“My candidacy will provide voters a clear choice to elect someone not rooted in partisan politics,’’ Marshall said. “I intend to listen to the community’s concerns, roll up my sleeves, and go to work to assure our neighborhoods and our county services are the best they can, and should, be.” 

Marshall’s family has been farming in Clark County since 1960 and, with her husband, now manages their fourth generation family farm in Ridgefield. 

“As a farmer, I want to make sure our farms and farmers are able to continue to produce the food and crops we need going into the future,” Marshall said. 

Marshall has served on the Clark Clean Water Commission, Friends of Clark County board, and is currently vice president of the Clark Conservation District.

Yes! I love this! We need more smart folks who understand the importance of farming in our community on the council. Our county cannot be run solely by the developers.

Sue Marshall is on the wrong page of the farming community. She strongly supports the GMA and environmental organization, Futurewise, and served as President of Friends of Clark County, another environmental group. Both of those organizations oppose small farms in the rural area. The GMA pushed the big farmers out of the county, when the officials mandated and zoned such large lots, that farming was not sustainable. No one could afford the land. She has opposed Clark County Citizens United, Inc. at every step of the way. CCCU is an organization dedicated to reasonable land use and zoning, for all our citizens, county wide. She simply wants to lock up rural land and throw away the key. This does not support sustainable farming, nor does it encourage future farming.

The problems? Sadly, she’s a democrat, the non-partisan nature of these races having solved nothing. Also sadly, I look at her web site, and like many politicians unprepared, afraid of or otherwise unable to take positions she’s afraid to give, she says nothing of substance to the people of either this council district or Clark County.

I looked at her web site. The nuts and bolts of council representation are nowhere to be found.

Where is she at on the horrific loot rail scam known as the I-5 bridge replacement? Where’s she at on tolls? How much would be too much? Where’s she at on our taxes and fees generally, and our routinely exploding property taxes specifically?

Where’s she at on crime, law enforcement, the Sheriff’s department? What about transportation and development?

I get that far too many politicians refuse to give their positions except, in perhaps, terms of “glittering generalities.” Vague promises and pledges, easy to interpret and just as easy to ignore when the time comes to vote (Ann Rivers comes to mind as an example here locally)

Politicians who hide this stuff and put out a paper-thin, “take their word for it” front never get my vote, regardless of party. They fail to make their positions known because they NEVER want to be held accountable for what they do TO us, instead of FOR us.

Marshall appears to be no exception. And endorsement by John Blom, well-known RINO, is a deal-killer regardless.

If you’re going to run for office, what about breaking the mold and telling us who you are, what, exactly, you intend to do, and more importantly, HOW you intend to do it instead of nebulous phrases that really mean nothing:

“My candidacy will provide voters a clear choice to elect someone not rooted in partisan politics,’’ Marshall said. “I intend to listen to the community’s concerns, roll up my sleeves, and go to work to assure our neighborhoods and our county services are the best they can, and should, be.”

Political garbage like this can mean anything or nothing. And it’s unacceptable for any candidate to hide out like this.

Why would being a democrat be a bad thing? Honestly, so far Biden has cut the national dabt in half, passed a bipartisan infrastructure bill, passed the chips and science bill, the pact bill, he’s gotten more done in 2 years than any other president in modern history.

Before you fire back with Inflation or gas prices, you need to look at what is happening globaly. The democrats are pro union, pro healthcare, pro social security. What are the republicans for? All I see is them just being against everything and not standing for much.
