Below the line came in one of our in boxes. It was from Yost and Yost's campaign manager, but according to them, it was sent out in their independent capacity as board members of a "California non-profit public benefit corp".
They also say the city made an official determination that these election signs are not campaign signs. Cool.
The LB does not condone the disbursement of ANY signs on city property.
What if Jerome ran a non-profit, cough cough, like We Love Encinitas and put out Dump Barth signs, and collected a lot of money not reported on his forms, or collected over $1000 and didn't file, or organized a non-profit but used it primarily for campaigning? What if Jerome sent out an email saying what hours code enforcement and public works was off duty? Yost and Aronin were asked if they wanted this posted and the answer was yes.
Dump Stocks Campaign Status Report
It's looking good! We've got Stocks on the run!
But, we can't let up now. We need to do all we can before election day.
1. DUMP STOCKS Yard Signs
We still have about 40 signs available. We need people willing to put them up Friday evening.
A couple of thoughts: Signs put up on city-owned public spaces Friday evening won't be removed until Monday at the earliest - maintenance employees don't work over the weekend. And, signs placed curbside along shopping centers Friday evening are unlikely to be removed over the weekend, for the same reason. (Encinitas Neighbors doesn't condone either action).
If you can help get these signs up, they can be picked up anytime from my front porch:
Let's make sure we get every sign up!
2. DUMP STOCKS Mailing
We're planning to put out a DUMP STOCKS mailing to target neighborhoods where they're likely to have an impact. We need to raise $1250 by Friday. The mailing will be delivered to the post office Saturday and delivered Monday. We'll mail as many pieces as we've raised money for.
If you can help: Contributions can be made via the DUMPSTOCKS website - www.DUMPSTOCKS.org.
Or, send a check made payable to "Encinitas Neighbors" and send it to
PO Box 232426
Encinitas, CFA 92023-2426
We can do it! See you at the the DUMP STOCKS celebration!

Apparently, not as many people as expected wanted Dump Stocks signs.
If this way of setting up campaign funds/expenditures is fine for the anti-Jerome
crowd, please don't crow when there is just an implied appearance of
Jerome doing the same. In this case it is not just apparent. It is
