Reading the exchanges between candidates Fullerton and Allison regarding the closure of the care homes in Eureka, I was shocked to learn that Mr. Fullerton feels that the acute distress of some of our most vulnerable citizens, (and their families), in being evicted from their care homes is no concern of the members of the City Council! I think the welfare and treatment of Eureka citizens must be a primary concern of our representatives on the City Council – not something to be shrugged off as irrelevant to Council business! Granted that Mr. Allison’s profession makes him more aware of, and concerned with the healthcare and personal welfare of vulnerable citizens, and, granted, that Mr. Fullerton’s profession makes him more concerned with citizen’s financial situations: Which orientation makes a candidate best suited for service on the Council? By my values it is clearly better for Eureka to have Mr. Allison on the City Council. I urge Eureka citizens to VOTE for Austin Allison!
