...The board decided to discuss and vote on each candidate in succession, and unanimously voted to send the names of all the candidates, except Lovelace and Farley.Remember - As part of the the scorched earth pursuit of an agenda, Lovelace is the man who hounded and badgered Tom Herman and Roger Rodoni - and hounded and badgered John Campbell to his death.
A majority of the few members of the public who spoke -- there were fewer than 10 people in attendance -- opposed sending Lovelace's name and spoke of Bass's consensus building skills, Zanzi's experience with the California Department Fish and Game and Farley's experience on the Ferndale Planning Commission. The board was even told of two petitions, totaling roughly 900 signatures, in opposition to Lovelace, gathered within 24 hours.
”I believe that he (Lovelace) is divisive and he is out of touch with the county,” said Bob Morris, with Humboldt Coalition for Property Rights (CPR)....
It remains unknown whether he is behind the Humboldt Herald, though many suspect he is. If he is, then his pursuit of political opponents goes on. If he isn't behind it, and knows who it is, he allows it to go on.
Divisive doesn't even begin to cover it.
And remember: The criticism about Mark needing to attend to needs of his district are fair - he needs to look no further than "community development services" (The Planning Department) and the mess they have made of the general plan process - Last May, he set a time frame, supported by the BOS to bring the completed General Plan to the Board of Supervisors by October of last year, and yet still another six months has passed with no word from Kirk Girard, and communities are becoming increasingly agitated.
Forget the Coastal Commission - clean up the County's house.
