Lovelace to face Tea Partier in 2012
Humboldt County Supervisor Mark Lovelace will face Republican Karen Brooks in his race for re-election next year, reports the Lost Coast Outpost.
Brooks ran (and lost) against Wesley Chesbro in the 2010 election for the California Assembly.
Looking back through press releases and emails received during that campaign it’s clear Brooks would like to see Humboldt County bent over a barrel when it comes to control over our water. She seems to believe water from the Klamath and Trinity rivers should be sent to the Central Valley without delay.
“California needs a water policy that does not focus on conservation only,” she said on her campaign website. “Conservation only prolongs the inevitable.”
Translation? Humboldt is going to lose any fight over its richest resource, so let’s give up as quickly as possible.
Sounds like a leader. Not.
