Salzman Targets Eureka PD

Now that Richard Salzman and company has succeeded in screwing up the District Attorney's office for another four years, as I suspected would happen, his sights are now set on another target.

The latest from Richard's mailing list asks everyone to "lobby" (my word) the Eureka City Manager to select a progressive police chief, now that the City has started their search for a replacement for retired Chief, Dave Douglas.

Here's his marching orders to the minions:

If you live in Humboldt County, please help guide the Eureka City
Manager in the selection of a humanitarian police chief who will take a sane
and rational approach to dealing with all of our citizens including the
mentally ill and who will respect and uphold California law including
prop 215.

Police Chief Recruitment Survey
The City of Eureka invites you to participate in the selection of its
next Police Chief. Please click on the attached pdf, print out the
survey and return it to the City Manager's office by July 21, 2006. You
may mail the survey to:

City of Eureka, City Manager's Office
531 K Street
Eureka, CA 95501
Or Fax your survey to 707.441.4138
Thank you for your participation.

Gee, he lives in Trinidad. Whatever happened to local control?

Amen to everything you just said! I agree with you, Fred.

local control is just a convenient phrase to sway the masses. Like "Fraud is not a victimless crime."

NOTHING Salzman says is true, and he is inherently more honest than Gallegos.

He has nothing vested in this community. He does not own property. He is not married. He has no kids. He has no business here.

His only stock in trade is vicious divisive dishonest campaigning. KMUD is his mouthpiece.

He will continue to have his control as long as good people stand by and either look the other way or say nothing.

so I guess your voice is worthless if you have no kid, are not married, don't own a business and don't own property... sounds like a few people on this blog...

add to that you are a proven liar, using the media to manipulate the public, starting up little groups to make it look like you are bigger than you are, and posting stickers on parking meters to make it look like there is a grassroots movement afoot.

I own property, I am married, and I have two kids. All Salzman did is provide the link to the city's survey form. It's not binding - they just want feedback. I put the link on my blog as well, and now Fred's put it on his.

I won't be submitting a survey because I'm not a Eureka resident. But as long as the city is asking, what's wrong with getting the word out?

"Proven liar": "absolutely no Big Box"?

"Using the media to manipulate the public": Eureka Reporter?

"starting up little groups to make it look like you are bigger than you are": HELP?

who are you talking about?...

Minions? Give me a break Fred. He's got an email list, not an army of evil robots.

Point well made. Here's the Webster's definition of "minion":

1 : a servile dependent, follower, or underling
2 : one highly favored : IDOL
3 : a subordinate or petty official

Not that I'm one to beat myself over the head over definitions, but followers, underlings, or subordinates seems like it might apply to members of a mailing list.

Dave Tyson doesn't live in Eureka either,should he be the one doing the selecting then?

At 9:01 AM, Anonymous salzman eats fishcrackers said...

kool-aid anyone?

hold on, I'm confused fred. What's your position on "respect and uphold California law" and "propisition 215"?

Is this radically lefty communist rhetoric? or just good-old democracy?

as for using the media to "manipulate" the public - hey, anyone remember how we got fooled into invading Iraq? or fighting the "war on drugs" against our own people? or how we Bush jr. got into office? twice? WHERE'S THE OUTRAGE?!? oh no, some pot-smoking kool-aid drinker sent some letters to the editor without his real name on it! holy shit!

And he lives all the way in Trinidad? That must be thousands of miles away on some tiny island!!! oh, the little town 20 miles or so away from the ever-expanding ceaselessly polluting city of Eureka, well, I'm sure he won't be affected all the way out there.

hey sunnybrae girl: you said, "Amen to everything you just said! I agree with you, Fred," but Fred didn't say anything. What do you REALLY think? that's what I want to know.

At 9:02 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Oh give me a break 8:51 - Tyson WORKS for Eureka and you can't compare that with Salzman who does nothing but bleed money from people over the internet and keep this community in a constant state of divisiveness. Why? because when people come together they make concessions to get along and the "regressives" and nutjobs like Salzman et al don't want people talking and making concesssions at all - they want it just their way. So they beat the drums and print their lies to misinform and then they can "control" public opinion for a short time for their misguided causes. If Eurekan's want that fine. If they don't then they better say say something now!

But will respectfully keep my opinions to myself, seeing as I live in Sunmnybrae, and would have to move to some big city and get a shitty job with a long commute if people weren't allowed to grow, smoke, and share cannabis here in Humboldt county.

Ultimately the people of Eureka will speak on election day. Of course, some decent alternative candidates have to run if they really want to see change happen. FYI most of Eureka's department heads don't live in Eureka. You don't even have to live in Eureka to serve on city boards and commissions. You do have to live in Eureka to run for city council.

At 10:47 AM, Blogger Anon.R.mous said...

Seems that the word "minions" does work. Might I say you should add the word "mindless" infront of it?

At 11:11 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

"if they really want to see change happen."

Think twice. Voting for change for change's sake is what got you Gallegos. Meth dealers being plea bargained right and left, Child abuse cases being turned away, programs that help the victims being sustematically dismantled, drunk driving charges being reduced to wet recklesses, the loss of experienced prosecutors... the hiring of idiots like Schwartz, the DA's office turned against the cops, officers on the street discouraged beyond belief....

Humboldt County got what it voted for, and the semas that were frayed will soon disintegrate altogether.

Eureka has a choice, elect "progressives" and go the way of the DAs office, or stand up and say NO to Salzman and his mindless minions.

Kerrigan/Salzman wants you to vote in some people that think like they do, so nothing will stand in their way..

Well, maybe you'll save alot of money because you won't need a police force anymore. Just a couple of cops to bust business people who dare to achieve a measure of success.

It's a brave new world that awaits you.

Vote for Kerrigan and his devotees.

Salzman works in Eureka

At 11:50 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

I have worked with Richard and heard him told "no" many times. He is brilliant and bullheaded and to be admired. He can be collaborative as well as pushy. He is passionate about his country and community. He is part of, but not at the top of, the large community (thank God) of open-minded patriots who live and work in Humboldt County. Mindless minions? Hardly.

"Salzman works in Eureka".

News to me, but I was told he was some kind of art broker. I assumed that was the kind of thing one could do in a home office.

That would explain why he spends so much time in Eureka, though.

At 1:31 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Salzman does not work in Eureka. If he works at all, it is only as a political operative. Who pays him, that is the question.

Where'd he go to school? What qualification does he have to pontificate and direct all the happenings in the County?

What happened to independent thinking, Chirs Kerrigan? Bonnie Neely? Do you care so much about getting elected that you will listen to a high school drop out?

At 1:38 PM, Blogger Eric V. Kirk said...

Well, he pulled of an upset electoral win over a well-entrenched incumbant, and crushed a well-financed recall attempt - probably altering the course of Humboldt County politics for years to come.

Whatever else you say about him, THAT's what qualifications he has to pontificate about local politics.

I must be missing out on the info that says he works, or has anything in Eureka. Heck he doesn't even state "Trinidad" on his webpage, you have to do a whois on it.

That phone number is getting weird hits:

Kristen Funkhouser - (415) 285-8267 - San Francisco, CA 94102

Fun fact of the day, Everett Peck is the guy who came up with Duckman, still is odd that this phone number covers this many people.

Does it apply to readers of your blog?

Being on one's mailing list (I am on a number of them) hardly qualifies as being an "underling" or "subordinate."

"Follower" perhaps but even that is a stretch.

clearly fred is on the list and he isnt their follower. id say that only applies to those who obey.

Salzman works or worked for Blue Ox Mill

At 8:41 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

sorry, but you can't compare salzman the liar with no visible means of support, who has created nothing, to Arkley. not even close.

At 8:51 PM, Blogger Bitxxx said...

There is no reason to compare the two.

At 11:36 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

was it ever clear what slazman did for blue ox? guess his artist's rep job didn't pay all that well. then again, has any artist locally - and we have some fine ones, ever seen him exhibit one iota of interest in them or their work?
maybe salzman international is his brother or his dad's business. not his. nobody knows much about this guy.
who is he? where does he get his money? who pays him? does he have a real job?

Yes I am on his list, but that doesn't mean I wouldn't "obey" if he put out an action request along the lines of something I agreed with.

I actually never signed up with his list. I just started receiving his e-mails. I figured he probably acquired the e-mail addresses from some other lefty e-mail list, like the Redwood Peace and Justice Center list I subscribe to, and built his list from that.

No problem with that. Nice to know what people are up to.

'S why we have freedom of speech. So we will know what they are up to. Keep 'em in the open out of the the cannabis filled backrooms. Theoretically.
