Mielke Draws 2 Challengers, Democrats Continue to Leave Marc Boldt Alone

by lewwaters

Clark County Democrats are once again showing their hand in the next election for the Clark County Commission. It’s no secret they haven’t like that conservative Tom Mielke beat out liberal Pam Brokaw by a small 209 votes in the 2008 election.

Even the Columbian has spared little ink in their efforts to paint Mielke as inept and not worthy of holding office.

In the meantime, even though labeling himself a “Republican,” Marc Boldt comes down on the side of liberal Democrat Steve Stuart often, especially in efforts to ram CRC and light rail from Portland down the throats of Clark County residents, even though we have declined it more than once in the past.

Tom Mielke is the lone voice opposing it on the Commission.

Both Mielke and Boldt are up for reelection this year, but so far, Democrats have fronted 2 challengers, both against Mielke with no challengers against Boldt.

It would appear that having one conservative voice on the commission is more than Democrats can stand as they seem to be content with leaving the more liberal Boldt alone so far.
