San Francisco Democratic County Central Committee had 51 people run for 24 seats and they spent over $500,000 in the race with Scott Wiener spending $70,000 himself. And 6 of the winners are on the SF Board of Supervisors! That means that if any county issues come before the central committee they will have to post a notice of a meeting of the BOS! That is some serious Democratic politicking.
In Humboldt County there were 10 contested seats for the Humboldt County Democrats and 17 candidates. Two members of the Humboldt BOS are also on the HCDCC. No candidates spent more than $1,000. (In my case no where near that.) But did the committee really change? Here is my take.
One seat open. How about Patrick Higgins?
So in my estimation, there are 14 Moderates and 8 Progressives on the current committee. It will be interesting on who the next Executive Board might be. It has been ruled by Progressives for years.
Should be an interesting meeting this Wednesday at 7pm. Bring the popcorn and maybe watch sparks and accusations fly! Hope the media is out to witness this.
