Here are MY choices for the Clark County Wa ballot. I have only included races I have comments about, otherwise you can assume I would choose the Republican in the race since I more closely align with that party. More information can be found on several of these candidates at https://clarkrepublicans.org/2020-general-election
President- Donald Trump
I voted for Trump in 2016 as a vote against Clinton. He has done well. I am not a globalist. Joe Biden has been in politics for many years without a lot to show for it (well, except he and his family are rich now) Here is additional information on why he gets my vote:
Washington Governor : Loren Culp
The policies of Jay Inslee have shown they do not work. He did not know about "chop" and Seattle has turned into a dump. Watch the documentry news show "Seattle is dying" Time to try a different approach.
Washington State Lt. Governor : Write-in Joshua Freed
Meh, I am not really a fan, but I see the value of having an "R" working with Culp.
Washington State State Treasurer: Duane A. Davidson
Congressional District 3 U.S. Representative: Jaime Herrera Beutler
Washington State Secretary of State: Kim Wyman
Washington State State Auditor: Chris Leyba
Attorney General: Matt Larkin
Commissioner of Public Lands: Sue Kuehl Pederson
WA State Superintendent of Public Instruction : Maia Espinoza
We need her fighting for us in the school system.
These 2 races are the most important in Clark County
County Councilor District No. 3 Councilor: Karen Dill Bowerman
I have worked with Karen over the past 18 months within the Republican party and most recently on her campagn. She is going to be great in this position. She knows how to listen to all sides of an issue and make the best decision. We really need her on the council
County Councilor District No. 4 Councilor Gary Medvigy :
Gary is an incumbant and so we have had an opportunity to review his record. I am pleased with his performance and want him to continue to lead in our community.
14th Legislative District I'm not sure I know anybody from this District ;)
Legislative District 17 State Representative Pos. 1: Vicki Kraft
I met Vicki when she worked for The Freedom Foundation. We agree on most issues and I watched her several times on https://www.tvw.org this year fight for positions I believe in. I hope she continues fighting for the people of the 17th.
Legislative District 17 State Representative Pos. 2: Bryan White If he is on your ballot, Bryan White. Bryan is not officially a candidate and removed himself from the race, but he was on the primary ballot and may be on the general election ballot. Despite no website or advertising he did remarkably well against the incumbent. It just shows how unhappy people are with the current choice.
Legislative District 18 State Senator Write-in Tom Mielke: I actually was against this idea initially for fear of splitting the vote, When the Republican candidate spoke at our central committee meeting she came off as entitled and I changed my mind. The more I have read about her voting record and the bills she has co-sponsored I realized I needed to back somebody who shared my beliefs more closely.
20th Legislative District - This is my district, but since it only contains a very small part of Clark County, most candidates do not campagn here, so I don't know them. The one candidate I really liked lost in the primary.
Legislative District 49 State Senator Rey Reynolds The 49th would be lucky to have Rey represent them, he is a stand up guy.
Legislative District 49 State Representative Pos. 1 Justin Forsman Justin is a bit eccentric and he has run for office in the past. I see a real maturity with this run and it demonstrates to me that he is interested in learning and growing. I also agree with most of his political leanings as well.
Legislative District 49 State Representative Pos. 2 Leave Blank I will never recommend a vote for Park Llafet. I worked with him for several months and he has proven to me that he is incompetent. He tried to sabotage the local Republican party and their largest fundraiser. If all that isn't enough, he was verbally abusive to me over the phone and I instructed my family to never answer the phone when they saw his name on our caller ID.
I know most all of these candidates and feel they are the best choices:
Charter Review Commissioner At Large Pos 1: Tom Mielke
Charter Review Commissioner At Large Pos 2: M. Kirby Ware
Charter Review Commissioner At Large Pos 3: Justin Forsman
Charter Review Commissioner Councilor District 1 - Position No. 1: No Recommendation
Charter Review Commissioner Councilor District 1 - Position No. 2: No Recommendation
Charter Review Commissioner Councilor District 1 - Position No. 3: No Recommendation
Charter Review Commissioner Councilor District 2 - Position No. 1: Tom Higdon.
Charter Review Commissioner Councilor District 2 - Position No. 2: No recommendation
Charter Review Commissioner Councilor District 2 - Position No. 3: Peter Silliman
Charter Review Commissioner Councilor District 3 - Position No. 1: Adam Baldwin
Charter Review Commissioner Councilor District 3 - Position No. 2: No Recommendation
Charter Review Commissioner Councilor District 3 - Position No. 3: Jeff Angelo
Charter Review Commissioner Councilor District 4 - Position No. 1: Dick Rylander or David Stiles - really hard to decide on this one since both of them have some great qualities. (Chuck MIller has withdrawn)
Charter Review Commissioner Councilor District 4 - Position No. 2: Glenn Kincaid
Charter Review Commissioner Councilor District 4 - Position No. 3: Liz Pike
