Proactive: Allan Dollison arranges training for prosecutors

Allan Dollison has been involved with the Humboldt Meth Abuse Awareness Project. In watching the comments and posts of the group, it's become apparent to me that he is not just there for the PR value, but takes action where he sees a need. It doesn't appear to be just for the political gain, either. But I am glad to see he has posted this on his campaign's Facebook page:
"I am pleased to announce that I have successfully coordinated with the Statewide Drug Endangered Children Alliance for some great training for prosecutors, law enforcement, child and family services workers, health care workers and finally educators for Wednesday June 4. They have not been to Humboldt "in a long time" and all it took was an e-Mail and a phone call. This will be a great event for the county."Humboldt Meth Abuse Awareness Project
There's more on his own page, which I am swiping without permission, because rather than having Facebook purity tests, and gauges based on "LIKES," this is what we should be looking for from ALL of our candidates:
Ok great news. I just got off the phone with Margie Hensley from California Drug Endangered Children Alliance. It was a wonderful conversation. We have a tentative date of Wednesday, June 4, that they will be able to come up and do the training. It will last 8 hours. I suggested the audience might be up to 100 people. Training is free. No costs to pay for their travel. We are responsible for securing the venue, to include paying for it if we had to. I believe there are many facilities that would consider donating their location, so I have ideas about that. About 45 days prior, she will send out a flyer. I told her that addition to the standard routine law enforcement-centric audience, we will have educators and medical personnel in attendance. This will be an awesome event. All it took was an E-Mail and a follow-up phone call! Now let's start publicizing this!!!!
