My Latest Letter Is In
Sent my latest letter in to the Times- Standard this morning. E- mailed it around 7:30 and was surprised to get a phone call from them just after 9am confirming I sent the letter. Wow! That was fast. Maybe it's because I work hard to keep my letters short.
Did they really need to call me? Doesn't anybody who is anybody around here know who I am and the kind of stuff I write?
I'll try and surprise you with the subject, but I'm sure my hard- hitting commentary won't be any surprise. I had second thoughts after I sent it. Not that I changed my mind on the issue. I just thought maybe a couple of other subjects might have been better.
I was thinking of maybe writing in support of Tom Lynch for 2nd Assembly District, or Charlie Bean for Ward 2, Eureka City Council. Too late now, unless they don't publish this one.
Tom Lynch is kind of iffy, as my support for him is only based on his feelings the state hasn't shown spending discipline and he's concerned about the public pension problems. That's something Chesbro is ill- equipped to deal with. My problem being I don't know much about his stand on other issues. Still, Lynch stands above Chesbro on those issues alone.
I've wrote elsewhere I don't see any big changes in the goings on in Eureka regardless of who wins the Ward 2 race. Eureka has pretty much moved along the same as long as I've lived here regardless of who sits on the city council. It would be nice to have the one person win in that race that's above the Left vs. Right, us vs. them squabble. Charlie Bean is clearly the one not involved in that fray so he should get the nod.
Too late to write those letters as you're only allowed one per months at the Times- Standard.
