In the complaint, Green — a vocal critic of Madore and one of the administrators of citizen watchdog group Clark County Citizens for Good Governance — lists two specific Facebook posts made at the height of the Clark County council chair race. Madore spent more than a quarter million dollars on the write-in campaign for Pike.
One post from Oct. 1 thanked the Camas Republican for “tackling fatal flaws in the Growth Management Act.” The post went on to share a letter from Jerry Olson, principal engineer of Olson Engineering Inc., to Pike that pointed out flaws in the GMA. That same letter is posted on the C-Grid, listed among documents for the 2016 Comprehensive Growth Management Plan update.
Another post from Sept. 29 criticizes Boldt for voting to approve a developer agreement as a Clark County commissioner in 2012 for a commercial shopping center near the Interstate 5 interchange at 179th Street. The post accused Boldt of making an “illegal gift of public funds that is derailing new business and killing jobs,” and linked to the developer agreement on the C-Grid. Though that has since been removed from Madore’s Facebook page, Green provided a screenshot of the post in his complaint.
“I’m hoping that the PDC will investigate, and even confirm that my suspicions are correct, (that Madore) used the county C-Grid website to post his own documents that had to do with electioneering,” Green said.
Madore did not return a request for comment. Email records show the PDC contacted the councilor for a response to the complaint.
