It is time to modernize Clark County government As background, prior to retiring in 2013, I served for 24 years as Camas’ first city administrator, and prior to that for seven years as city manager of an Oregon community. My interest in modernizing the structure of local government led me to be a candidate for Freeholder in the east Clark County, seat number 2 position last fall.

Support the proposed charter Thank you to the freeholders, whom the voters elected last November, for putting together a solid and balanced new Clark County County Charter for voters to approve this November. Clark County had around 12,000 residents when the Washington State Constitution was approved in 1889, which established our current form of county government. At over 400,000 residents, our county is ready for a form of government that gives county residents better representation, provides separation between policy makers and county managers, and gives residents a way to replace county laws they disagree with.
Vick’s rubbery ethics Recently, the newspapers noted an effort to reign in the relationship between Washington legislators and lobbyists. The committee started with a focus on “free” lunches. The limit suggested was 12. That would be once a week for three months or twice a month for six months, etc.

‘Unexamined’ assumptions about the concealed carry license In her Aug. 19 Letter to the Editor, “Obtaining conceal/carry license is too easy,” Joanne Pinelli expressed concern that it is “too easy” to obtain a concealed carry license in Washington. She expressed her aversion to guns, but failed to define what, exactly, the problem is with the concealed license process.
