Larry Hourany Ph.D is back, sans the Ph.D this time - and he is upset that the business community isn't supporting his job-killing buddy Pat Higgins. Therefore they become evil developers, and their money is tainted.
He says he read James Faulk's "informative article" and says he will be working "with the Humboldt County Democratic Central Committee to see if there is a solution to local campaign finance reform."
NO MENTION of the ten grand Bonnie Neely got from an out of area developer, a really big one at that. A great big glaring omission there. No mention of huge donations from Bill Pierson, who depends on her to block his competition. Presumably, Hourany supports THAT.
No recognition of the fact that local businesspeople have a right to support the candidates they believe will best represent the interests of the business community - i.e., NOT the job-killers. It looks like they have decided to stand up and fight back. He sees this as 'white hot propaganda' - owwww, it burnnnnnssss!
Pat Higgins didn't make his bed, he climbed in with the "progressives" and now he has to accept the consequences.
It's sad for him that his "progressive" buddies, who were oh so supportive in their efforts to get him on the Harbor Commission, have now abandoned him. He may feel he has earned the right to move up the chain, Harbor Commissioner was supposed to be a nice boost to his resume, after all. What he didn't realize is, they are not his friends, and were only using him to secure a place on the Harbor Commission, a trustworthy "progressive" vote against all business development in Humboldt County. He's out of line expecting them to give up that seat to let him move up. They have another chosen one to place in the Supervisor seat.
