2014 Campaign Season Begins?
I was out in the garage yesterday afternoon when some younger fellow came walking past the house with a bag of flyers over his shoulder. He looked at a stack of papers he was carrying, came to me and said he was looking for either me or the wife. That was a voter registration list he was carrying, as I suspected.
He asked me if I'd heard of this Mike McGuire guy that's running for state senate and gave me one of the fliers. He rattled off some supposed endorsements and even claimed the Eureka City Council had endorsed him. After I thanked him for the flier he headed on up the street.
Hard to believe the Eureka City Council would have endorsed the guy, especially this early in the game. Besides, I don't know that the city council endorses candidates, do they? They might endorse as individual council members, but not as a group. If they did endorse as a group, I'd find that highly inappropriate. It's not mentioned on the flier, or his campaign web site, at least not yet.
Regardless, I wouldn't vote for this McGuire fellow anyway.
