Vern can be a funny guy. I've been toying with renaming this blog "John and Ken's Blog" or maybe "Vern's fake 'John and Ken's Blog'."
Vern's guidance extends to the Area 7 SOCCCD trustee race:
Finally, and this is very disturbing – Word on the street is that the infamous John S Williams, whom we thought we’d driven off to Tampa after his tragicomically disastrous stint as Public Administrator – Public Guardian, is BACK for more pension money, trying to get back his old seat on this College Board. A dazzlingly diverse array of figures has united to try to stop that from happening – from Don Wagner and Todd Spitzer to Loretta Sanchez and Roy Bauer – and what they want you to do is VOTE FOR TIM JEMAL! I will have much more on this in a couple of days. Civilization hangs in the balance.Don’t know what the “more” is that Vern will be coming up with. Look forward to it.
Back about then, Todd Spitzer called me up and said that DtB was way ahead of everybody in covering the John Williams stuff—and related intrigues (Fuentes, the DA, et al.). Todd and I became phone buddies for a while there. He's the guy who encouraged me to pursue those complaints against Tom Fuentes with the FPPC. Sounds good, I said.
That last move didn't work out so well. Didn't hear much from my new pal after that.
