Readers of any duration know I'm not a big fan of Jaime Herrera. But compared to Tim "The Liar" Leavitt, she's a paragon of virtue.
While Herrera has yet to show any real strength, and easily has it within her power to force a county-wide vote by killing any federal funding for this massive waste of money, she has begun the process to provide herself with a thin veneer of cover by her weak, unsupported push to force the downtown mafia/Identity Vancouver types to put at least part of this stupidity to a vote.
Leavitt is by far the biggest liar SW Washington has ever seen in politics... and there has been a few. But as a result of Herrera's efforts, as weak as they are, Vancouver's slimeball mayor wrote Herrera a letter that should earn him a kick in his tiny testicles.
Besides having the ethics of a snake, this moron actually seems to believe that the will of the people is a meaningless phrase, to only be used to help lie one's way into election. The following is a letter the whiny little bitch sent to Herrera as a result of her letter to C-Trans, and I, personally, can't think of any other single event that would make me kill ALL of the federal funding for this thing faster than The Liar's sniveling.
Hopefully, her response went something like this:
Dear Mayor Leavitt,
Since you lied your way into office, it's clear to me that you are unfortunate enough that you truly do not believe you can, or should, be held accountable for your actions. I disagree.
As a consequence of your despicable behavior during the course of your election and your subsequent arrival at your true position, which is to enslave the people of this region with injurious and unnecessary tolls, I have made the determination that as long as you remain in office in any capacity, anywhere, I will kill the funding for this unnecessary and monumental extension of your ego.
Meanwhile, do not ever darken my doorway or communicate with me again. As it is, I will do all I can to stop any federal funding for ANY project that impacts Vancouver in any way as long as you are the mayor of that unfortunate city.
Thank you for your time.
That's the kind of response The Liar's bullshit deserves. Unfortunately, Jaime Herrera has yet to prove herself even capable of carrying Allen West's luggage, let alone punishing those who would attempt to intimidate her as a result of their corruption.
