Droz Campaign: Quality or Quantity?

The Times- Standard's, James Faulk, suggests in today's paper that Eureka mayoral candidate, Jerry Droz, may be opting for quality rather than quanitity, citing a truck he saw in Henderson Center plastered with Droz For Mayor signs and stickers.

I'm not so sure about that. James must have missed all the Droz signs that went up yesterday. I'm not sure just how many of them there are but I saw a guy putting them up. At the time I didn't realize what they were. Where are they? Tacked to telephone poles like all those yard sale signs we're so used to seeing.

I noticed a guy putting something up on the telephone pole over at the Matteoli's yesterday morning. I thought it unusual because the guy was using a six foot step ladder to get his flier up higher than most would bother to. I also thought it a bit funny since as he was posting the flier, a Eureka cop pulled up to the stop sign next to him, seemed to look right at the guy, then drove off.

I thought posting fliers on telephone poles was illegal, or so I heard somewhere.

I didn't think much more of it until I went out this morning to put the garbage out for pickup. I noticed the telephone pole across Trinity Street from me had a big white flier on it. Then I noticed all the poles near my intersection had those fliers.

That piqued my interest again and, walking across the street to see what the fliers said, and noticed they were Droz for Eureka Mayor- Time for a change signs. Pretty simple: Legal size white paper with black lettering. Obviously cheaply and easily done on a home computer.

I wonder how widespread this is? I'll have to keep an eye out today to see how far they got with this.

Boy, with a low cost, grass- roots campaign like this, Bass and LeVallee better get cracking.

Every campaign needs comic relief. Thank God for Droz.

Maybe Droz will be Eureka's perpetual mayoral candidate? Kind of like the late Pat Paulsen's every four year run for the Presidency.

So will he be invited to participate in any debates?

I believe he was at that forum out in Samoa with LeVallee and Bass a week or so ago, whenever it was.

Droz is included and they say there will be more to come.

I attended LaVallee's campaign announcement at City Hall a couple of months ago, when Droz started screaming at him. He freaked me out. I looked at a couple of my friends and they quietly led Droz way from the crowd and talked to him to calm him down. It was good to see the police show up quickly.

Nonetheless, he put him self out to run, and as any person who does that ought be treated with respect, so should he. It's not a fun process, and he has been vilified more than most. Take his points, some are valid, and listen. treat him with respect you would wish to be treated with if you were running, long shot or not.

IMHO

I tend to like sincere people. Last night during the debate with LaVallee and Bass, Jerry came off as a sincere guy.

Not voting for him-just ended up liking him is all.

LaValle cut off , Droz at the Council meeting 3 weeks ago when Droz mentioned our Streets being dominated with homelessness . Droz may of interupted LaValle but at least he allowded him to finish his speech . Not too Kool for LaValle when he calls himself the peoples Mayor . The guy is a frigging liar 1 I AM VOTING FOR - JERRY DROZ .

Yes, it's time for a change! I saw one of the debates and honestly, I find all three candidates disturbing. Glad I don't reside in Eureka.
