If you are unfamiliar with Steven Cox, don’t feel bad. So is a lot of Vancouver.
Vancouver city council member and Mayor Pro Temp, Anne McEnerny Ogle made her run for Mayor of Vancouver official this morning at the Fireman’s Hall on Fruit Valley Road. The Hall was packed to capacity with a diverse audience in attendance wishing Anne well.

I recently decided to ‘unfriend’ a young Liberal on facebook over what I perceived to be of questionable emotional stability, reinforced in my estimation by an over the top, overly emotional outburst over my unfriending her.
Most curious was the amount of other people that flocked to the post to offer consolation as if it were some sort of divorce one would expect to see in something like the Young and the Restless Soap Opera.
Among those coming by to console and assuage the feelings of this young person was none other than ‘da Mayor, Timothy ‘the Liar’ Leavitt, that prompted me to confront ‘hizzoner’ on his allegations against me in an email exchange, seen below.
Pick up a copy of the Lazy C or just look out your window and we can see the city is beset with trouble. Roads are iced over with our third day of extreme cold weather and the Lazy C’s Sunday edition is quick to stir up fears over three shootings in two-days in the city.
They turn to road crews about the weather and question the County Sheriff over the shootings, but lacking is any quest for answers to recently reelected Mayor, Tim Leavitt.
We see reports from Portland TV News and read statements from Mayors across the country when crisis hits their communities. We see media pressing for answers. We see efforts of others to calm citizens, remind them that the weather will pass, drive safely, shootings are rare but that there are steps we can each take just in case.
Spoken like a true crybaby, Mayor.
Three days ago Ms. Walters wrote on her facebook page: “Wanted to let you all know that today I resigned my position with the city council. Time to move forward in my life and make some serious changes. I will be moving out of the area but will keep in touch as I move through this season. Here’s to better tomorrow’s.”
Lisa was citing strictly personal issues prompting the sudden resignation.
Posted on her facebook page this evening;
Battle Ground citizens woke up today to news that the city has gained a new mayor, the first female mayor ever appointed by city council, Lisa Walters, who has served as a city council member since 2001. Lisa replaces Michael Ciraulo as mayor who stepped down as mayor due to an increasing workload in his day job position as division chief for Clark County Fire and Rescue, but will remain on the city council.
Ms. Walters had the support of the other council members going into the Tuesday council meeting, her appointment all but guaranteed with the final vote being unanimous.
Lisa was reelected to the Battle Ground city council over challenger Michael Dalesandro by a 53.23% to a 46.45% margin. At the time she was coming under fire from other council members for her standing against the mayor on occasion. She didn’t actively campaign and when asked by Clark County Conservative for information supportive of her reelection bid replied, “I do not have any flashy campaign info,” and “I have elected to not seek support from any group.”
