Bass district flip-flop redux
An old post focused on the legal home base of supervisor candidate Virginia Bass resurfaced in recent days.
As noted then, Bass was merrily pushing buttons in the voting booths of District 1 — without complaint — just like the neighbors in her ‘hood.
But in early 2009, Bass somehow convinced the elections office that she lives in District 4, while surrounding houses remain in District 1. Bass is now running for 4th District Supervisor.
Detailed maps of Humboldt’s district boundaries are not available online.
Perhaps a certain local political junkie *cough* John Osborn *cough* will hunt down the map that justifies her change in voter registration.
Bass switched Districts without changing houses, but her neighbors still vote in District 1. What is the justification and why did Bass stall complaints until she decided to run for 4th district office?
As it stands, Bass may be the only Eureka resident in recent years that has voted in multiple district elections without the headache of moving houses. It’s like musical chairs — but more corrupt.
