Nicholas Blake announced today that he has signed a “lease” (WTF?) with Ares Macrotechnology for one of the abandoned office buildings on the north end of the old Microsoft Campus. Plans are to use the facility for his campaign headquarters and as a center of operation for the ever growing Peoples Militia. When ask why he would bother to secure a lease for an abandoned building he replied that he wanted everything to be “done the right way”. Peoples Militia squads began clearing out the local squatters immediately after the deal was announced. Rumor is that the lease includes plans for Ares to have utilities reconnected to the building.
