After years of planning and scheming, it looks like all the efforts of Matthew Owens and Richard Marks to pack the Central Committee are going reap their intended result, or close to it. Owens and Marks are exploiting a loop hole in the by-laws that doesn’t require candidates who claim to be Democrats to actually have any Democratic values.
The idea was to get the coveted Democratic Central Committee endorsements for their pretend “democrat” candidates. (ie. Virginia Bass) If that plan fails, then to deny the endorsements to real Democrats.(Chris Kerrigan)
Liberal Jon says; Democracy on Display Wednesday Night – Warts and All.…… Most likely we already know what’s going to happen. Unfortunately, Virginia’s and/or Matthew and Richard’s strategy to define “Democrat” by their narrow definition* will have worked. They will have probably weighed the scale down enough so the HCDCC will not be able to endorse either Chris or Virginia.
Hi Humboldt County Democratic Central Committee Associates,
This is a note to remind you that next Wednesday April 9th at 7pm at the Labor Temple at 9th & E Streets, Eureka, we are having our endorsement meeting for all participating Democratic candidates for the Humboldt County June election. Each candidate will have an opportunity to speak and answer two questions from the voting members. Only voting members of the Committee will be able to participate in the endorsement vote, but we hope you will join us to hear our candidates speak and participate in the rest of the meeting.
Special Democratic Monthly Meeting at the Labor Temple: Wednesday April 9th, 7pm 840 E Street, Eureka.
The Examiner says show up and give Matthew and Richard a hard time.
Demand the members support Chris Kerrigan and Sharon Latour, the candidates with real Democratic values.
Or don’t show up and speak out and our local Democratic Party will reflect these values (see photo below)
