As thousands are fired under governor’s decree, Senate Freedom Caucus calls on Jay Inslee to resign

Mass-termination event is last straw for senators, who cite Inslee’s failure of leadership

OLYMPIA – As thousands of state employees get pink slips under Washington Gov. Jay Inslee’s “get vaccinated or get fired” mandate, members of the Senate’s Freedom Caucus are calling on the governor to resign.

The mass firings Monday of state employees and others who balked at the governor’s COVID-19 vaccination order already are creating a crisis in state government, according to the senators, as state agencies struggle to provide services under an Inslee-created staff shortage. The number of terminations was not available Tuesday morning, but press accounts indicate thousands got the ax at the end of their shifts Monday.

“This mass-termination event is the straw that breaks the camel’s back,” said Sen. Doug Ericksen, R-Ferndale. “Never have we witnessed a failure of leadership in this state as we have seen under Gov. Jay Inslee. For nearly 600 days, he has used COVID emergency powers to establish autocratic rule, refusing to call the Legislature into special session, and shutting the people out.

“Inslee has done significant damage to the credibility of state government and has eroded the public’s trust. Now he is firing thousands of public employees, without regard to the harm it will cause. This effort to punish can only be seen as the willful act of a failed governor. Inslee has failed miserably. We don’t take this lightly. But the only thing that can allow our state to heal and move forward is for Jay Inslee to resign.”

Inslee has been operating under COVID emergency authority since Feb. 29, 2020, allowing him to suspend state laws and issue sweeping executive orders. His authority was extended indefinitely by the Legislature in January under a controversial measure supported by most Democrats and opposed by all Republicans. Thursday will mark the 600th day of the longest-running emergency in state history.

The result, Freedom Caucus members say, is a nightmare for the state and a challenge to the democratic principles outlined by the state constitution. They observe:

  • Ferries are operating on a reduced schedule due to staffing shortages, bus routes are being canceled, and other immediate impacts to state services are expected.
  • Public safety is threatened by the termination of law enforcement officials and workers at the state Department of Corrections.
  • The firings follow months of arbitrary decrees based on questionable or non-existent science that have forced thousands of businesses across the state to shutter for good.
  • Inslee has repeatedly refused to call the Legislature into a special session – and give the people a voice. When the Legislature met earlier this year, Inslee ordered construction of a cyclone fence around the Capitol, and stationed 600 National Guard troops to keep the public out.
  • Inslee is using his COVID powers to advance his controversial political agenda, and is purging law enforcement officials most likely to object to defunding police agencies and establishing central state government control.
  • No other state has gone to this extreme, as anyone who has ventured beyond the state’s borders can see.
  • Inslee has yet to identify the criteria under which he will declare an “all-clear” and relinquish his emergency authority – meaning no end is in sight.

“We objected on principle in January when our colleagues voted to give Inslee emergency powers for as long as he wants them,” said Sen. Jeff Wilson, R-Longview. “But I don’t think any of us realized it would come to this, and I think many in the state Legislature are having second thoughts today. Other states are requiring vaccinations, but none of them have taken it to the level of mass terminations. When one person makes all the decisions, there can be no question who is at fault.”

Other comments:

“The governor and Democratic legislators have increased health risks and jeopardized public safety, while Inslee pats himself on the back as being the only person who can save us from COVID,” said Sen. Phil Fortunato, R-Auburn.  “He has been a boon to other states seeking to reduce their staffing shortages.  Nebraska is actively recruiting our nurses, reducing our available staffed hospital beds.  Orange County in Florida is targeting King County and Seattle police who are ‘looking to relocate due to the vaccine mandate’. While other states have issued guidance and are dealing with the problems COVID has created, it seems COVID is a crisis only in Washington, much of it created by Inslee’s heavy-handed actions.”

“Inslee isn’t responding to a crisis,” said Sen. Jim McCune, R-Graham. “He’s creating one. He sees this as a golden opportunity to sweep out public employees and others who object to his high-handed rule. And he doesn’t care what a mess he makes in the process. There are many who have serious and well-founded objections to vaccination, and they could have been accommodated as they have been in other states. This is a disgrace. State employees don’t deserve pink slips. The governor does.”

“It’s heartbreaking,” said Sen. Mike Padden, R-Spokane Valley. “These callous decisions by the governor are having a devastating impact on working families. There are dedicated public servants who have worked for state government who will lose their ability to pay their mortgage or provide food for their family. Others are just a few years or months away from vesting in their retirement plans. Some have received medical advice from their personal doctors that they must now ignore in order to keep a job they love. This is wrong.”

So little concern for public employees by WA governor. WA is said to have the strictest mandate in the nation. No recognition of natural immunity, little regard for medical and religious exemptions. Callous disregard for so many employees, residents, and their families. Autocratic rule instead of representative government in WA state now.

How many of those pushed out of their jobs by Governor Inslee’s proclamation had natural immunity? 81 Research Studies Confirm Natural Immunity to COVID ‘Equal’ or ‘Superior’ to Vaccine Immunity • Children’s Health Defense (childrenshealthdefense.org)

In this letter to the CCTODAY editor, I noted that WA state law allows for proof of immunity for daycare/K-12 students as evidenced by a lab test, and also for adults. Yet COVID lab tests such as PCR, antibody, or T-Cell tests are not recognized? So many healthcare and frontline workers got COVID in the line of duty, and appear to have excellent immunity. Why is Governor Inslee firing them?

What is wrong w mandates. Is the tyranny it imposes on religious freedom, privacy and legitimate health concerns that prohibit taking the vaccine. Inslee isn’t honoring religious or medical. exemptions. Makes him a tyrant. Who know w us having 127 less WSP will be less safe on our roads. Also this causes a shortage of nurses. How is this policy smart?

Hello Joshua, first of all I am sorry to hear of the family death(s) you describe. However, I never used the word ‘FAKE’, I said the issue was a farce. The farce being the irrational way this has been handled. I was a school kid in during the Polio Pandemic of the 50’s. People were dying, or if they were lucky they survived but were crippled for life. While all this was going on we went to school, the teachers were at school and our parents went to work. We were aware of the dangers but we were allowed the privilege of carrying the burden of responsibility upon our own shoulders. We were not subject to mandates.
Over the past 18 months I have lost 5 dear friends (NOT to Covid). They died lonely and confused in mandated isolation. So maybe we should tell them how much they benefited from our governor’s actions?

I feel vaccinated people can also carry covid virus and its still doesn’t protect 100% and has several side effects, its just they may/maynot be in serious condition which means they can a danger to public too if safe “covid precauctions are not taken” properly which is applicable to anyone. I believe they should atleast do covid vaccine mandate OR get tested Covid negative just like when you fly in airplanes.

I am really disappointed in my Democrat Delegation for going along with this nonsense but it isn’t surprising since Democrats as a whole have sought to limit The People from full participation in our government. As I look backwards at the 42 years I have lived in Worshington State, I remind myself there have been a lot of “emergencies” passed by the Democrat Legislators designed to remove our voice from contesting their measures. Democrats have raised our taxes to support the bloated state government they have built year after year. Even though it hurts the way they have done it, could the silver lining in their stupidity be what Conservatives have sought for years in a smaller government footprint? Inslee’s gamble is going to backfire in a spectacular way I predict. I call on the democrats to grow a pair and exercise some self control and reign in the dictator.

I am a 68 year old “terminated” employee. I have a six-month medical exemption because the current vaccines could harm me. Ecology will not accommodate me by allowing me to telework as I have for months. I can’t use my almost 1,000 hours of sick leave or even donate to others. All employees should be aware that if you have a medical issue, this sets a precedent for firing you. I’m struggling to support my family, figure retirement, persuade unemployment to help me, get health insurance. This is a devastating, life changing situation. Where is the Governor’s or Ecology’s support for employees?

If you believe the lies about the effectiveness of the vaccines, then why are you wearing a mask and why are you so AFRAID of unvaccinated people?? If masks are so effective, then why do you need to be vaccinated? If vaccines are so effective, then why have more people in the USA so far in 2021 of COVID than in all of 2020??? Stop following Inslee deadly totalitarian rule!!

If vaccines are so effective, then why have more people died in the USA so far in 2021 from COVID than in all of 2020?? If vaccines are so effective, then why do vaccinated people need to wear masks? If masks are so effective then why get vaccinated? Do not trust a governor who refuses to include natural immunity in the social health conversation.
Signs over our highways say “End the pandemic, get vaccinated”. This is a lie. Democrats need this pandemic for control and illegal use of power!
