It sure seems like she is essentially in favor of maybe opposing the project if perhaps voters and taxpayers once again get the chance to make their voices known if by chance a vote on funding is ever held again.
She has sent a “strongly worded” letter suggesting a district-wide vote, but declined to take a position on the major sore point of the project, extending light rail from Portland, Oregon.
She said on whether or not she supports light rail, “That’s an interesting question. I don’t want to get out in front and impose my feelings on the public. I’m not going to say, ‘I know better than you all what is needed here’.”
You just have to wonder, if she is like this in a friendly environment like Lars Larson, how would she fall apart in a hostile interview?
So far I hear this only from the Longview Daily News, but October 13 looks like the date the first of hopefully 4 debates will be held between candidates hoping to replace retiring Democrat, Brian Baird.
Oct 13 at Noon will see the candidates at the Thurston Chamber of Commerce Candidates’ Forum at noon at the St. Martin’s Worthington Center, 5300 Pacific Ave S.E. in Lacey, WA.
They will meet again the same day at 6 p.m. at the Lower Columbia Community College’s Wollenberg Auditorium, 1600 Maple St. in Longview.
The candidates will be on the KGW-TV Channel 8 program “Straight Talk” on Oct. 15 to tape a debate that will be televised on Ch. 8 Oct. 16 at 6:30 p.m. They meet again Oct. 18 at the Camas High School Theater at 7 PM.
