Where is "Local Solutions"?

Following posts that contradicted denials that "Local Solutions" had anything to do with Richard Salzman, Michael Twombly disappeared, and "Local Solutions" disappeared. All e-mails coming from their listserve started coming from "Redwood Progressive," AKA Richard Salzman.

"Local Solutions, the liberal political action committee, has so far given nothing to any candidates in this election cycle.

Has the money just dried up? Or is it now being funneled into Salzman's "CREG," "Redwood Progressive," or the latest, "Eureka Civic Association."

Does it kind of remind you of Star Wars, when Darth Vader keeps getting new Generals?

Local Solutions has NEVER had money to give to campaigns, heck, Dennis Huber had to make a personal loan to the group earlier this year to keep them solvant. What they bring is the Salzman email list and some warm bodies to phone bank or door knock.

What has Paul Gallegos given to the county ? "Justice for all" ? Not hardly. PG has given us;

the most liberal 215 marijuana guidelines in the state, and all the crime and riff raft that goes along with it.

a real life example of what "plagiarism" is.

suspicion of corruption, taking $10,000 from Bowman and then giving his (felon) kid a sweetheart deal.

put Yougofree.com in charge of child abuse/sex cases.

fired the most expirianced prosecutor in N. Cal.

failed to file charges on the outrageous animal abuse case.

got hurt in a surfing acident when he told his staff he was going home sick !

hired Tim Stoen, of Jonestown Massacre fame, and let him run amok.

and he has given extra sweet plea bargains, or dismissed more cases, than Farmer did in the previous 10 years.

reduced the DA's office to almost complete ineffectiveness, as in most of the good (veteran) DDA's left or were fired and now all he can attract is LOSER ex-defense attorneys. Gallegos has not hired ONE prosecutor, other than Tim Stoen and Stoen has NEVER in his career won a jury trial.... NEVER.

am I forgetting the main points?

Oh yes, I forgot that he has underminded law enforcement and destroyed any working relationship.

Justice for ..... WHO ?

do not forget !

That's why it is necessary to create all these phony groups to bolster his image, and keep the public from seeing the decimation.

Mostly what they offer is their GOTV campaign, usually involving phone banking but also door hangers. Not sure what they have going this season.

Eric my boy. What say you about your pal's latest hire ? I know that you know this is close to the bottom of the barrel ! Are you going to defend PG ? Of course you will, but it will be in vain.

Eric V. Kirk said...

Already wrote about it. Why don't you read it for yourself?

Eric wrote, "A good find." For somebody with 16 charges and multiple suspensions from the state bar!

I hope Gallegos is paying you well as his PR man because you're really stretching it thin!
