The Flemming Page
Former Eureka Mayor, Nancy Flemming, has her campaign web page for fourth district supervisor up and running. One thing seems clear, at least from the list of endorsements she's gathered already: Looks like, despite Flemming and Neely both being Republicans, this will be a race centered on redevelopment policy and likely defined as Right vs. Left.
Flemming has Kurt Kramer, Rob Arkley and Chris Crawford among her endorsements. I suspect Neely will get the endorsements of the Kerrigan/ Levalee crowd. I'd almost be willing to bet money the progressive PAC, Local Solutions, will step into the fray on Neely's side, as well, if only because it looks like the developers are backing Flemming. This could get ugly.
Of course, there's also the obligatory freebie Flemming throws out: the offer of possibly free wireless internet around the county. Whatever. I guess most candidates have to throw some carrot out.
It will be interesting to see how the issues develop. This might end up being one of those races I don't vote in, but probably not. I won't commit myself to anything at this point in the game.
Now, I wonder if Bonnie Neely is going to put up a campaign web page?
And if you haven't already done so, head over to the Buhne Tribune and vote on which of the two candidates, Flemming or Neely, needs the makeover.
