OK. I am not a big Patty Berg fan. I think I have made that clear in the past. I feel she has not come anywhere close to the job Virginia Strom-Martin did in her 6 years at the 1st District Assembly helm. But my Sacramento lobbyist sources with local ties are blaming the Willits bypass failure at the feet of Patty. They said she underestimated the push from Southern California way too late to counteract the inevitable. (Her and Patricia Wiggins just found out on Tuesday?) Times-Standard Online - Berg sends out bulk e-mail urging residents to back Willits project We are talking about hundreds of jobs that were tied into this project also. Good paying jobs!
I think she has been way too busy with her assisted suicide bill that I think is going to die on the floor either way no matter how it is written. I really think her focus these last 5 years should have been toward diversifying our economic base by identifying all resources and maximizing our North Coast assets. Good riddance next year.
Who do you think Patty and Patty will blame? They ask working people on Tuesday to protest a vote on Wednesday. Man. Are these people living in the real world?
[UPDATE 7 p.m.] Ongoing Search for Man Swept Away on Trinity River - Reportedly the boat was found without him about a mile downstream.
