Keeping Our Transportation Dollars for Our Needs

by lewwaters

Let’s not send our transportation dollars to Portland, Oregon in support of their failing light rail system forced into Clark County against the wishes of taxpayers and voters. We need to use our tax dollars to solve transportation issues in our own state before giving anything to Oregon’s bottomless pit Metro.

While there are no legislative races in tomorrows election, we can begin returning sanity to our local government by reelecting Jeanne E Stewart to the Vancouver City Council, elect Bill Turlay over Tim Leavitt as Mayor of Vancouver, elect Micheline Doan and Frank Decker for Vancouver City Council, Vanessa Amundson for Camas City Council and Lyle Lamb for Battle Ground City Council while keeping Lisa Walters. Write in Tim Wilson for Ridgefield City Council.

While not directly related to transportation issues, a vote for Lisa Phifer Ross for Vancouver School District will be an improvement for our schools.

  1. It would almost be worth living in the city if I could vote to dump Leavitt and Burkman.
