Letter: ‘I am in full support of Brett Simpson for Clark County auditor’


Vancouver resident Michael Jelineo shares his thoughts on the race for Clark County auditor

Editor’s note: Opinions expressed in this letter to the editor are those of the author alone and do not reflect the editorial position of ClarkCountyToday.com

These days we need transparency, whether it’s our elections, or other business that is conducted in Clark County by County officials. Greg Kimsey has been the Clark County auditor for 24 years and he has been slacking in job performance for the last several years. He hinders transparency when it comes to our elections and helps find ways for candidates to cheat, or he disqualifies a candidate at the last-minute nullifying the votes of thousands! Yet, he’s allowed others to do similar things and still have their name on the ballot and their votes counted.

Recently it was reported that Mr. Kimsey had confirmed two weeks prior to take part in the Clark County Republican Women’s Auditor Debate between himself and newcomer Brett Simpson. But at the last minute he decided to bail and not participate because he said it was going to be a biased debate because the CCRW endorsed his opponent. It appears that he doesn’t want to receive scrutiny by the public for his bad decisions these last few years and the covering up of stuff that is happening in the Auditor’s Office.

We need change in Clark County and return to true transparency when it comes to elections and election integrity. Brett Simpson would be that change to help stop the fraudulent election issues we currently have. I would also like to see Brett bring back the old voting system we had when I had started school as a kid. I know when I was in elementary school, they would send us home early on voting day and they’d set up voting machines in the school library. People would come to vote in person. I never got to experience it, but I would love to now that I am older. If you want to find out more about Brett Simpson and his campaign, visit his website Simpson4auditor.com and watch his video series, you will be impressed! Please vote for Brett on November 8, 2022, and let’s bring back confidence in our elections.

I hope you are referring to when Greg Cheney (running in the 18th position 2) asked Kathy McDonald (Clark county Republican Vice Chairwoman) to contact Greg Kimsey to move Cheney’s precinct line so Cheney who was in the 20th would be in the 18th so he could run for office. I saw the text exchanges on Awokenpatriotscc.com. Cheney is in the 18th thanks to Kimsey. Cheney is a terrible candidate who used his influence as Clark County Republican Party Treasurer to ask for favors.

I have never been involved in determining legislative district boundaries. The state Redistricting Commission and the legislature determines those, not county auditors.

That is correct. You were involved in asking for precinct lines being moved in Spring of 2021 per Kathy McDonald. You were in the 20th and now you are in the 18th. Kimsey can and did move the precinct line for you. The text messages from Kathy to Kimsey are public record and were obtained through public disclosure. As an attorney, you should understand how that works. The rest of is can see the exchanges on awokenpatroitscc.com. You wouldn’t be in the 18thbif you hadn’t used your influence as Treasurer with the Clark County Republican Party.

Mary, you have your facts straight but I think you got your Greg’s mixed up! You needed to respond to Kimsey but you wrote like you were responding to Cheney! Regardless, both Greg’s need to go. Good job on not letting Kimsey intentionally try to confuse us with legislative lines vs precinct lines. Kimsey can control precinct lines and did so for Cheney. The text from Kathy McDonald to Kimsey and the line being moved support the outcome. So why would Cheney need to be in the 18th? Why not just run in the 20th?

What an event last night. Brett Simpson answered so many questions. He truly enlightened us as to how an auditor should do their job. Kimsey does not have the 2020 records for an audit! He has a report but not the details. He had them erased in Texas where he bought new boards.

All records and information from the 2020 general election have been retained as required by law.

He can’t . He didn’t keep the records needed. They are gone just like him in November. Clark County will never know the true count from any election for the last 24 years that Kimsey has been auditor.

Any concerns, YES!!! Quit LYING to the residents of Clark County about how 100% Fair an Accurate our Elections really are.. 2020 was so full of FRAUD…. Maybe you need to go Watch 2,000 Mules maybe you will get the picture. Also maybe you should read the constitution as well. I am VOTING FOR BRETT for Change in Clark County and Honest and Fair Elections and Election Processes.
