Councilor Madore, Have You No Shame?

by lewwaters

Madore, GlarePolitics is said to be a blood sport. But even politics is regulated by laws and regulations concerning campaigning and, more importantly a little common sense is needed in how a candidate or elected official acts in public if they desire to hold or win office.

Clark County Councilor David Madore seems to believe such measures do not apply to him as he continues to dig himself deeper and deeper into a hole of irrelevancy while announcing his intent of running for reelection.

His latest escapade is mind-boggling in that he claims to be ferreting out corruption, but engages in a form of corruption against a private citizen himself.

And the Order of the Golden Shovel Goes To;

by lewwaters

Golden ShovelWill Rogers famously quipped, “If you find yourself in a hole, stop digging,” meaning of course, if you find yourself increasingly on shaky ground, especially in politics, reassess your position and approach differently.

Locally, we see County Councilor David Madore, who has announced his intent to run for reelection this year, the brunt of many negative editorials and an increasing din of public opposition.

Madore was elected by a wide margin in 2012 in hopes of seeing a much needed shift to the right in county governance. But it seems winning by such a margin went to his head and he forgot that governing is a team effort, not an authoritative one.

Good Governance and Rumor Central

by lewwaters

McKenna 3It’s no secret that County Councilor David Madore is heavily despised by the left, evidenced by smears from the facebook group “Clark County Citizens for Good Governance” as well as the local newspaper of record and daily mouthpiece for the Democrat Party, the Columbian, better known here as the “Lazy C.”

And face it, some of that disdain is brought on by Madore’s own conduct, but even this bull in a china shop manner does not merit anywhere near the vitriol and abject hatred seen from both.

I always felt it strange that they labeled themselves with “Good Governance” as the one-sided view promoted there does not approach good governance, but more one-party rule.

Searching around a bit, I stumbled across an Australian site: WHAT IS GOOD GOVERNANCE?

This is Your Mayor

by lewwaters

Leavitt 5I recently decided to ‘unfriend’ a young Liberal on facebook over what I perceived to be of questionable emotional stability, reinforced in my estimation by an over the top, overly emotional outburst over my unfriending her.

Most curious was the amount of other people that flocked to the post to offer consolation as if it were some sort of divorce one would expect to see in something like the Young and the Restless Soap Opera.

Among those coming by to console and assuage the feelings of this young person was none other than ‘da Mayor, Timothy ‘the Liar’ Leavitt, that prompted me to confront ‘hizzoner’ on his allegations against me in an email exchange, seen below.

Yes, I Invited Katie Gillespie

Katie Gillespie

Once again, I seem to have raised the scorn of a few so-called Republicans for having the audacity to invite and approve the Columbian’s new County Government reporter, Katie Gillespie into the South West Washington Opinions facebook group.

The Columbian, better known by me as the Lazy C for the extreme lack of objectivity in political reporting, hired Gillespie to replace Stephanie Rice, one that did not have an objective bone in her body.

For a little background, it was also me that blasted Gillespie on my facebook page for quickly joining in on the C3G2 (Clark County Citizens for Good Governance) facebook group, a group that grew out of the failed recall effort of County Commissioners Madore & Mielke.

When Hate Drives the Agenda

by lewwaters

A prime example of those that would radically transform the Government of Clark County Washington because they despise one Commissioner.

Over a personal facebook page? Seriously?
