Robin Arkley listed among top CA political donors

Eureka’s Robin P. Arkley II was listed as the 27th largest individual political donor  in a report by California Watch:


At $2 million and change he’s well below the top three, who gave $53 million, $23 million, and $17 million.  According to California Watch:

Arkley has given almost exclusively to Republican candidates, giving more than $1 million to the state Republican Party and at least $250,000 to committees supporting various propositions backed by former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger.

    So it’s of general interest when someone in the top fifty California political donors lives in our area. Don’t you agree?

    And yet he owes so many local contractors and consultants money. Priorities?

    These are legal and reported contributions California Watch is referring to. Locally we notice, strangely, his name rarely appears on donor list, could it be that he found away to control local politics without leaving his figure prints?

    He was the fourth largest contributor to schwarzenegger. Think of all the people who live in california…all the folks in palm springs, beverley hills, blackhawk, brentwood, marin…plenty of people with tons more money than our own local money monger…yet the guy who’s shipping our butchered forests off to china is the guy ranks among the most blatant brown nosers, forking over tons of cash to get his name on ‘the list’, so he can develop more, forest more, rake in even more money for him and his.

    Humboldt County is some of the last virgin territory in california…definitely the most beautiful, IMO. All the developers know it, all the real estate moguls know it, all the politicians know it…we are prime to set the perfect standard of future planning for the rest of the nation. WE HAVE TO PROTECT NATURAL OPEN SPACE IN HUMBOLDT. Let them keep paving the rest of the world, there appears to be no stopping that insanity just about everywhere else. Imagine all of humboldt being as revered as the most exotic getaways in the world…100 years from now. The only way to do that is to curb the bullshit now.
