Local Solutions (LS) held an informal dinner/information gathering of community members of diverse political leanings to see where LS needs to focus their energies. I was surprised to see LS invite people who have had issues in the past (Me included. Why would I go to a party that would invite someone like me? Just joking!) with their processing. I was very encouraged to see them searching and analysing their disconnects to tighten up their Political Action Committee. I do see their organization as the most liberal/progressive movement happening locally. They have taken some lumps and criticism, but are reaching out for help in re-defining their objectives. They have had many huge victories in the local political front, and they are hoping to share their expertise in progressive causes. Candidates will have to be evaluated on an individual basis.
The day before, LS met with community members in Southern Humboldt and strategized the future 2nd District Supervisor race. No clear candidates yet.
