Dog FrustrationIn the November 10, 2014 Lazy C: CRC lingers in long-range plans

Ask yourself, why didn’t they admit any of this BEFORE the election where they pushed for a transformation in county government?

This blog was among the few that shined light on the Home Rule Charter effort being in part to resurrect the comatose CRC light rail project. While others focused on claims of diluting the Commissioners to councilors and gerrymandering of districts in hopes of benefiting the left, this blog focused on motives of the effort.

In part, that effort was to undo the 2012 election to oust two conservative Commissioners that stood in the way of the CRC light rail project at the behest of the citizens of Clark County. It grew out of an effort to recall them that was unwarranted.

For Election Results

by lewwaters

I VotedI won’t be posting on results this evening as I will be away from my computer most of the evening. But, links below are being provided where you can read the results of local and state races as they are released. Results should be released after 8 pm.

For local results: http://results.vote.wa.gov/results/current/clark/

State and Congressional results: http://results.vote.wa.gov/results/current/

However the elections go this evening, we better begin remembering we are all Americans and ignore the efforts of bitter division separating us. We will never agree on everything nor should we. But the bitter battles and “my way or the highway” mentality seen far too long needs to come to a screeching halt, if we are to survive.

Good luck to all.

Two More Reasons Not To Vote for Craig Pridemore

by lewwaters

Alycia Nipp and Anna Svidersky.

Many may not remember or may be unaware, but in early 2009, a 13-year old girl was brutally stabbed to death by a level III repeat sex offender in Hazel Dell. Her name was Alycia Nipp.

The murder happened just a few blocks from my home and being a father myself of daughters, it hit close to home.

I shot off correspondence to every state official from Clark County demanding stricter sentencing and handling of these repeat offenders.

When Hate Drives the Agenda

by lewwaters

A prime example of those that would radically transform the Government of Clark County Washington because they despise one Commissioner.

Over a personal facebook page? Seriously?

Monica Stonier Sort Of Addresses Common Core

by lewwaters

From a March 26, 2014 Tele Town Hall held by Democrat 17th District Representative Monica Stonier (Washington State), addressing a question on Common Core. Well, sort of.

Is this the “Common Sense” she boasts of?

Shane Train Gets Desperate

by lewwaters

Shane Gardner, Madore Endorses AtkinsIs the Shane Train really so desperate that one of Gardner’s supporters ordered up a bunch of these signs then sets them up around town at Atkins signs and sets up a phony David Madore’s Friends page??

Do you want a Sheriff that is silent over such dirty, underhanded tactics from his supporters?

If he allows such dirty behavior now, how much dirty behavior will he ignore as Sheriff?

Atkins is also endorsed by Mayor Tim Leavitt, former Mayor Royce Pollard, and Tony Golik. It is said that the signs were purchased by a young Democrat named Pond that also set up the phony facebook page, David Madore’s Friends.

UPDATE: I am now informed that Pond has been placing these signs at other Republican candidates signs as well as Vote No on the Charter signs.

Why Vote for Jeanne Stewart Over Craig Pridemore?

by lewwaters

Pridemore ScowlIt is widely known and acknowledged that during her entire 12 years on the Vancouver City Council, Ms. Stewart sided with citizens over special interests and was her own person, not following anybody’s lead or pressures from downtown special interests.

On the other hand we have Craig Pridemore jumping from office to office, consistently following party line and obediently obeying downtown special interests.

Here are the highlights of Pridemore’s career. Pridemore has voted for, or spoke in favor of (see attached files for details here and here):

Stunning Admission from Charter Yes!

by lewwaters

As this blog and others have been saying, the Home Rule Charter has absolutely nothing to do with any so-called “Good Governance,” but is wholly about Commissioner Madore, now admitted to in Charter Yes latest ad

It is ludicrous to want to change government every time someone wins an election you do not like. We would never have any sort of government.

You can save Clark County from this Democrat power grab by voting NO on the Home Rule Charter

Kimsey’s Dishonest Sleight of Hand on Home Rule Charter.

by lewwaters

Greg KimseyClark County Auditor Greg Kimsey is well known to be a staunch supporter of this Home Rule Charter nonsense born out of the effort to recall County Commissioners Mielke and Madore over the hiring of Don Benton.

I have respected Greg for many years, even when I disagreed with him. But his words left on Madore’s facebook page leave me questioning is he is even due that respect.

In a post on the 2014 Voters Pamphlet having an additional two pages promoting the charter, when there is not an equal 2 pages provided for those opposing the charter, Kimsey said;

Mayor Leavitt, “Gutless & Spineless?”

by lewwaters

Leavitt 5The Lazy C was sure to boast of Mayor Tim ‘the Liar’ Leavitt boycotting the recent Keynote speech Lt. Gen. Boykin, cowering from complaints by pro-Muslim group CAIR.

It turns out that the event ended up selling out after Levitt’s cowardly boycott, joined in by fellow Vancouver City Council Members, Larry J. Smith (Colonel, ret, US Army Ranger) and Anne McEnerny Ogle. Video of the General’s speech can be seen here.

General Boykin, ever the gentleman and appreciative of Leavitt’s avoiding the speech and possibly distracting him, thanked him and CAIR both very publicly on his facebook page this evening.

Jerry Boykin (US Army ret.) at the 13th Annual Clark County Mayors and Civic Leaders Prayer Breakfast in Vancouver, Washington, Oct. 17, 2014 and boycotted by Mayor Tim ‘the Liar’ Leavitt and Vancouver City Council Members, Larry J.
