Humboldt County Democratic Central Committee not much different than SF!
San Francisco Dems argue just like the our local HCDCC. Maybe more nasty. Here is a pretty good analogy by the SF writer:
Let me take a second on this “moderate” tag. Moderates in San Francisco are people who are liberal on social issues – like, frankly, 80 or 90 percent of the city – but conservative on economic issues. Conservative is the right word here: The moderates don’t typically support higher taxes on the rich and big business, don’t support development controls, are weak on tenant issues, don’t think that housing should be a right of all people and pretty much buy into what in the Clinton era we called neo-liberalism.
The progressives (who have economic policies more like the Democratic Party of FDR and Lyndon Johnson) and the moderates (who have economic policies more like the Democratic Party of Walter Shorenstein, Dianne Feinstein and Bill Clinton) have been fighting for decades over the future of a city where there aren’t a whole lot of Republicans.
But the Womens Democratic slate gets nasty.
Just refreshing to hear that we have alot in common with our neighbors to the south.
