This week’s Clark Talks takes a deep dive into the latest in county politics, including an interview with ousted Clark County Manager Mark McCauley.

McCauley, who was fired in a surprise move by the Clark County council in May, discusses his next job opportunity in Port Townsend. He also reflects on his years at the county through a transition to a Home Rule Charter form of government, as well as heated political times.

Then, county politics reporter Jake Thomas interviews Nan Henriksen, the former Camas mayor who chaired the Board of Freeholders that wrote the county charter. Henriksen discusses county government under new councilors, as well as McCauley’s firing from Clark County.

Finally, events maven Ashley Swanson shares the weekend ahead with hosts Katie Gillespie and Dameon Pesanti, including details on Vancouver USA Pride, Amboy Territorial Days and the Concerts for a Cause Pawchella event.
