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.
