Rex Bohn has reportedly taken one for the team and withdrawn from the Eureka City Council appointment process. Ron Pierre is still in the hunt, and Jeff Lamoree is as well.
The likable Lamoree has been the president of the Sequoia Zoo Foundation for many years, although the Times-Standard reports he plans to step down from that role at the end of the year.
The T-S also says Lamoree reported being “encouraged” to apply for the seat. We might describe it more like being drafted, but no point niggling over terminology.
This one’s a no-brainer for us. Forget ideology. Forget partisanship. Forget everything except this: A man no one likes vs. a man everyone loves.
The only thing better than a Lamoree appointment would be a grip of hot chicks and a PBR kegerator at council meetings.
Try not to screw this one up, guys.
