I Should Apply for County Manager too

by lewwaters

Job ApplicationIt is interesting watching County Councilor David Madore’s efforts to see acting County Manager, Mark McCauley ousted from his position instead of verified to become permanent County Manager.

Interesting in that Madore is on record highly praising Mr. McCauley after the former County Administrator, Bill Barron retired shortly after Sen. Don Benton was hired to head the County Department of the Environment in 2013.

It was then County Commissioner Madore that took to his facebook page praising Mr. McCauley saying, “I know Mark well and am very pleased to have such a great choice to run the day to day operations of the county. Mark has served as a competent leader heading up of one our largest departments, general services. His good judgment and ability to work with people add to his many years of proven leadership at Clark County.”

The Great Clark County Collusion Caper Debunked

by lewwaters

Clark County CommissionersAs we in Clark County are aware of, given we have been inundated for over a week now of article after article from the local mouthpiece hating the hiring of Don Benton to head the county department of environmental services, allegations of “collusion” have been raised in an effort to stir up citizens to support a recall of County Commissioners Tom Mielke and David Madore.

But those allegations are unfounded, they are little more than a fallacy trumped up by a few who see the overwhelming votes for both as interfering with the agenda previously seen from the County Commission and who wish to thwart the will of the county voters in changing the direction of the County Commission.

First of all, we need to establish what is meant by the term “collusion,” which means “an agreement between two or more parties, sometimes illegal and therefore secretive, to limit open competition by deceiving, misleading, or defrauding others of their legal rights, or to obtain an objective forbidden by law typically by defrauding or gaining an unfair advantage.”

Just What Does Commissioner Stuart Know About ‘Real Leaders?’

by lewwaters

Ron Paul CrybabyThe manufactured flap over the admittedly legal hiring of State Senator Don Benton to be Clark County’s director of environmental services rages on, now with County Commissioner Steve ‘Bullshit’ Stuart deciding to publicly take fellow Commissioner David Madore to task over Madore’s open letter to retiring County Administrator, Bill Barron.

On May 4, this blog ran a copy of Madore’s Open Letter that cleared up several fallacies being promoted by Benton haters and the lazy c, since Barron quickly announced retirement from the position, timing it to appear as if he could no longer tolerate the two conservative Commissioners, Tom Mielke and David Madore.

Stuart, who left the Wednesday meeting in a profanity laced huff announced he will apologize for that outburst at the next meeting, although he took the intended apology back even before it is issued by justifying his juvenile act.

by lewwaters

College 4Submitted by Professor Robert Dean

Ring, Ring!

Madore: Hello!  Commissioner Mielke! Why are you calling me?

Mielke: Hi, David, good buddy, old pal! I’ve got Commissioner Steve Stuart on the line – he wants to have a conference call.

Madore: A conference call? Is that legal?

Stuart: Hi Commissioner Madore. Of course it’s not legal – that’s what I want to talk to you about.

Madore: Go on.

Stuart: I want to apologize for publicly cussing you and Tom out at the last meeting. Since I cussed you out publicly I feel I should apologize publicly. But I need you to put it on the agenda. I want this to all be legal and proper.

Benton Vows Protection of Natural Resources and Restoring Balance

Senator Don Benton

Liberal heads have been exploding all over Clark County Washington ever since it was announced that the County Commissioners desire to streamline the process and by a 2 to 3 vote, selected 17th Legislative District State Senator Don Benton to head the County’s environmental department.

County Administrator Bill Barron suddenly decided to retire by September 10, likely out of disagreement with the selection. The Columbian calls it an insult and liberals are incensed and flooding the County Commission with emails expressing anger.

The County Democrat party has even gotten into the act by issuing a call for people to flood Council Chambers Tue May 07 at 6:00 PM at the Public Service Building, 1300 Franklin St. to “discuss the error” of hiring Benton.

As this blog and others have posted for several years, Sen. Benton is likely one of the most hated officials in Clark County, largely due to his critical look at things like the middle class bankrupting CRC light rail project Democrats and the Columbian want built on the taxpayers backs.
