Letter: Officials: focus on top priorities



Thanks to County Commissioner Marc Boldt for outlining the top priorities of Clark County in 2012 during the recent State of the County address. Those priorities include a balanced budget, jobs, reasonable stormwater regulations and basic human services. This is indeed a refreshing contrast to Gov. Chris Gregoire and several state representatives (U.S. Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., and state Rep. Jim Moeller, D-Vancouver) who improperly subordinate their primary responsibilities of developing a balanced state budget and creating a competitive employment environment to support gay marriage. What is perhaps more disappointing is the use of their elected position to promote a personal political agenda.
