Protestors have notified me they plan to be outside today’s staff meeting with Washington State Public Lands Commissioner, Hilary Franz. She has been traveling across the state to address morale. After announcing last year that less than 10 people “chose” to leave DNR due to the vaccine, accommodations are being denied and my sources say the # is closer to between 150-200. Despite no mandate for federal wildland firefighters, state firefighters under Franz must be vaccinated, even thorough they often work together. Meanwhile, Franz recently tested positive for COVID.
