Daraka Larimore Hall, longtime head of the Santa Barbara Democratic Central Committee, was elected to the statewide party’s executive committee, winning his bid to become party secretary this weekend by a wide margin. Larimore Hall is the first Santa Barbaran — or Central Coast representative — to sit on the committee since anyone can remember. He credited this with the strong support he picked up from many of the smaller, more rural, and conservative counties — ironic given Larimore Hall’s outspokenly progressive agenda. Larimore Hall also enjoyed strong support from Assemblymember Das Williams and received $500 from County Supervisor Salud Carbajal. Famous in party circles for not having a driver’s license until last year, Larimore Hall, 37, said he crisscrossed the state using mass transit without difficulty. His new position is not paid, and he intends to remain fully engaged with the Santa Barbara central committee.

Do most people realize what a meat head this guy is?
"Famous in party circles for not having a driver’s license until last year, Larimore Hall, 37, said he crisscrossed the state using mass transit without difficulty." Seriously? That is his claim to fame that he has so little to do with his life that he can spend days and weeks on mass transit doing what can be done in hours with a car? Maybe I will walk to Colorado just to prove that my "personal transit devices", er, uh my feet, are perfectly serviceable and non polluting. I'll report back when I arrive there in 4 or 5 months...

I'd only believe that if someone would never need to relieve themselves along the way.

$500 from Carbajal was at one time $1000 from Caruso.

Let's hope he leaves the state Democratic party in shatters, just like he divided and destroyed the local Democratic party.
