Bart Hansen: City Council #4, Vancouver
Bart Hansen was sworn in as City Commissioner February 1, 2010 to fill the position vacated by the election of Tim Leavitt as mayor. He is currently the Office Services Manager at Clark Public Utilities. He is also a member of the Vancouver School District Management Advisory Task Force, the Vancouver Rotary, and the Clark County Mural Society. He is also a graduate of Leadership Clark County. He is a strong proponent of the environment and believes that the most pressing local issues revolve around soil and water contamination. He envisions a regional parks authority which would allow citizens to vote directly on levies and bonds thus removing parks from competing for city budget monies. Mr. Hansen acknowledges the need for a new I-5 bridge and supports the Locally Preferred Alternative which includes light rail. Mr. Hansen was clear and forthright about his positions. He is not a commissioner whose message varies depending on the audience. Bart Hansen will be a strong voice for environmental protections, forward-looking public transportation and responsible government.
