Did Marc Boldt Really Vote Against Light Rail?

by lewwaters

An interesting referral was made towards me this evening under Lefty Lou’s latest Press Talk rant concerning the Christian Berrigan led Write-in effort of Liz Pike for County Council Chair, one I did not expect.

Way down in the comment, former County Commissioner Betty Sue Morris stated,

“Ed Elder Marc Boldt did not vote for light rail. In 2008, when the ‘preferred alternative’ for the CRC was in front of the RTC for approval and included light rail, both Marc Boldt and I voted no. Check with either Lew Waters [or] Robert Dean if you don’t believe me!”

Newspaper Bullies and Hypocrites (updated)

by lewwaters

Columbian FishwrapBy now we all are aware of Lazy C editor Lefty Lou Brancaccio’s bullying and demeaning of those he despises every week in his so called editorials.

But this sort of over the top bullying from him is not something new, he’s done it many times before.

In fact, this blog called him on it back in November 2010 when a ‘Moderate’ Republican, the very thing he also calls for from Republicans, was the target of his vitriol over announcing he had cancelled his subscription: Lou Brancaccio and Chicago Bullying Tactics?

Jim Moeller Still “Doesn’t Get It”

by lewwaters

Moeller, SilenceJim Moeller, Democrat 49th Legislative District Representative is as liberal and arrogant as they can get. He has long shown that what voters think is irrelevant to what he thinks, between dreaming up ways to stick constituents with more taxes during a deep recession to joining in to sue to invalidate their votes, Moeller marches to his tune, not that of his constituents.

Nothing gives a better example than his continued support of forcing them to accept Portland, Oregon’s ill fated light rail, even with them repeatedly saying they do not want it.

In short, Jim Moeller just “doesn’t get it,” as he told me in comments under the Columbian article, C-Tran seeks direction on light rail

Apparently, C-Tran ‘doesn’t get it’ either as we have been telling them since 1995 that we taxpayers do not want to Portland’s light rail and do not want to pay for it.

Democrat Group Claims “Nonpartisan,” Turns Down Republican

by lewwaters

Clark County seems to have a new Political Action Committee (PAC) claiming “the need for women to have a strong voice in our community continues to remain critical. H-RoC is an independent, non-partisan PAC committed to the advancement of women’s leadership…”

The group of women desire to accomplish by three steps,

1. Engaging and connecting women at all levels of our community as leaders, activists and informed citizens;
2. Providing support and mentoring for women participating in civic and political life;
3. Coordinating collaborative efforts for change through effective and efficient actions and our unwavering commitment to the return of civil discourse.

H-RoC is an acronym for “The Hand That Rocks the Cradle Rules the World,” a phrase created by William Ross Wallace meaning, “Mothers are the most powerful people, because they shape their children’s personalities.”

Like many older sayings, they are used to mean other things in modern times, as this new group uses it to describe their group in supporting women’s involvement locally.

However, H-Rocs’ claim of “nonpartisan” seems a bit premature as a review of their chairs seems to be a Who’s Who of local Democrats and CRC supporters. In fact, I see not one well known local Republican female included in their group.
