Dozens pack Board of Supervisors in Protest over Settlement of Measure T

Today, about 50 people turned out to voice dissent over the Humboldt County Board of Supervisors decision to settle with opponents of Measure T. Measure T was passed by 55 percent of the vote here in Humboldt County California. Measure T seeks to keep corporations outside of the county from influencing local county elections.

David Cobb of Democracy Unlimited of Humboldt County said that 35 people spoke out against the decision by the Board of Supervisors and another 15 people didn't want to speak but were there to support of the measure. Cobb said that only 2 persons (not corporations), (or maybe they were), spoke out in favor of settlement. Measure T says that corporations are not persons and therefore don't have the same rights under the law as citizens do.
