One of two progressive candidates running against Rex. Clif is a very good guy and I look forward to his thoughts for the County. It is a steep uphill climb in the county’s most conservative district against a popular incumbent. But as the saying goes, if you don’t have someone on the ballot then you’ve already lost.
Also, don’t worry about progressive candidates splitting the vote. It doesn’t work that way with the Supervisor elections. If one of the candidates gets over 50 percent in the primary, he’s won anyway regardless of the breakdown of the other votes. If the lead candidate gets 49 percent or less, he will run against the next highest vote recipient in the November election. Unless someone runs a write-in campaign for the November election (very poorly written ordinance to allow for that, but it happened in the Second District in 2008 when Cliff Clendenen won in November with a mere plurality). So having two candidates mostly going at Rex is not necessarily a bad thing.
Rex is strong, but he’s not invincible. He’s burned a few bridges. Looking forward to spirited campaigns in the First and Second Districts each of which currently have three candidates (deadline is November, but it’s already late for fundraising). So far no declared opponent for Mike Wilson in the Third District. Can’t see anyone defeating him in the mostly-Arcata District anyway.
