One side of the mailer is devoted to the apology: “I messed up! I made a statement on a previous flier that turned out to be flat-out wrong. I said Marc Boldt doubled the size of government during his terms in office. Not true. It was an unintentional error. I am responsible and I apologize. I will always tell the truth as best I understand it. If I err, I will make it right, publicly. We serve, not for ourselves, but for our community, our families and our grandkids. We must model leadership, character and integrity, even when we get it wrong.”
Madore, owner of U.S. Digital and outspoken opponent of the Columbia River Crossing, is one of three people challenging Boldt, a Hockinson Republican seeking his third term.
Former Vancouver City Councilor Pat Campbell, an independent, and Camas Democrat Roman Battan are also in the race.
