Washington Legislators Urge Clackamas County Commissioners to Say No to Light Rail into Vancouver

Washington State legislators send open letter Clackamas County Commissioners urging them to say no to Light Rail crossing into Vancouver.

i-trainandlightrailaccidents1.jpg

The letter cites a myriad of reasons why the current Columbia River Crossing (CRC) should be stopped and urges the Commissioners to consider the multiple votes held on the issue in Clark County.

You can view the letter here

We are asking all of our supporters to contact Oregon Republican legislators to join Rep. Conger in putting the CRC to rest for good.  Rep. Conger could also use some emails of support telling him how much we appreciate his courage in leading this charge from the Oregon side.   Rep.JasonConger@state.or.us

2014 Budget and Gun Registry

Governor Inslee is promoting his 2014 Budget as drama free.gunrights.jpg

This ain’t necessarily so…

Specifically, the 2014 budget would spend:

…“$409,000 of the general fund (on a) state appropriation (to fund) seven temporary staff to eliminate the firearm-transfer backlog of 144,000 documents by June 30, 2015. The department shall convene a work group to develop a report on making the firearms program a fee-recovery program. The work group must examine changes including but not limited to making firearm-transfer reporting mandatory, charging a fee for firearms transfer recording, and recommending cost-recovery methods to keep up with demand.”

Joe Waldron, legislative director for the Washington State Rifle and Pistol Association says the Handgun Registry is so incomplete that the list serves no real purpose.  “It’s never about background checks or any of the other things these people say it is,” he said. “It’s always about registration of every weapon. If they know who owns every gun and where it is, the next step is taking them away. All of these other things they do are just a way to move the ball in that direction.”

Benton calls for Planned Parenthood audit.

benton.jpg

Senator Don Benton of Vancouver called for the investigation of Planned Parenthood afterThe Alliance Defending Freedom accused them of over-billing Medicaid and the state of Washington at least 50,000 times, costing the state $337 million.  Senator Benton said an audit is the best way to determine if the accusations are true.  In the senator’s letter he said, “We should not wait for a judicial decision on this case. Taxpayers expect the State to use their tax dollars wisely. We must verify Mr. Bloebow’s claims and, if found to be true, insist that PP fully reimburse the State.

 Brian Sonntag, Former Washington State Auditor, and current Fellow at the Freedom Foundation.  

You will often find these words in newspaper endorsements and other articles about former Washington State Auditor Brian Sonntag. His willingness to ignore party labels, challenge the status quo, and stand up for taxpayers meant the life-long Democrat consistently won many Republican votes and often upset the state’s political establishment. It also made him a regular Freedom Foundation ally.

What to do about Freeholders??

Board_Meeting_Picture.jpg

The CCRP has decided not to endorse candidates in the Freeholder races because there has been no consensus of what the makeup of the Charter should look like even among the many solid (known) Republicans in these non-partisan races. We could list those who we believe are good Republicans, but in many races that would be almost half of those running.

Some of the areas where vast disagreement exists among our members are the number of commissioners, whether the County Executive should be elected or appointed, and if Initiative and Referendum should be added to the Charter.   Had there been agreement on those issues we would have been able to evaluate the candidates, but even on these basic issues there was no agreement reached.

We would recommend reading the candidate statements, visit their websites if they have them and contact them directly.  There is one website, not affiliated with us, that lists conservative Freeholder candidates which might be of interest to you.  (This should not be construed as an endorsement of the CCRP). 

Ultimately, it will be the Charter derived from this process that will need to pass muster with the electorate.  If the Charter is not representative of what the people decide is needed, it will be voted down.

The Clark County Republican Party is not endorsing any Freeholder candidates and doesn't necessarily agree with all statements and commentary at freeholder.info.
