Gee, who could Leavitt be talking about on Facebook?

Well, someone is feeling bold today after being part of the majority in a 7-3 vote.

Vancouver Mayor Tim Leavitt, perhaps miffed that Clark County Commissioner Tom Mielke took off Tuesday after the C-Tran composition review committee meeting and didn’t stick around for the C-Tran Board of Directors meeting (where Leavitt serves as chairman), posted this on Facebook today:


Note he didn’t mention anyone by name, but the hints were all there: $100,000-plus salary and car allowance? Check. Known as vindictive? Check.  Known to skip out on work and meetings with no reason? Check. 

As chairman of C-Tran, Leavitt doesn’t have the authority to “fire” Mielke. But he does get to control the seating arrangement.

Maybe at the next meeting, he’ll put Mielke in a time-out?
