Eureka Reporter Lies?

Not available online yet (hate it when they do that), but today's Eureka Reporter has a guest commentary by local Green, David Giarrizo, criticizing this article from last Thursday's E/R.

He starts off by saying "Readers deserve to know the truth behind the LIES printed in Thursday's Eureka Reporter...". For crying out loud. He seems to think it's all part of some media conspiracy to defame the Greens. I didn't read that into the article.

He goes on to complain about the wrong local Green organizations being given credit with various resolutions of one kind or another. Hey, I have a tough time making heads or tails of what's really going on with the local Green groups myself, at least from checking out their web pages. Two are under construction with little information on the them.

The Eureka Greens page is actually just a blog where they post their meeting agendas. How is one supposed to know where they stand on a given issue, or who said what, with that? I've suggested to them before that if they have their meeting agenda up there, they should probably post the minutes of the meetings there as well. They obviously didn't take my advice.

David then goes on to give a few good words to embattled Green higher up, Greg Allen. Looks like David must be in the minority, Allen Faction, within the Greens.

One wonders how the Eureka Greens (David being one of the Eureka Greens, as well) feel about Measure T? I know I saw something on their agenda some time ago referring to a resolution opposing Measure T but never saw any follow up on it.

You need to post your meeting minutes to your web page, David, if you want people to get everything straight about the Eureka Greens. Don't be calling people "liars" simply because they can't get things straight with a party having multiple chapters and factions. It's understandable people get confused.

Let's face it: People not familiar with the local Greens would be hard pressed to tell the players without a program, never mind who supports what resolution.

And, David, if you DO oppose Measure T, feel free to let me know and we can add your name to our No On T Endorsements page.
