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.”

2014 Election Predictions

by lewwaters

Voting boothI usually shy away from predicting the outcome of elections, but decided I’d throw my two cents in concerning the Clark County, Washington elections in November. It’s a bit early, yes and predictions are subject to change as information comes available. But this initial post will indicate how I see the outcome of the elections.

A disclaimer of sorts, these predictions are solely based on how I see the current information and read the current political tea leaves and are by no means infallible. They also may not be how I would personally like to see a race come out, but are how I view the reality of it.

First, apologies to the people in the 14th and 20th Legislative Districts. Your districts cross county lines and I simply do not have access to other counties at this time, so I am unable to predict how those races will go.

Who in the Hell is Sean Emerson to Try to Dictate What is Posted on This Blog?

by lewwaters

Tinker Never SleepsLiberty: the state or condition of people who are able to act and speak freely; the power to do or choose what you want to; a political right.

As you all know, this blog and its author have been under anonymous assault for a few months now from operatives of the Clark County R3publican Party. The party posting the endless series of assault labeled himself “I. Tinker,” and said of the choice of anonymity,

“When we first started LWW, there was discussion of whether we should be up front with who we are or whether we should stay anonymous. It was a difficult decision, but we went the way we did because Lew’s prime weapon in his arsenal is to identify his critics, and then silence or marginalize them with heated ad hominem attacks. Basically he uses his position as The Clark County Conservative to just bury his detractors in mud. So we made a tactical decision to not give him the target on which to use his favorite – and it turns out his only – weapon.”

Duh, Jim Moeller

by lewwaters

I have often thought Jim Moeller (D 49) might not be the brightest bulb in the chandelier, but this comment he left on his facebook page, January 23, 2014 is a mind boggler.
