Progressive Thoughts from San Diego Alums on Law, Politics, and Culture

Palin v. San Carlos

Posted by brightcoast on November 15, 2009

how exciting for such a small town. Definitely surprising to hear that Republicans are only 1/5 registered voters. ETA: The article states that San Mateo County that has this registration ratio–which I think does not accurately reflect San Carlos’s demographic. There has either been a shake up on the City Council, or the case really isn’t about the usual party politics, or even necessarily Palin herself, but rather “the City of Good Living.” (If I remember the motto correctly). Shall be interesting to see if this fight makes its way through federal court. However, if they haven’t allowed billboards for the past 10 years, it seems unlikely some commercial interest can force them to make an exception to erect a new one.
