New Clark County Council Candidates Are Shaping Up
Don Benton is running for Clark County Council District 5. Don was first elected to public office when he won a seat in the Washington state House of Representatives in 1994. In 1996 he was elected to the state Senate to represent North East Clark County, and was reelected four times.
Michelle Belkot is running for District 2 (Julie Olson's current district). Michelle has served in the Air Force and Navy for a combined 24 years and ran for Vancouver School Board last year. She's running to bring back the "representing" aspect to the Council and be the people's voice on important issues like crime & policing, homelessness and vital transportation improvements to reduce traffic and commute times. But most of all, Michelle is a fighter for the people rather than the bureaucracy and the administrative state in Clark County.
Doug Coop is running against Temple Lentz in District 1 and is still getting his team and info together but could come to the next CCG Workshop and you'll meet him.
Get behind and support these candidates by clicking on their names and volunteering and helping them in any way you can.
We have a great opportunity this Fall to replace Temple and Julie and get a conservative majority back on the Council. Getting back control will be HUGE before the next Covid variant miraculously pops up before the next election.
