We’ve heard all about the big win in the Mike vs. Mike race for sheriff.
Everyone’s talking as if Mike Downey is the only candidate to have won with greater than 50% in a contested race. But he’s not. Joseph Mellett won the election for Humboldt County Auditor-Controller with a huge 68.77%!
What….is an auditor just not sexy enough for you people? Geez.
Well I, for one, want to acknowledge that kind of victory. Congratulations, Joe! Good luck with all those numbers and taxes and other things too horrible to imagine. You’ll do great!
