Barry Pruett, who handily lost his bid to unseat incumbent clerk-recorder Greg Diaz, provides limited disclosure about himself on his new blog for curious readers.
He forgot to mention:
•Barry’s wife is Kim Pruett, a local staffer for very conservative Congressman Tom McClintock. She also sits on the county’s Republican Central Committee.
•Barry lost the recent election to Diaz by a landslide.
•Barry is a vocal Republican.
To his credit, Barry does disclose that he is a “member” of the Tea Party Patriots — though it’s an understatement considering his vocal support for the group locally. And he does not go down the path of stating that he worked for a distributor of Apple Computer in Russia, as he did in the election. The background of R.U.I. Apple Computer is here.
So far, Barry has offered no insights to politics “inside” our county, as he promised. Rather, he is in an attack mode. The latest is here. On their blogs, very conservative bloggers Russ Steele and George Rebane report they are happily linking to Barry’s new blog. Enough said.
Here’s Barry’s biography, as stated on his blog:
“I grew up in the Midwest. In 1988, I attended the Ohio State University and transferred to Miami University in 1990. I graduated from Miami University in 1993 with a bachelor’s degree with majors in Russian Language and Diplomacy & Foreign Affairs. I also have a law degree from Valparaiso Univeristy. In 1998, we moved to this wonderful community to raise our daughters and ‘retire.’ Although I practice business and elder law here in Grass Valley, I am particularly fond of and spend my freetime reading about American Legal History and Constitutional Law. Even though I was indoctrinated to be an extreme liberal while attending undergrad, living in Russia and Czech Republic after college and owning a business in California turned me back to my midwestern, conservative roots. I am also a member of the Nevada County Tea Party Patriots.”
Gee, thanks: Plus ca change, plus c’est le meme chose.
