In the ongoing effort to keep Clark County Citizens informed on candidates and issues affecting us all, and not always finding mention in the Columbian, Couv.com, “Clark County’s Online News Network” has began rolling out interviews with candidates competing for city, town council or mayor in each of the eight cities in Clark County.

Vancouver businessman David Madore, seeing a need in Clark County for a balance in news reporting, founded Couv.com with a focus on various avenues of concern for Clark County. Such a focus is found in the interviews that are now being rolled out 2 at a time by region.

Mr. Madore outlines the procedures for the interviews here, indicating questions were not given to any candidate before hand and each was prohibited from sharing the questions with other candidates prior to their interview.

Bill Turlay Announces Run for Vancouver City Council, Pos. 6

by lewwaters

Bill Turlay, a US Navy Veteran actively involved in the community released the following statement this afternoon.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE ….. TURLAY ANNOUNCES HIS CANDIDACY FOR POSITION # 6 IN THIS FALL’S CITY COUNCIL RACE

Today Bill Turlay announced his candidacy for Vancouver City Council Position #6, which is the seat currently being held by Pat Campbell . Bill’s announcement was delivered at the Clark County Republican Women’s luncheon held at Vancouver’s Club Green Meadows Banquet facility.

Turlay previously sought a council position in the 2009 election; he believes voters are ready for a more inclusive representative that will represent all of Vancouver and not just special interest groups.

Turlay cited three positions in his campaign platform; Preserving Livability within our neighborhoods, Zero Base Budgeting and more Government Transparency on issues facing taxpayers. ” It is incumbent on the Vancouver City Council to not incur any additional city debt, continue to drastically reduce its expenditures, extend payments for long term projects, and at the same time provide funding for core services.”

For more information please contact Susan Page, Campaign Manager at 360-253-6941 or bill.turlay@mail.com

The Vancouver City Council has been unresponsive to many community concerns, especially in regards to the proposed Columbia River Crossing and extending Portland’s financially failing Light Rail into the community. Turlay has been an outspoken critic of many council actions.
