Local Solutions' 460 Campaign Statements

Fascinating. Big Donor. Ken Miller.

Funny. Donation to Ken MIller's Humboldt Watershed Council.

Wow. Big Donor. Michael Shellenberger.

Biggest surprise? No contribution from Richard Salzman. That's funny. he told KMUD listeners that he was SO impressed with this "grassroots" group that he was donating himself.

Maybe I'm missing something.

BUT....

You Eureka voters might note that most of these people trying to tell you who to vote for don't live anywhere near Eureka. And, for all their support of Measure T, these people don't have ANY trouble taking money, big money, from out of the area. And, David Cobb's column in the Times Standard is obviously just another tool for Local Solutions. The TS should suspend his column until after the election.

And Ester Saunoras, huge Gallegos donor, donating bigto Local Solutions, and now, Five Grand to Larry Glass... hmmm, what's the common denominator?

"...Glass' latest donors include restaurant owner George Clark at $500; Petrolia resident Ester Saunoras at $5,000; and real estate broker Donna Brown at $250..."
