Remember Bobby Harris?
He landed in Arcata some years ago, pretty much destitute, and ended up staying for years. I know he wore out his welcome with the HSU Libertarian Club members pretty quickly but somehow he seemed to hang on and gather the interest of some to the point the North Coast Journal featured him in their cover story back in 2005.
I'd heard he'd left Arcata some time ago, heading for his old town of Woodland. I'd assumed he must have finally wore out his welcome with the rest of Arcata. Maybe not, though. The Sacramento Bee reports he's running for Woodland City Council. To hear it from them he's quite popular down there.
Don't know how true that is but not bad publicity for someone who's basically a transient.
