Musgrave Goes For State Assembly
This just in from Arcata's, Ed Musgrave, via my West Coast Libertarians Yahoo Group:
I would like to announce my candidacy for the Libertarian nomination
for the 1st Assembly District,which covers the North North Coast from
Oregon to Santa Rosa.I am focusing like a laser beam on the CPS and
Juvenile Court.Within that beam, I am concentrating on the involuntary
separation of children from their brothers,sisters and parents.
Never met the guy, personally, or even spoken with him on the phone. Ed was one of three libertarians that ran for office back in the primary(?). He was the only one that lost, coming in third in some Arcata school district race.
Last I heard publicly from Ed was a letter in one of the local papers endorsing Arcata City Council candidate, Bobby Harris', call for a rent control ordinance- hardly a libertarian position to take.
Don't know that using Child Protective Service and Juvenile Court reform as an issue will get him anywhere. I guess we'll have to wait and see.
Quite frankly, I didn't want to deal with a State Assembly race this soon after the election. I'll give him credit for starting early, though.
