Neely's Kick Off
Bonnie Neely kicked off her campaign for the Board of Supes yesterday at a press conference in Eureka. Apparently I mis- read the announcement sent out by Local Solutions about the event. I thought it said that Chesbro, Berg and Thompson would be there. Looking at the announcement again, I realized it was just referring to their support for her so I guess they weren't expected to show up.
No real mention of who did show up for her press conference, other than a reference by the Times- Standard to "people from all political persuasions..". Although mention was made of Richard Marks also being in the race, I guess he didn't show up either, at least no mention was made of him being there. I had double dared him in a private e-mail to show up and try to get some press but apparently his cooler mind prevailed.
There still doesn't seem to be any sharp policy differences I can see between Neely and Flemming, other than proposed solutions for the Balloon Tract. I definitely won't be voting for Neely. Whether I vote for either of the two other candidates I'll have to decide later. Either that or I might not vote in that particular race, as I sometimes take pride in doing.
