Gallegos and Measure T joined at the hip.


Yet another potential conflict of interest for District Attorney Paul Gallegos. He is the poster child for Measure T - a Measure which bans "non-local" campaign contributions. It is about to be challenged. In fact a complaint has now been filed, and Gallegos will have to file suit over it. Against the McKinleyville Union School District for the campaign for a Bond Measure that would pay for renovation and construction of facilities.

What will he do? It is a lose-lose for him, as it pits him against teachers and parents on the one hand, and the "equal" dispensation of justice on the other.

Here's material from his campaign website:
