Pot Lobbying Group To Host Humboldt County District Attorney Paul Gallegos Fundraiser
Humboldt County District Attorney Paul Gallegos is still looking to pay off some campaign debt
Humboldt County District Attorney Paul Gallegos is still looking to pay off some campaign debt and hopes to get a lot of help Wednesday at a pricey Sacramento fundraiser sponsored by a medical marijuana lobbying organization. According to campaign disclosure forms filed with the Humboldt County Elections Office, Gallegos left the November 2010 campaign cycle — which saw him best challenger Allison Jackson to retain his office — with $41,000 in outstanding loans, including $26,000 owed to his wife, local attorney Joan Gallegos.
Enter the California Cannabis Business League, a nonprofit trade association representing the state’s the medical cannabis industry with a focus on job creation, public safety and community wellness. Mostly, however, the group’s express purpose is to lobby on behalf of its members’ business interests, according to President Max Del Real.
