I like that idea humboldtrick, and I would even take it a step further and say that we are each individually our own ACLU. If it gets down to it you need to advocate for yourself if you feel that your constitutional rights are not being respected by individuals or organizations that like to interpret laws how they see fit. I can easily see the ACLU being taken over in a clandestine move the way certain right leaning individuals tried to take over the HCDCC here. Sounds like the national strategy needs some revamping and perhaps a change in leadership.
Previous Evergreen Vice President and current Humboldt County supervisor Rex Bohn might be able to shed some light on why the Harbor District is undertaking the cleanup. Just wondering if my dock space rent is helping to pay for this or is it on the taxpayer's dime. A little transparency would be welcome here........
Kudos to Marcy Burstiner for pursuing transparency and open government. It is a shame that so many in local politics think nothing of violating the Brown Act while others try to manipulate the system by pretending to be of a different political persuasion than they really are and then when in office pushing the agenda of the interests that bankrolled their campaigns. The cynical trash that runs these hypocritical campaigns are anti democratic and need to be exposed and shown the light of day. Make your case out in the open and let the public decide, the “good old boy” back room dealing days need to be relegated to the past again.
