Letter: Turning point for Washougal



Washougal Mayor Sean Guard said November’s election could be a “turning point” for his city (“Washougal officials take sides in election,” Aug. 14, The Columbian). He was referring to the so-called Washougal Four and their desire to become the Washougal Five or Six. The lack of trust these members have for individuals they must work with has led to a dysfunctional local government, an embarrassment to Washougal.

Michael Delavar pursues his own ideological agenda, independent of Washougal’s best interests.

Jennifer McDaniel called the mayor’s concerns “political garbage,” apparently unaware of her part in the dysfunction.

For Washougal’s sake, vote them out, and vote to retain Molly Coston and Rod Morris.
