campaign.
