Representing Constituent Views Earns Commissioner Mielke the Columbian’s Scorn

by lewwaters

Predictable, the Columbian, the unofficial daily newsletter of the Democrat Party in Clark County has now endorsed a straight Democrat ticket in the Primary Election coming in August. Oh, they’ll claim they endorsed a “Republican” with Marc Boldt, who left his conservative base in the dust long ago to embrace the Liberal Democrat values, but the release of their endorsement for Democrats Joe Tanner and Ron Barca completes the picture of desiring a one party rule on the Clark County Commission.

Ever since Tom Mielke, a Vietnam Veteran Decorated for Combat Valor when he served with the 82nd Airborne in Vietnam, won a narrow victory over Democrat Pam Brokaw in 2008, the lackeys at the Columbian have written everything negative about the man they could find. Unlike Marc Boldt, Mielke votes the conservative view as the conservatives who elected him would expect.

Trying to look out for the well-being of taxpayers, keeping taxes reasonable, questioning the boondoggle CRC and ramming Portland’s light rail down Clark County Citizen’s throats against our will and opposing construction of $24 Million baseball stadium to house a losing minor league team earns Mielke the label of the “No guy” from the Columbian.
