Local Solutions Gets A Candidate
The Local Solutions Political Action Committee, that group working to get progressive candidates elected to local office, seems to have found at least one candidate to run for a local school board. Shane Brinton, an eighteen year old self described Marxist, has entered the race for a seat on the Northern Humboldt Union High School Board. He's facing off against a local developer who Brinton seems to have nothing good to say about. You know: Developer= Capitalist, and all that.
Be interesting to see if this kid turns out to be an embarrasment to Local Solutions after all is said and done. You know: Young, full of piss and vinegar and a commie to boot. He might end up like that one guy, whose name escapes me right now, that ran for Arcata City Council, described himself as a libertarian, then proceeded to alienate not just the voters but the other candidates as well. Too early to tell if this will end up going along the same lines. I would think, though, that Local Solutions has some screening process. Then again, if you're desperate for candidates, it can degenerate into a take whatever you can get type of thing.
Wonder if Local Solutions has found any other candidates to back in these upcoming races?
