Bart Hansen Announces Run for Vancouver City Council

"Hansen Seeks to Retain Council Seat"

- Bart Hansen Campaign
VANCOUVER, Wash. – City Council member Bart Hansen announced today that he will run to retain his seat on the Vancouver City Council.
Hansen was appointed to council in January 2010, filling the seat vacated by Tim Leavitt after he was elected Mayor. Last year Hansen’s appointment was confirmed by winning the general election.

Vancouver considers program to help with water, sewer bills

- The Columbian
A new program in the works could help cash-strapped Vancouver water and sewer customers get emergency help with their bills.
Similar to Clark Public Utilities’ longtime electric bill assistance program, the Vancouver City Council on Monday mulled starting its own Utility Customer Payment Assistance Program for low-income residents who fall behind on their water, sewer and stormwater bills.
The program would get $100,000 — a portion of the late fees collected on city...

Hansen, celebrating with his wife and supporters at Clark College, said he was “very excited” by the results, but wasn’t ready to...

Hansen for Councilor

Vancouver has been well-served during his short term

- The Columbian
Bart Hansen’s candidacy for the Vancouver City Council probably is one of the few things upon which Tim Leavitt and Royce Pollard agree. The current and former Vancouver mayor, respectively, both endorse Hansen, who has served for nine months since his appointment to replace Leavitt as councilor. He’s served well, too, and has earned The Columbian’s endorsement for several reasons.
First, Hansen, 35, is the youngest member of the council and the only councilor who...

Vancouver City Council Seat No. 4

Vancouver City Council Seat No. 4

- The Vancouver Voice
Councilman Bart Hansen was appointed earlier this year to fill Tim Leavitt's spot when Leavitt was elected as the new Mayor. Jenkins also applied for Levitt's position but was passed over. As much as the tolling debate has dominated public discourse, Hansen is only one vote on the city council and he does not sit on any boards or commissions that address the tolling issue. It is unclear how if Jenkins wins, he would be able to use the position to stop tolling on the 1-5...
