OUR MISSION

Our Mission is to work together with Citizens and Community Leaders to foster responsible and smart economic growth. Growth that supports living-wage jobs. Growth that promotes the Arts & Humanities. Growth that sustains our connections with our rural lifestyle and natural environment.

In order to complete our Mission, RG * NEW is committed and dedicated to stopping the proposed Newport silicon metal smelter. An urban, industrial giant that will destroy our rural lifestyle and our rural community. It will not only destroy our rural area, but it will put our health, environment, air and water quality, wild and domestic animals, plus all flora and fauna at risk due to the regulated and unregulated toxic emissions and other sources of pollution.

Upcoming Events

When did it become ok for a massive industrial complex to entrench itself in the middle of rural residential properties and position itself to be built perilously close to incorporated and unincorporated towns, homes, schools, a hospital, recreational areas, waters sources without one opportunity for the citizens to say, “No! Not in my neighborhood!”

Phyllis Kardos • Co-Chair

ECONOMIC GROWTH

Responsible economic growth can help us achieve our goals for smart. growth while maintaining our distinctive rural character.

ARTS & HUMANITIES

The arts and humanities can shape the future or our rural communities creating a shared sense of belonging and ultimately strengthening our social, cultural and economic vibrancy.

FAIR LAWMAKING

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press, or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

VOLUNTEERISM

The bottom line is volunteering makes a difference in our community and in ourselves. It builds community and focuses on issues that are of a common concern to all of us. Volunteering creates deeper connections with other people and strengthens our character and resolve.

Help us stop the Newport smelter!

“Misinformation, secrecy, and impropriety of land sales and project funds handling are being challenged by citizen groups (CANNS, RG*NEW), and the Kalispel Tribe.  Smelter emissions will cause health problems and damaging acid rain.  Our health, welfare, and environment (including our endangered Selkirk Caribou) are in peril.  Will this exploitive, polluting, undemocratic project be Governor Inslee’s legacy?” J. Endres
