We have two great candidates running who will be more than able HumCo Supervisors and help to move our county back to the direction it needs to go. A direction that believes in private enterprise AND a belief in an effective public sector. People that believe we have to have both to reach the complex and attainable goals of our community going forward.
Chris Kerrigan will be running against incumbent Virginia Bass in Humboldt’s 4th District. Chris’ campaign kick off is today at 12:15 at 720 Wood Street in Eureka (H or I and Harris). Come out and show your support as Chris “tell’s it like it is”.
Sharon Latour is the “someone else” (Eric?!) who will be running in the 5th District and represents a great opportunity to help Supervisor Sundberg spend more time on much needed R&R after 3 and a half years behind the dais.
Take a look at Supervisor Bass’ and Supervisor Sundberg’s initial 2014 list of donors so far,if you haven’t already, to understand the popularity they both have with the development crowd in Humboldt County. A very narrow group of business interests are very interested in helping to complete the conversion of the Planning (and Building? does the County Build?) Department to a Service Department.
Supervisors Bass and Sudberg are both of course good people and charismatic and effective candidates, so the next couple of months will not be easy as the June 3rd primary approaches. It’s up to us to tell two people who will tell two people and so on about
Faberge Chris K. and Sharon L. and the change they can make on our BOS as soon as 2015.
No question about it, this is an uphill “battle” but it’s doable with people power. Come out today to hear what Chris has to say, and commit to making calls and/or doing a little canvassing. You can’t outspend people power. That is our open secret. That’s why everyone is clamoring to become part of the left-of-center movement (sometimes in name only) toward a balance of enterprise in the private sector AND smart government (ie NOT BIG) to move our communities forward.
