Hank on the Arkley Public Records Request
Hybrid media blogger Hank Sims analyzes Rob Arkley’s Public Records Request seeking dirt on his enemies list, including the Humboldt Herald.
[T]he [Arkley] request is aimed at uncovering who in county government did the dastardly deed of distributing a public document. On March 31, Sacramento lobbyist Kay Backer – the public face and possibly the sole surviving member of Humboldt Economic & Land Plan (HELP), a conservative “group” – wrote county supervisors and top staff with the au courant plea to slow down the general plan update process, which is over a decade old. (Ostensibly, the rationale for this is to allow for more citizen input; actually, it is to delay things until after the next election.) Backer’s letter, full of Tea Partyesque hyperbole and poor grammar, was gleefully published on the Humboldt Herald April 4.
Hank also offers unsolicited advice on how Arkley can cast a wider net. Thanks, dude !
