Al Pettit is running a write-in campaign for Coos Bay City Council and The World has given him a leg up with a nice story all about his transformation from IT to motorcycle salesman. The paper includes a quote from Eric Farm. ““Al has strong analytic abilities and is able to sort and get to the problem in a logical fashion.” Farm, being on the port commission, has no credibility anyway, but Pettit has arrived at some very illogical, purely ideological conclusions in the recent past. Not to mention he hangs with a crowd that doesn’t even understand simple math.
Pettit can be also be very impolitic. Remember when he characterized public employees as parasites in the Register Guard. Coos Bay, on the other hand, four years on, cannot even pass a simple wind ordinance so the pro-gas Pettit ought to fit in perfectly.
