Opposed to hike in utility rates

  • Oct 23, 2014 at 2:37PM

Supports Flood for District Court judge

  • Oct 23, 2014 at 2:26PM

Claire Bradley will make a bad judge. She recently conspired with her campaign manager Matt Clucas to reduce the charges for that attorney’s client, Marcus G. Croman. Croman was driving with a suspended license for unpaid child support, when he struck two people walking from the casino. He left the scene and was arrested at home.

Supports Hauge for prosecutor

  • Oct 23, 2014 at 2:25PM

I am voting for Russ Hauge and I hope you will join me. For the past 19 years, he has been exemplary as our county prosecutor. Those who know him best professionally are his legal peers in the Kitsap County Bar Association (KCBA). In KCBA’s recent poll of candidates, Russ far outdistanced his opponent in the “highly qualified” and “preferred candidate” categories.

Supports Streissguth for County Commission

  • Oct 23, 2014 at 2:22PM

In recent candidate profiles and debates, we’ve heard the terms balance, single-minded, and debate. Some feel members of the Board of Commissioners unanimously agree on everything. I suppose it’s easy to get that impression if you’ve never attended any of the work-study sessions of the board. Unanimity is not a given.

Supports Streissguth for County Commission

  • Oct 23, 2014 at 2:21PM

Although we have contributed to the campaign of her challenger, Ed Wolfe, in recognition of his respect and support of the government-to-government relationship between the Tribe and the County, we feel that Linda Streissguth aligns more with the Suquamish Tribe’s values and vision.

Supports Wolfe for County Commission

  • Oct 23, 2014 at 2:20PM

Kitsap, we have a problem. Last week on page A4 of the Herald, there is a letter attacking Ed Wolfe for opposing Title V. The letter asserts Wolfe is “opposed to imaginary issues.” In the same paper, on page A11 is a lengthy article with the headline “Title V: Back to the drawing board.”

Supports Wolfe for County Commission

  • Oct 23, 2014 at 2:18PM

Debbie Vancil may believe (“Supports Streissguth for County Commission,” page A5, Oct. 17 Herald) that a system where those in office get to pick a replacement county commissioner will result in getting the best, as is the game played by the Courthouse Club. I do not.
