Yes, this is the “email update” I’ve been sending throughout the Primary but in an improved format devised by Mary Nevius! I’ll still keep them short and simple, with no more than one/week, and the new look hopefully entices more readers. After this issue, people can subscribe from my webpage because different folks like to be informed through different means. (I.e. not everyone loves Facebook.)
Thank You! Your support and participation have meant everything for a campaign with the results we’re seeing. Please take a look at this “Just A Minute” video linked here which is for you!
Ballot Count Status As of tonight, the 4th ballot count was posted by Clark County Elections as shown below. In this last round, I got another 3,000 votes, so my percentage continues to inch upward. The next count will be done on Monday, and Elections says that now there are only 2,500 more votes to count, so change will likely be minimal from this point forward.
Election Turnout Final 2020 turnout will be shown on Election Certification Day, Tuesday the 18th. So far it’s at 49.85%! Howfascinating to compare this number to primaries in the last ten years in Clark County: 2018—36%; 2016—31%; 2014—29%; 2012—31%; 2010—39% You can speculate on why the increase! Influence of Seattle and Portland? Trump? Broad lawlessness?
My Opponent Jesse James, a self-described Bernie Sanders Democrat, is my opponent in the General Election for Council District 3. Positions include the following. He wants to see decisions evaluated for impact on climate change. He supports the City of Vancouver’s temporary ban on new fossil fuel infrastructure. He generally supports law enforcement and does not join the chorus to defund police. James wrote: “Recently the City of Vancouver unveiled their intention to build several tiny houses on a lot in the Fruit Valley area. This will provide low income housing on a rent to own basis. I would like to see this happen countywide. In addition to rent to own, these homes can also be used as transitional housing for those trying to get off the streets and out of shelters.”
