Will Lefty’s One Man ‘Putsch’ Backfire?

by lewwaters

Brancaccio GoebbelsI can only imagine the disappointment felt by Lazy C editor, ol Lefty Lou Brancaccio as a major terrorist attack in Paris France last week pushed his weekly rant against County Councilor David Madore back one week.

Sorry Lou, but there really are things more important than your personal vendetta.

Be that as it may, ol Lefty postponed his weekly rant, the 90th Press Talk editorial denigrating Madore to today to pile on a matter from nearly a month ago that had Lou and the rest down at the Lazy C all charged up on the eve of the Nov. 3 election, an email sent by Madore to County Manager Mark McCauley that left Mark feeling insecure in his position as one of the ‘reporters’ writing was seen throughout the day feeding rumors to a facebook group set up after hopes of a recall fell flat.

Election Hangovers & Gloating

by lewwaters

I VotedWell, we made it through to Wednesday and it’s all over for some candidates while some others remain to be sorted out as ballots continue trickling in and being counted.

In all, I have no complaints on this election, save I was hoping to see Maria Salazar shake things up a bit in Ridgefield and breakup that good old boy club atmosphere out there. Sadly her race went to the incumbent, but Maria ran a good race, facing a whisper campaign of unsavory gossip about her.

The most watched race, Clark County Council Chair remains undecided whether it will go to Battle Ground Council Member Mike Dalesandro of former Clark Commissioner Marc Boldt.

Wednesday Can’t Get Here Quick Enough

by lewwaters

repub-demWednesday, November 4, 2015 is a day I eagerly look forward to getting here. Why? This latest foray into selecting of individuals for public office will be all done with, save for any close races or recounts.

Gone should be the vitriolic slurs seen all over.

Gone should be the sign vandalism and whiny candidates over it.

Gone should be the mud being thrown about by said candidates.

Sadly, what won’t be over will be editorials coming out of the Lazy C’s Lefty Lou Brancaccio smearing and demeaning those he disagrees with.

UPDATED: Do We Really Know Who We Are Electing?

by lewwaters

PoliticianA situation presented itself to me earlier today on social media that now has me wondering whether or not we really know who we elect or what their real qualifications are.

In keeping with my pledge to neither support nor oppose any candidate in this election, I won’t be revealing just which candidate this occurred with or what race it is in, but it has been brought to my attention that it is common practice among several candidates and has been going on for years.

Needless to say, I disapprove.

Power of the Press? Or Obsessive Hate?

by lewwaters

Brancaccio GoebbelsAs expected, ol Lefty Lou Brancaccio is beside himself in glee and gayety due to the outcome of the primary election this week, evidenced in his latest screed, “Power of the press vs. Madore.”

While I stopped supporting Madore some time ago, I stopped relying on the Lazy C for accurate or truthful information long before that, seeing that under the tutelage of ol Lefty it amounted to little more than a daily mouthpiece for the Democrat Party, unworthy to even wrap rotting fish in.

But, Lefty is beside himself, boasting and basking in his successful hate filled smears.

Even Liberals have complained about his weekly obsessive hate filled rants and face it, Madore never shrunk back from giving ol Lefty all of the material he wanted to use.

Saying Goodbye to 2014

by lewwaters

Fireworks 3Another year is coming to a close and in spite of efforts by operatives from the Clark County R3publicans, the little blog performed well again, exceeding 100,000 views in the year. A summary provided by WordPress can be viewed at Annual Review.

2014 was a year of revelations to me, many I wish I hadn’t seen that have left me very distrustful of some elected officials I previously supported. One of the bigger disappointments was hearing very early in the year of a new media source forming that would fill the void left by the Lazy C and not seeing it materialize, but amount to little more than a facebook page.

Be that as it may, 2015 is before us with many unknowns that only time will reveal.

Happy New Year to one and all. I sincerely hope you all have a great 2015 where you prosper and thrive.

Will the Hate from the Left Ever End?

by lewwaters

Crying BabyIn spite of their cries of being for every man, being caring and loving and other such bilge, We have seen the Democrats acting more like those Brown Shirts Brian Baird spoke of back in 2009 than anything else.

We see it daily in a small facebook group, “Clark County Citizens for Good Governance, (C3G2) that actually translates out to “Put Democrats back in control.”

Yes, they do not like how the 2012 County elections turned out and two conservatives became the majority on the County Commission and began changing the direction of the county, as asked by the wide majority that elected them.

Peachtree Restaurant Concert and Vendor Fair 4 Vets

by lewwaters

50th Anniversary Pin This May will see the 50th Anniversary of the Hazel Dell Parade of Bands as school bands, businesses and community groups converge to march through the middle of Hazel Dell, Washington.

This “Golden Jubilee” celebrates the founding of the Parade in 1964, a time of a troubled America ripped apart by a Presidential Assassination, Civil Rights struggle, the Cold War and in need of such a spirit-lifting event.

Nineteen sixty-four also saw a growing involvement 8,000 miles across the Pacific Ocean in the small Asian country of Vietnam that would further divide the American public, with returning Troops met with scorn and derision by a misunderstanding population.

Now that Steve Stuart is Bailing

by lewwaters

Clark County CommissionersAs announced, Clark County Commissioner Steve Stuart has been named as the next City manager for the city of Ridgefield, Washington. Stuart previously announced he would not run for reelection this year, very likely having read the tea leaves that his chances for reelection were somewhat remote, at best.

With his leaving office early, if he actually does, the seat becomes vacant and the political party he ran under, Democrats have to present three names to the remaining County Commissioners to select his replacement.

Whoever is selected will finish out Stuarts term in office and likely will run for reelection in this November’s election.

How Long Has the Lazy C Ignored Illegal Lot Sales by the County?

by lewwaters

Dems, BlindersQuite a shocking revelation was posted on County Commissioner David Madore’s facebook page recently. It seems that the county has been auctioning off property to unsuspecting citizens that they cannot do anything with and end up stuck with.

For all of the excessive verbiage printed by the Lazy C against the so called “M&M Boys,” Commissioners Madore and Mielke now comprising the Republican majority of the 3-person commission, I find not one mention of this practice that apparently has been ongoing for several years in Clark County.

Where we are treated to frequent denunciations of the majority voters chose in the 2012 election as well as ridicule whenever Lefty Lou Brancaccio feels like it, they remain mum on the ongoing efforts by the majority to make much needed corrections where citizens have been getting hurt for so long.

Government Transparency

by lewwaters

Madore 003In spite of the demeaning, denigrating  words read regularly in the pages of the Lazy C, Clark County Commissioner continues to provide changes at County Government that will make our county better and more productive.

Just this evening Commissioner Madore posted on his facebook page;

It’s live – our county checkbook is now online.

Update: Protect the Environment, Read a Blog

by lewwaters

Clark Environmental ServicesBy now we all are aware of the controversy down at the Clark County Department of Environmental Services, the trumped up outrage over the lawful hiring of Republican State Senator Don Benton to be the director, the dozens of articles by the Lazy C blasting that hire and now, the tort claim filed on behalf of the woman who was chosen as the interim director, seeking $300,000 from the county.

In spite of what you have read or heard, the hiring of Don Benton was completely legal and well within the scope of the County Commissioners. It also was not a case of two Commissioners directing the County Administrator to hire Benton, as shown previously in the second portion of the post The Great Clark County Collusion Caper Debunked, where you will find an audio clip of the hiring as well as a written transcript.

In spite of what the Lazy C and the regular detractors commenting under articles say, it was well within the Commissioners scope to do so.

Freeholder Candidates 2013

by lewwaters

LEGEND: Names lined through I do not recommend for a variety of reasons, no info, known            

                       Democrat, CRC supporter or what have you

                       Names bolded, colored and underlined are my preference to vote for

                       Names with (?) after are those I find no negative info on.

The following is just my perception and I encourage you to study candidates in your district for yourselves and choose who you feel is best suited.

In some races you will note I chose two preferred. That is because I feel either would serve well, take your pick.
