For all their faults, some of Humboldt’s Supervisor’s like to party. And we can’t fault them for that. Besides, drunkenness is pretty much the only way we can explain most of the boneheaded decisions they make.
But we’ve caught wind over the last year or two about a particular Supervisor who just happens to like the sauce a wee bit too much apparently.
We’ll set the scene for you: a gathering of many County Supervisors from around the state, who all get together for some dinner and a drinks after a long day of meetings (presumably about doing things to benefit their area, wish our Supervisors took those lessons to heart.) One Supervisor, from Humboldt County, goes a little over board and ends up causing quite the scene – we’re talking crying, yelling, spilling the beans on personal problems, etc. – in front of their peers. And apparently, this lewd behavior was not just a one time thing.
When we first heard this, we brushed it off as an exaggeration. Plus, as devout Hard Lemonade enthusiasts, we also felt a little protective of a Supervisor’s right to throw one or two back.
Alas, in this day and age, even THC has to watch how much we imbibe, and that’s just because mom keeps getting mad at us for peeing in the corner of the basement.
So can you imagine just how wildly inappropriate and embarrassing it is for an elected official to go over the top and cause a scene in front of their peers? We’re talking about embarrassing for our county, by the way, as the Supervisor in question clearly has gotten over their hangups about being a drunken mess.
And, yeah, this is really more of a THC Pop Quiz than it is a Poll, because there is a correct answer here. But we’re curious just how widespread the reputation of our resident wino-Supervisor exactly is.
So, without further ado, please tell us:
Who’s the biggest lush on the Board of Supervisors?
