Anne McEnerny-Ogle is the only choice for Vancouver mayor. Her opponent, Earl Bowerman, is quoted as saying, “In terms of the structure of the city council, I think that we need a strong mayor program, very much like the state is organized, where the mayor can make decisions that will have an effect” (“Vancouver mayor race: Two different approaches,” The Columbian, Oct. 10). In other words, Bowerman wants his voice on the council to be the only voice. I find this unacceptable, but not surprising.
Mayor Anne’s performance, background and qualifications far outweigh Bowerman’s. She should be reelected.
