Sharon Wylie, D-Vancouver, could “argue from both directions.”For her, it’s the perfect example of dilemmas lawmakers face. For her opponent, Republican Anson Service, “it’s probably his favorite topic of all time.” They both believe the exemption helps local businesses and should continue to exist. That’s largely where the common ground between the two candidates ends. Wylie points to her long political résumé — once a lobbyist and a former lawmaker in Oregon and now the 49th District incumbent — as an asset. “I was once Clark County’s lobbyist and I don’t consider lobbying a dirty word,” Wylie said at a recent candidate forum. “I represented the citizens of Clark County to the Legislature and I know the process.” Wylie said she’s proud of the work she’s done scrutinizing the state’s tax breaks.
