Gridlock Is Good?
I've said before that I like gridlock in government, at least most of the time. So, it came as a pleasant surprise to see the Humboldt County Association Of Governments once again in gridlock regarding allowing indian tribes representation in the HCAOG.
I'll admit that, despite not following the issue all that closely, I'm pretty much opposed to the tribes having a seat on the HCAOG. I think they have more than enough power already, albeit through the indian casinos which some claim isn't the same thing.
I'd figured that with Bonnie Neely giving Roger Rodoni the boot from the Association, and her taking his place, that would break the tie votes and the tribes would finally win. I'd never thought about Eureka Mayor, Virginia Bass, replacing Pete LeVallee on the board and voting against tribal membership.
Now we're back to square one, at least for now.
Good. Way to go, Virginia.
