Local Political ball keeps bouncing! Who's on first?

Looks like Mike Thompson is still a top contender to head Interior. Thompson may be appointed by President Elect Barack Obama soon. But then what happens locally? The governor will ask for a special election for the 1st Congressional District. Leading contender for that position will most likely be 1st District elect Assembly person Wesley Chesbro. He is the most high profile viable candidate, but I am sure others will be shaken from the woodwork.

Who will take over for Wes? If an election is held for this seat, I am sure there will be plenty of contenders. I have already heard Chris Kerrigan's name brought up and I am sure others are chomping at the bit.

As far as replacing Frank Jager of the Humboldt County Coroners Office, the BOS has decided to have the Humboldt County Sheriff's Office, specifically Sherrif Gary Philp fill the position.

In the Northern Humboldt Union High School District, one position on the board is needed to be filled now that recently elected City Council member Shane Brinton has taken office. Who might be in the running for this position? Mike Harvey, Ross Miller and Dan Johnson are possibilities.

Looks like the Anti's are going after John Wooley's seat on the NCRA. Seems they don't want Woolley's recommendation, Former Assemblyman Dan Hauser. Presumably they don't want anyone who cares about the railroad.

I guess Dan isn't allowed in the musical chairs game. What'd he do to piss 'em off? Oh. Yeah. He spoke up.

No. He proved incompetent at running the railroad.

It's Woolley's game (and recommendation). If anyone's playing musical chairs it's him and Hauser.

So is Rose now promoting the musical chairs game?

Rose said...

Nope.

If someone of Rose's class and smarts were to replace cheese for brains then Cali just might have a chance at a positive future. Anybody who would mention kerrigan needs their head banged with THE BIG RED HAMMER!

Wooley's loss of popularity and his declining to run is directly connected to his performance on the NCRA board.

Its ridiculous to serioulsly consider Wooley's replacement recommendation for a position that he didn't perform to voter's expectations.

Yes,your EPIC,baykeeper,NEC,HCDCC,earth first gang of extorianests have a firm hand here in good old socialist peoples republic of Arcata. Wooley will do better in Santa Rosa area where you nuts don't run the show. There are other nuts there but at least a few of them know you really do need an economy.

Wooley moving to Santa Rosa? Must have a gig with the NWP.
