Bass in the 4th, sez Reporta
Local indy journalist John Osborn heeded the call by this blog to investigate how it was that Mayor Virginia Bass moved from the 1st to the 4th County District without changing houses.
According to Osborn, a GIS system improperly placed Bass in the 1st District after her house was built.
[T]he system placed her in the First District, more specifically the west side of district 1E-41. It turns out her residence is actually in 4E-25…
[T]he Elections office investigated the matter, calling in Humboldt County Surveyor Dave Ryan to find out the specifics. The results of the investigation showed that Bass clearly lived in the Fourth District.
Thanks for the report, John.
