Updated: Madore Prematurely Asked to Step Down

by lewwaters

Madore 003At the Aug 23, 2016 County Council Meeting, former Commissioner Ed Barnes, citing being called upon to step down early after Jeanne Stewart was elected so she could take over, called upon controversial councilor David Madore to step down since he was defeated in the primary.

I understand his sentiment, but Ed forgets that there is not yet a candidate elected as Ms. Stewart was.

Ed was also mistaken in his assertion that then fellow Commissioners Madore and Mielke asked the County Prosecutor to call upon Ed to step down early. Since Ed was appointed to fulfill the rest of Steve Stuart’s term, after Stuart resigned to take a better job, State Law says he had to step down once a permanent Commissioner was elected in the General Election, as was explained.

Clark County, We Have a Problem

by lewwaters

Yes, we all have witnessed the dysfunction ongoing with the five member County Council and finger pointing is going in all directions. But it seems the problem extends beyond just the friction between the five councilors.

It’s bad enough that the councilors can’t seem to agree on much, but week after week we see the same citizens coming forward repeating their vitriol towards one group or another.

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.

So, Ed Barnes Thinks He Is A “Team Player?”

by lewwaters

Ed Barnes continues his campaign of grouchiness and blasting any and everything the County Commission does, then ended his weekly tirade with;

As a retired union thug, does he not realize a “team player” works with the team and not against them? It also does not mean that he gets to call all of the shots.

But, as he says, he is intent on tying up the prosecutors office and overloading them over nothing, all driven by hate and fueled by the Lazy C on a near daily basis.

Ed Barnes Wants to be a County Commissioner?

by lewwaters

The Lazy C has reported that local loudmouth and old grouch, Ed Barnes, has thrown his hat in the ring for the nomination to replace Steve Stuart on the County Commission.

Do we really want someone with such a grouchy attitude representing us on the County Commission?

Thoughts on Commissioner Stuart’s Cowardice

Steve Stuart

Reading comments left on County Commissioner Steve Stuart’s announcement of not seeking re-election, you would be led to think somebody real important had died. The Lazy C and supporters of Stuart’s sound more like they are eulogizing than thanking Stuart for his years sitting on the council, furthering their views, even if against the views of a majority in the county.

Stuart was first appointed to the County Commission to replace liberal Democrat Craig Pridemore, who had been elected as State Senator for the 49th legislative district. Stuart joined a Democrat majority on the three member commission along with Betty Sue Morris and Republican Marc Boldt.

His 2010 re-election would have it appear that he would be lone Democrat sitting on the commission as Republican Tom Mielke had won a narrow victory over Democrat Pam Brokaw in 2008 and Republican Marc Boldt had won re-election against Democrat & Vancouver City Council Member Jeanne Harris, but as we all saw, Boldt “moderated” his views and became more aligned with liberal Democrats in his votes with Stuart, leading to his being sanctioned by the local Republican Party and in 2012, slaughtered in his bid for re-election, losing to first time runner David Madore.

Who’s Doing “Stupid Stuff?”

by lewwaters

If Don Benton warning Ed Barnes of the potential of a lawsuit over his vitriolic outbursts is considered “doing stupid stuff,” then what is Ed Barnes threatening to sue every elected official that doesn’t abide by his desires?

Why is there no outcry over Ed Barnes threats like was whipped up over Benton’s?
