Local Solutions and HCDCC in Cahoots?
You sure would think so by many anonymous bloggers out there who label any liberal progressive candidates as being joined at the hip with Local Solutions (LS) and the Humboldt County Democratic Central Committee (HCDCC). While the HCDCC may agree with LS on some of the same candidates, such as Mark Lovelace recently, that is not necessarily the rule. In the 2nd District Supervisor race, LS is backing Clif Clendenen and the HCDCC has endorsed Estelle Fennell for this upcoming election. We may have similar philosophies, but the main purpose for the HCDCC is to get Democrats elected, while the LS supports their defined best "progressive" candidate, regardless of party affiliation. Hope that clears it up somewhat.
