Boldt: political opportunist?

(FULL DISCLOSURE:  I freely admit that I am totally opposed to Marc Boldt's election this time, just as I was last time, since he's completely sold out to the left; forgotten/ignored GOP principles, supports the CRC scam in it's entirety and wants to hang tolls around our neck for the next several decades that will destroy a great deal of small business in Clark County as a result.

NO candidate or campaign or anyone involved or in any way concerned with any candidate or campaign was aware of or approved or had input into this post.

Further, Marc Boldt is my brother-in-law, and I worked for him as his legislative assistant for 6 years while he was in the state house.)  

So, when Marc Boldt announced he was running last March, he said this in the democratian:

Now, all of a sudden, this is his take:

This is what the screen shot says to make it easier to read:

Marc Boldt, a former Republican legislator and county commissioner who was sanctioned by the county party in 2012, says he's giving up his GOP affiliation in his latest race.
Boldt had previously announced he would run for the newly created post of chair of the Clark County council. In a news release issued Tuesday, he said he was doing so as a nonpartisan candidate.
“This county needs a chair who can represent ALL of Clark County, not just the people in their party,” he stated in a press release.
Over the last few election cycles, Boldt continued, “About half of Clark County voters don’t identify as either party. And it’s not hard to see why! When I’m out in the community every day, I hear it: voters are sick of partisan bickering. It’s hard to get motivated to care about what happens in your government when all you see is hard-line positioning and fighting.”

So, let me get this straight:

When Marc first indicated he was running, it was as a "conservative Republican."

That was on March 30.

And between now and then, he heard all this stuff that he, apparently, hadn't been hearing before he claimed he was still a "conservative Republican?"

Talk about flip flops.

Is there any question that he's playing political games now, all of a sudden?

And when will he resign from the local GOP as a precinct committeeman?
