Concord Councilwoman Helen Allen, announced her 2010 reelection campaign for her Concord City Council seat yesterday. In addition, between puffs on a Virginia Slim long menthol, she also announced she will file papers to run for Sacramento Supervisor.
Asked about which district she actually resides in, Allen’s jewelry quipped, “Rules? Just like that nice man on TV said, ‘We just make them up as we go along.’” For years Allen has pretended her residency was in Concord while paying property taxes for her true residence in Sacramento County.
“All I need is one more shot at some crucial vote so I can ring up that last favor that will get me a kush State Commission appointment,” explained Allen’s 50′s faux bouffant hairdo. Interrupting herself, Allen’s gold lipstick added, “Anything would do as long as it paid good money with health benefits, and I didn’t have to show up. Wanna see my scar?”
