"That Hippy Liberal Marks won again?" Thank you to 4th District Dems. Bob Service in election tightrope.

Seems that I might have won another term as a member of the Humboldt County Democratic Central Committee (HCDCC). It is not official yet as I am only leading by 88 votes. So thank you to the Democrats in the 4th Supervisory District who voted for me. It is kind of a surprise since I did not campaign for this position. This race became a war between Progressives vs Moderates and I left themselves to fight for the positions.

This race has the Democratic Chair Bob Service up by 22 votes for the 4th and final position just ahead of Mario Fernandez. This is not unfamiliar territory for Bob as he was down by 4 votes after the Last count in 2008. There were 3,347 votes at the Final count in 2008 but then when all of the other votes came in the last count was 4,622 votes and Bob squeaked in by 14 votes. The Last Count for this election was 6,403 with a whopping 4,587 undervotes! So there could be well over 1,000 votes left to count for this race. So if I am passed at that final count, let me say congratulations to my opponents who ran a good clean campaign.

Anyways, I am humbled by the support of my fellow Eureka, Myrtletown, Samoa, Finntown and Fairhaven constituents. Thank you all!
