TS Balloon Track poll

While it's certainly less scientific on its face than the HBC poll, the numbers are closer to what I would expect in an accurate poll. I do agree that the "pressure" question is a little odd.

But I suspect that of those who have made up their minds, the pro-Marina Project folk outnumber the anti by about 3 to 2, with a large undecided factor which would incorporate more potential opponents than supporters. I would number among the "undecided" at this point, and I would probably vote the progressive slate in any case because I do believe in what has been termed "public process." However, Brian Morrissey did make some very persuasive arguments in my meeting with him, and if they got that presentation around they may even have persuaded some of the bleeding hearts. If the poll is accurate, it'll be interesting to see how it translates into votes next Tuesday.

Tomorrow I'm hoping to meet with Mark Lovelace who's asked for equal time. Maybe I need to invite players from each side to a radio show.

Comments:
when you meet with mark, tell him goodbye...he has lost on this one.

We'll find out soon enough.
 
Please schedule plenty of time for Lovelace. He has loads of relevant and fascinating information.

Ask him about the differences between planning and permitting processes.
 
Eric just reading your posts over the last month-you don't come off as very 'undecided' and voting from Redway for the 'Progressives' is another tipoff...
 
Examples?
 
what about the open thread on the Toobey ranch ? Why did you pull it Eric? It is true you were pressured ?
 
It's around brainchild! Call up the October archives and look for it yourself.

For crying out loud!
 
Tooby or not Tooby. That is the question.
 
Kay. I shouldn't have hit the publish button so quickly. Sorry.
 
"If the poll is accurate, it'll be interesting to see how it translates into votes next Tuesday.".

The wild card here is whether people will be voting along the lines of Balloon Tract vs. who support or doesn't support Marina Center.

I've long said that's the big issue and is what I'm taking into consideration, but of all the people that show up to vote, will that be their main issue?

I would have thought so, but I run into people on occasion, Jerry Droz being one of them, who didn't seem to be concerned on way or the other on the issue.

Heck, I'm sure there are some people that will vote for whomever they feel has the most yard signs out, or other odd reasons. I just wonder how many people feel the Marina Center is the main issue.

I realize most on the blogs feel that's a big issue, but that's our limited social circle. I don't know how the rest of the world compares to our social circles.

Another sign that Droz is a little out of touch with the voters?

Heraldo - not to mention the rest of reality.
 
I was trying to tread lightly.
 
Did you meet with Lovelace?
 
Yup. Good guy, with a whole lot of information. I begged him to put his presentation up on the Internet. I still have some questions, and he gave me some reading materials to digest, but he raised some excellent questions himself.

I'll post something about it before I go to bed and follow up with more detail later.
 
Mark is a good guy.
 
Not to watersheds, he isn't. He's bad news because he, along with his Humboldt Watershed Council buddy, Ken Miller, and EPIC, all "good guys" in Progressive activist land, are responsible for diverting environmental protection information away from the watersheds that need it the most--watersheds damaged by homestead subdivisions.

So, in environmental protection terms, in terms of attacking the financial support means of Humboldt working families in the timber industry while not only letting but using money from homestead contributions makes Mark in my book, not the "good guy", but one of the most glaring hypocrites in the Progressive Political Machine.
 
Mark, I highly suspect, like eric here, is positioning himself for a run at public office, hence the political schmoozing that we see going on between Progs seeking power positions in the community.

Mark my words..
