first_img This weekend’s top stories and news you may have missed: Mayoral candidates vary on visionIn the past four years, the city of Vancouver has cut operational costs, improved its credit rating, landed major employers such as PeaceHealth, Integra and Farwest Steel Corp. and started a $40 million waterfront access project to transform the city’s west end.But no matter how many first-term accomplishments Vancouver Mayor Tim Leavitt cites, to some people he will forever be defined by his flip-flop on bridge tolls.Those people include his challenger, City Councilor Bill Turlay, who called the Columbia River Crossing the defining issue of the mayoral race.“This is going to be a referendum (on the CRC),” Turlay said of the Nov. 5 election.Read the full story here.Advisory votes get mixed reviewsA set of advisory votes next month will allow Clark County residents to weigh in directly on light rail, bus rapid transit and three proposed bridges across the Columbia River.The nonbinding measures will give voters up-or-down decisions on three bridge alignments: a replacement Interstate 5 bridge, a new bridge to the west of the freeway, and a new bridge to the east at Southeast 192nd Avenue. All three are described as “toll-free” proposals in the voters’ pamphlet.The measures don’t ask voters to favor one idea over another.
