Stuart and Rivers have something in common

Back on May 1, when Clark County commissioners moved to hired state Sen. Don Benton, R-Vancouver as head of Environmental Services, Commissioner Steve Stuart became incensed.

On Thursday, he chose to make comment on Benton’s complaint against state Sen. Ann Rivers, R-La Center, by copying and pasting his feelings from that meeting onto his Facebook wall.


Stuart, a Democrat, has been finding himself a few Republican allies lately.

And now he has something in common with Rivers as well: both have shouted expletives in response to a situation involving Benton.
