I thought readers would enjoy more “astute” commentary from Chris Jones, Sue Horne’s paid political consultant from outside the county over on mucho conservative Russ Steele’s blog. I thought Chris was easing up, but he just can’t resist himself — and I’m not even in the race. It’s supposed to be Sue against Rolf Kleinhans for the nonpartisan job of county assessor.
This is what Sue is getting for $4,500 — an education for all of us in today’s world of bare-knuckle politics, for an assessor, no less. The background on Chris (and his reputation for negative campaigning) is here and here.
My goodness, I’ve had people like Bill Gates get mad at me over the years: A guy like Chris Jones is a flea bite on the you know what. Good luck with your campaign, Chris.
Here you go:
Thank you for the thoughtful, fact-based posts on your blog. They are a refreshing contrast to the idiotic and emotional garbage that is routinely spewed out by Mr. Pelline and comrades (Enos, Baja, etc.) on the Pelline echo chamber — err, I mean blog.
Sue Horne is a 3-time election winner in Nevada County. She will win again on June 8.
Keep up the great work Russ!
And just when I thought you were going to be civilized. I knew it couldn’t last. You sound very desperate.
People who comment on my blog also include moderate Republicans, such as Nevada County Supervisor Nate Beason and Auburn Council Member Mike Holmes in Placer County.
Are you going to vote for Sue for assessor? Oh, I forgot, you can’t. You don’t even live here.
You are building an outstanding reputation in our county as a mudslinging, paid political consultant.
If Sue loses, she’ll have you to blame. If she wins, it was based on her name recognition – and in spite of “supporters” like you.
I’d be sweating it out if your goal is to land any more business up here.
