I just love it when people go on non stop ugly rants but don't sign their names. Who, for example, is Stephen1? The thing about these spittle covered blasts is that they so rarely have their facts together. Example: Dan Johnson was only faulted for his plagiarism and his attitude problems because he is a Republican. Oh, my, the mind boggles....
Thank you, Judy Hodgson, for once again telling it like it is. I have researched the campaign finances that put The Gang Of Four in office and what you say about who/what put them in office is spot on. This is becoming a terrifying scenario for the future of Humboldt County. The damage that this gang can do/is doing is enormous. I am proud of the fact that it was I who originally dubbed them The Gang Of Four because that is what they are, a gang of bullies who are riding rough shod over the will and wish of the people. It is critically important that Sundberg and Bass are replaced. I will work hard for anyone with integrity who runs.
This is a wonderful and timely response to Arkleys ugliness. I can't wait to see a copy. Congratulations to all who accomplished this.
This is so disgusting, it's a takeover of the counties future by a bunch of bought and paid for supervisors. I've been going over their campaign contributions and they are, indeed, wholly owned subsidiaries of the timber, construction, contractors, realtors, trucker companies and more and they're paying their pimps well. A pox on them.
What is most disturbing about this situation to me and to many people is that neither Dan nor his supporters seem to get is that this is not just about plagiarism. Because of Dans inability to acknowledge that he did something wrong in a fulsome manner with no provisos/exceptions he left people not only feeling slapped but he also made it quite clear that he did not get the gravity of what he did. His so-called apology was an insult. He then, after 3 months, finally came to a school board meeting and was, once again, accusatory and insulting. Nothing he has said so far gives any indication that he understands that he was acting while wearing the hat of a school board member, that, in fact, he took advantage of that position to be able to get up on stage and read a speech and that in that role he committed a blatant act of plagiarism after clearly claiming that he had written the speech he was about to give. He has demonstrated over and over again that he has no moral compass, that he does not value integrity. In fact, it's clear to me that if he reads what I just wrote he will not get it. He's simply missing that component, that part. This has nothing to do with politics, with whether his critics or supporters are left or right leaning, this has to do with a person in a leadership position , particularly one that is about children, who acted in a far from exemplary manner and does not get it. That he hasn't even looked up the meaning of the word plagiarism says a great deal about Dan. That he lied about law suits says even more, and of course he did lie because it defies credibility to claim he forgot about all the law suits he has been involved in. The language that he freely used when being interviewed says more. The composite picture isn't pretty. It's sad that his children are in the position of defending him because that means that they may grow up and have the same attitudes and lack of a moral compass that he has. No, Fred, Johnson is not a stand up guy and he should step down from the board because he is not a fit model for the children for whom the board is responsible.
Richmond has been a piece of right wing mediocrity who crowned his pathetic record here by creating the insulting new look to the campus. Good riddance and here's hoping for someone even a tad better.
Good job Ryan. I hope that MANY people will turn out for this meeting. I will definitely be there.
