Into the Lion's Den...

A citizen stringer sent me an email about the Goleta Valley Chamber of Commerce luncheon today which featured the candidates for Goleta City Council going into the lion's den. It seems Council Member and Least Diplomatic "Team Member" Jack Hawxhurst left after his opening statement in protest to his car allegedly being "vandalized" last night at the Chamber of Commerce Candidate Forum.

Council Member Brock purportedly went on to point out that since there is no way her team will be receiving support from the Chamber -- she would say whatever she wanted. Brock who has a not so electable habit of frowning and rolling her eyes when her opponents are speaking did stay for the whole event.

I guess the council members had a bad week once they learned that $40,000 dollars has been dropped into the race from a big, bad developer and the Chamber's not-so-separate SCPAC.

Another citizen stringer let me know that last night's candidate forum will be televised on Cox Channel 8 from 12:00 pm Thursday and Friday of this week. It's worth watching as there are clear differences between the candidates.
