Turlay Endorsed by Campbell, McEnerny-Ogle Reaction Disappointing

by lewwaters

In a move that seems to have surprised most everybody, outgoing Vancouver City Council member Pat Campbell has come out endorsing Bill Turlay as best suited to replace him.

Campbell endorses Turlay for his Vancouver seat

Campbell cites as his reason, “Although Bill Turlay and I take opposite stances on some local issues such as light rail, public bus service, and the Columbia River Crossing (not to mention our disagreements on national issues!), I am endorsing him for the citizens. Position 6 has a history of being occupied by straight shooters who have put service ahead of self or reelection.”

“Bill doesn’t make rash promises or play people for political gain. He hasn’t put himself in the middle of property or labor negotiations for political traction. Most voters know where Bill stands.
