Local Political Stuff
The Eureka Reporter takes a look at the two candidates for 1st district, state assembly this morning. I was beginning to think Republican Jim Pell was a paper candidate only as he doesn't seem to even have a campaign web page. Since he at least went along with an interview with the Eureka Reporter, I guess we'll grant him slightly more than just paper candidate status.
More of the same from Wes Chesbro. I usually vote for the Republican in state level races if there's no Libertarian Party candidate running. If nothing else, the Democrats have a pretty much insurmountable majority in the state legislature. The closer we can even things out, the better off we will be. Gridlock is good.
In this case, I'll definitely be voting for Jim Pell, despite his silly letter- to- the- editor the other day. Unlike Patty Berg, Wes Chesbro was a relatively major player in bringing the state to the financial mess it's in today- he already having served at least two terms in the state senate back when they blew all the money from the dotcom boom. Jim Pell is clearly the only choice in that race.
