Democrat Of The Year. (DOTY)

What a well put together event. I was part of the set-up committee and was amazed at the orchestrated gathering of volunteers. (Great job by Way and Means chair Jamie O'Donnell and crew!) And what a great crowd showed up! Chesbro, Berg, Wiggins, Neely, Smith, Glass and other who's who in local politics. It was a festive, positive event overall. Except..........

Anti Abortion protesters showed up. My guess is because we were honoring Tina Mackenzie, the CEO of Six River Planned Parenthood. (Smart me) I am also against abortion...as a form of birth control. But I also believe it is the CHOICE of the woman involved. I can not stress enough the need for sex education! Without the education, what do you have? Ignorant teenagers playing roulette with their bodies in hope they won't get pregnant.

Tina was so humble in accepting her award. She kept referring to others. Sign of a good leader, giving credit to her support base. Reporter

Pete McCloskey as Democratic keynote speaker? Wow! Pete McCloskey Leaves Republican Party He could have conveyed in better fashion publicly why he converted to the Democratic Party. If he made one more reference of his good pal Cheney or his good pal Bush, I would not have been able to eat my meal! (Well, you know how I am with food, and the Hurricane Kate dinner was way good! Awesome!)

Just a really solid event. Good job by Milt Boyd and the Humboldt County Democratic Central Committee.

Good job on the set up Rich. Did the Grems give you the list of other things they need you to do before they DON'T endorse you again?

Wow Richard, way to pat yourself on the back.

If that's a great crowd then I'm glad I wasn't there. Sounds like those in attendance were nothing but a bunch of lazy politicians who are good at nothing but wasting my tax dollars.

Neely? Maybe some considered her to be the Dem of the year.

I saw Neely on Robin's endorsement list, and Chesbro too! How'd you pull that off? You sand dwellers are craftier than you seem.

Endorsements from those two may or may not be good.

Robin Marks not only ran radio ads for a minor school board race, she also ran TV ads. No wonder she won. Was it worth it? $$$ Richard, you are not nearly as working class as you pretend to be.
