I took Austin Allison's sister's offer up to share her facebook post about contributions from out of the area
So Austin Allison needs contributions from out of the area?
Linda Atkins, North Coast People's alliance and all those "local" backers could not garner enough support locally?
Just like Austin Allison changed his facebook to state living in Eureka, after that was pointed in comments; let's see how fast this profile gets switched to private. Text included below.
Sally Allison DeLeon, who lives in Colorado, shared this on her facebook:
PLEASE FEEL FREE TO SHARE 😀🇺🇸
This is my brother, Austin Allison. He is running for Eureka City Council! He's been involved in organizing a union at the hospital he's worked for the past 6 years fighting for fair wages and safer nurse/patient ratios. He is the ideal advocate for the working families of his community, giving a voice to those who normally don't have one. PLEASE spread the word to anyone you know in the Eureka, CA area to get out and VOTE! ✅
Austin Allison for Eureka City Council!! 💙🇺🇸
If you don't live in the area but would still like to support his campaign, you can send all contributions to:
"Austin for City Council"
1602 Hodgson Street
Eureka, CA 95503
And who recruited Austin Allison?
According to this facebook post, Allen McCloskey and the same people backing Allen McCloskey. I don't see comments on social media complaining about this last minute filing.
Text of that post which was from August 17:
URGENT - Our only progressive candidate for Eureka City Council has to back out due to health concerns. Allen has recruited a replacement candidate, Austin Allison. We need signatures from registered Eureka voters between now and 5:00 TODAY to get him on the ballot - please go to the lobby at city hall if you can sign, and/or help spread the word! - Tamara
By the way, Austin, you have no telephone number to contact you. That business card I gave you for that written statement never got emailed. Do your "supporters" tell you to only talk to select media sources they approve of?
