Ballots are out and even though most already know who they will vote for, many are still undecided on who should replace outgoing county councilors, David Madore and Tom Mielke, Madore resoundingly defeated and Mielke retiring after many years in public service.
I also wish to thank all four candidates in County Council races for their running clean campaigns and not resorting to the mudslinging we see all too often in legislative races and previous County Commission campaigns.
The primary election narrowed the field to John Blom and Tanisha Harris for the District 3 and Roman Battan and Eileen Quiring for District 4. I live in District 2 so I don’t have a vote in either election since our newly implemented County Charter changed how we vote in these races as well as moving from a three person County Commission to a Five person County Council.

With the announcement of Tom Mielke not running for another term as Clark County Councilor for District 4, three citizens have stepped up to vie for that seat and represent citizens of Clark County as we still work out the bugs on the recently adopted Home rule Charter.
Although I have strived to remain out of campaigns the last couple elections, several people have requested I reengage in assessing candidates running for office and given the egregious behavior of District 3 incumbent Councilor Madore, both on the Council and towards me personally, I feel compelled to add my two cents in this year’s election.
I previously endorsed John Blom for District 3, having seen that the incumbent David Madore has not acted in the best interest of the County and has only sought deeper divisions as well as attempting to bully the majority of the Council from his minority status. His behavior must not be rewarded.
Given that; I will give my personal assessment of each and endorsement below.
