Tish Makes It

Looks like Tish Wilburn's nomination signatures were all accepted by the Eureka City Clerk's office. The Eureka Reporter mentions she's registered to vote as a Libertarian, then mentions one of Tish's campaign issues as, "She’d like to see a more active council... one that takes a strong role in enforcing the city’s existing ordinances and policies. ".

Hmmm...doesn't sound like something a Libertarian would run on.

The E/R also tells us that local pest, Jerry Droz, failed to get his nominating signatures to get on the ballot in the Eureka Mayor's race, but he still has time to make up the difference.

He could probably get the extra signatures fairly easily simply by hanging out in front of one of the local supermarkets. He just needs to be sure and pick one where people aren't likely to recognize him.

The Times- Standard reports a new face in the race for Arcata City Council. Nick Page, manager of the Humboldt Circus is making his first run for a seat. A somewhat offbeat campaign issue that he has, seems to me:

" ”It seems that new music venues don't get much support... Entertainment based business in general need more support. I think the city should do more to encourage those sorts of businesses.”

Then again, seems to me I've heard that complaint before in Arcata. I guess that just shows how culturally retarded I am. I've never paid attention to any of the entertainment news around here and I'd never even heard of the Humboldt Circus before. Or maybe I had, but just thought someone was referring to the Arcata City Council?

Why do local entertainers seek political office. Joel Agnew thought running for the mayorial position in Eureka would mean nothing more than ribbon cuttings and commencement addresses. T Great Razooly and now the Ringmaster from Humboldt Circus.
I guess if Arnold and Sonny Bono and Clint Eastwood can do it....anyone can. Oh yes, I forgot about Fred Gandy "Gopher" from The Love Boat.....oops...That guy from Death Valley Days comes to mind too. Ah, hell....Let's only allow entertainers and sports figures to run our fair cities. Hmmm...That would mean Dane Iorg for Blue Lake City Council and Captain Beefheart for Trinidad Mayor and Mike Patton from Faith No More for 4th district supervisor. Oh, and Willard Scott for Arcata City Council. (His daughter lives here)

More likely they can handle the public speaking, aren't afraid of the cameras.

Hey, Eeyore is a great guy and couldn't do any worse than the clowns we got on council. In reality since he manages clowns he already has the needed experience to run the entire city of Arcata.

So Nick Page is running on a platform for more concerts for garage bands?

You forgot to mention Fred Dalton Thompson on your celebrity/politico list.
