County Tea Partyers to talk ballot measures



We the People Vancouver, a Clark County political group affiliated with the Tea Party, will host a talk about this fall’s ballot measures at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Vancouver Community Library, 901 C St.

John Roberts of the Freedom Foundation will speak about many measures on the Nov. 6 general election ballot. John Charles of the Cascade Policy Institute in Portland will discuss C-Tran’s Proposition 1, which would increase sales tax in the C-Tran District by 0.1 percentage point to pay for light rail operations in Vancouver, as well as help construct a bus rapid transit system on Vancouver’s Fourth Plain corridor.

Additionally, Julia Anderson, a nonpartisan candidate for Clark Public Utilities commissioner, and Adrian Cortes, a Republican legislative candidate, will talk about their campaigns.
