Yes, Truth and Integrity Matter

by lewwaters

Since she first announced vying for Southwest Washington’s 3rd Congressional District seat occupied currently by Herrera Beutler, the Lazy C and even the local Democrat party largely ignored other Democrats running, Democrats that actually have deep, established roots in Southwest Washington in favor of Long, who somehow seems to have had a swift and sudden revelation that she should abandon her husband and daughter to quickly move from Salem, Oregon to Clark County Washington just in the nick of time to qualify for residency status to run.

Just what this swift and sudden revelation was is never really said, other than Trump won in 2016. The only connection we are told she has to Southwest Washington is 22 years employment teaching at the Clark County campus of WSU, but until July 2017 scurrying back home every evening and weekend to Salem, Oregon.

LTE: Support Jaime Herrera Beutler

Note: Contributed opinions may or may not reflect those of the blog author

Carolyn Long under the campaign slogan “People before Politics” seems determined to present herself as a candidate who promises to work together with the people she seeks to represent in southwest Washington in dealing with the challenges we face concerning tolling, fishing, forests and energy. When it comes to the specifics, however, one is hard pressed to get a clear answer on how she intends to tackle these pressing issues.

Unlike her opponent, Jaime Herrera Beutler, who has opposed the Oregon Toll Bridge initiative since its inception, Long is either unwilling or unable to address what should be done in response to Washington commuters upset by the prospect of needing to pay Oregon for the privilege of living in Washington. Could the detached academic be confident she can ignore the problem and maybe it will go away? Most Washingtonians are not so naively optimistic.

Carolyn Long’s Sleight of Hand

by lewwaters

Once again, Oregon’s Democrat Carolyn Long hoping to replace incumbent Republican Jaime Herrera Beutler as Southwest Washington’s 3rd Congressional District Representative, shows all why she just isn’t the right fit for us in the 3rd.

Now how slick is that? State how much you oppose tolling Southwest Washington commuters, but advocate placing all responsibility for deciding on tolling in the hands of the very unelected Bureaucrats strongly advocating tolling both I-5 and I-205.

No, Carolyn Long is just not the right fit for the 3rd Congressional District in Southwest Washington. She isn’t to be trusted.

Oregon Shouldn’t be Given Washington’s 3rd Congressional Seat

Carolyn Long

It’s no secret that Oregon, Portland primarily has for many years tried to control Clark County Washington while looking down upon us as “Vantucky” and essentially backwater, inbred interlopers muddying their version of Nirvana with our gasoline powered monster cars.

Okay, maybe a bit of an exaggeration, but yes, we all know Portland looks down on Clark County, never hiding their disdain for us, but has shown in the past how much they would love to tap into our revenues on this side of the Columbia River to fund projects and policies they have overextended themselves on.

Think Millions of dollars in income taxes Clark County residents employed in Portland must pay each year while not being given any degree of voice in Oregon’s political scene or think of the failed Columbia River Crossing and the Millions wasted as they worked diligently to force Clark County to accept and fund their light rail a short distance into the community with the promise of a new bridge to replace the aging Interstate 5 Bridges. Remember “No light rail, no bridge, no kidding” from then Governor Kitzhaber?

Long Campaign Issues False Claim, Lazy C Ignores

by lewwaters

It’s been known for some time now that the Lazy C, the Columbian newspaper so labeled by this blog due to their lack of interest in critically viewing Democrats, is and has been reluctant to shine light on Democrat candidates. They just can’t bring themselves to do it.

In the 125th anniversary of the founding of the newspaper it was freely admitted the paper was founded as “a weekly paper with a Democratic bent designed to counter the local Republican paper of the time.”

And from where I sit, it hasn’t changed, still failing close to half of the region.
