Warrenton: Candidates committed to running for another four years
Continued from Page 1A
Balensifer has been act-
ing mayor since former mayor
Mark Kujala announced in
March that he was stepping
down mid-way through his
four-year term to spend more
time with his family and busi-
ness, Skipanon Brand Sea-
food. Whomever the com-
mission picks to replace him
will be mayor through Kuja-
la’s 2018 term. At the hear-
ing Tuesday, both Newton and
Balensifer said if they were
picked as mayor, they would
run again for a four-year term
after serving out Kujala’s
term.
Assuming the two candi-
dates will vote for themselves,
Dyer and Commissioner Pam
Ackley will cast the decid-
ing votes. If the final result
is a tie, Balensifer will con-
tinue as acting mayor until the
stalemate is broken or through
2018.
Packed with people
The city’s small meeting
room was packed with people
who had come for the hearing.
They submitted written ques-
tions to Deputy City Recorder
Dawne Shaw, who read them
to the commission. Balen-
sifer and Newton took turns to
answer each question.
There were several ques-
tions asking the candidates
about their political and edu-
cational backgrounds and how
they believed those experi-
ences equip them to serve as
mayor. Balensifer answered
that he has long been politi-
cally active, and pointed out
that he has been “shadowing”
the former mayor in his posi-
tion as mayor pro tem. New-
ton said most of his experi-
ence is business-related.
Port of Astoria Commis-
sioner Stephen Fulton asked
the candidates if they have a
plan to help the Warrenton
School District with its build-
ing space needs. Both candi-
dates replied that these deci-
sions were for the elected
members of the school
board to make, but that the
city would cooperate when
appropriate.
Another question asked
Newton to clarify his stance
on the Walmart development.
Newton had voted against the
store coming to Warrenton
and, on Tuesday, he repeated
that he didn’t think Walmart
was right for the community,
that it would not bring the liv-
ing-wage jobs it has promised.
Balensifer said when he was
on the city’s Planning Com-
mission, he had voted against
Walmart’s original site design
because it didn’t match up with
city code, but that if a business
meets the code, “equal treat-
ment under the law means we
permit them.” He added that
it’s up to the electorate to then
inform the city how they feel
about new or different types
of development.
Four more years
Pat O’Grady, owner of
Warrenton Auto & Marine
Repair, asked how long New-
ton and Balensifer plan to stay
with the City Commission. At
a previous meeting, O’Grady
had spoken in support of
Newton as mayor. Balensifer
replied that he had not consid-
ered running for mayor previ-
ously because he’d assumed
Kujala would still be mayor.
“If there’s a good person in
office, running the city well,
why run against them?” he
said.
Both men then said they
were committed to run-
ning for another four years if
appointed as mayor.
Other residents who gave
public comments — includ-
ing Balensifer’s father and
Newton’s longtime friend,
Mike Balensifer — urged
Ackley and Dyer to vote for
Balensifer.
“I think the commission
has already made their deci-
sion on who should be our next
mayor,” said Lyla Gaebel, a
former Sunset Empire Trans-
portation District board mem-
ber. She pointed out that for
all of these years, they have
continued to select him to
serve as mayor pro tem, act-
ing as mayor if Kujala was
unavailable. She commended
Newton for applying for the
position, but, she said, han-
dling city budgets, codes and
policies is very different from
business.
“At this time,” she said,
“I don’t believe you have the
experience in government.”
St. Clare: Was convicted last year for
animal cruelty in Snohomish County
Continued from Page 1A
The Warrenton Police
officer asked St. Clare where
she would rank her cats’ care
on a scale from 1 to 10. She
allegedly gave herself a rank-
ing of two. Despite the dis-
mal conditions, St. Clare
allegedly told the officer she
fled because she was fearful
authorities would take her
“kitties.”
Though all of the 41 live
cats were properly fed, most
of their coats were stained
with urine, and the ammonia
odor lasted two days after the
cats were rescued, Bayshore
Animal Hospital Director
Brad Pope said. Nearly all
the cats allegedly contained
mites, fleas and microscopic
lice.
The cat taken to clinics
in November allegedly still
suffered from the same eye
scarring clinic staff noticed
months earlier, Pope said.
That cat will likely be euth-
anized within weeks.
Out of the seven cats that
had been tested as of the
motion’s filing, five tested
positive for leukemia. The
animals that survive will
not be available for adop-

A psychologist predicted
she would continue to hoard
cats, which she viewed as
her family, and wrote that
St. Clare did not believe they
were as sick as animal con-
trol officers described.
The warrant was filed
after St. Clare failed to appear
at an April 2016 hearing.
Clatsop County Circuit
Court Judge Paula Brownhill
kept bail at $25,000 despite
Marquis’ request to raise it
to $50,000. St. Clare was,
however, excluded from the
matrix that determines which
inmates get released when
the jail is too crowded, mean-
ing she will only be able to
leave jail if she posts security.
Kirk Wintermute, a
court-appointed attorney for
St. Clare, called the $50,000
bail request excessive, cit-
ing the fact that St. Clare
is homeless and would not
be able to pay either figure.
Marquis said exclusion from
the matrix was preferable to
increased bail.
“The harm she has done
is substantial,” the district
attorney said.
An early resolution con-
ference has been scheduled
for May.

Lack of permit
During an inspection, the

had been operating without
a general seafood-process-

years, which led to the previ-

Da Yang applied for an indi-

is still working on.
The state agreed not to
fine Da Yang for future unper-
mitted discharges while the
