Virtual Candidacies

Posted By on Wed, Feb 27, 2008 at 2:42 PM

Most everyone up here in the Third Supervisorial district is keeping coy. You've got activist Mark Lovelace, Bay District Commissioner Mike Wilson and former Arcata City Councilmember Elizabeth Conner each saying that they are currently "seriously considering" a run for the Board of Supervisors seat being vacated by John Woolley. Only current Arcata City Councilmember Paul Pitino has verified that he's definitely charging ahead.

Behind the scenes, of course, things are already in motion. As we pointed out a couple of weeks ago, Wilson's people have snapped up two Internet domain names: mikeforsupervisor.org and wilsonforsupervisor.com. Now, the Blogthing's personal DNS troll, a member of our MVP Reader Team, notes that Conner got into the game shortly after we posted the item above.

Here's the record:

domain: elizabethforsupervisor.com
created: 13-Feb-2008
last-changed: 13-Feb-2008
registration-expiration: 13-Feb-2009

registrant-firstname: John
registrant-lastname: Graves
registrant-organization: J.Garland Communications
registrant-street1: 2649 Terrace AVE
registrant-pcode: 95521
registrant-state: CA
registrant-city: Arcata


What does this information tell us, except for the obvious fact that Conner has wooed veteran Arcata campaignmaster John Graves into her corner? Well, click on through to elizabethforsupervisor.com. What do you see? That's right: Whereas mikeforsupervisor.org is hosted by the eco-groovy company Sustainable Hosting, Conner's is up at the big bad Wal-Mart of the web world, 1&1 Internet.

Round one: Wilson.
