Mayor & City Council Candidates face off 9/30 & 10/1

Nine local community organizations have joined forces to host community forums for all 3 Mayor Candidates and all 9 City Council Candidates running in the upcoming election on November 6th. The Humboldt & Del Norte Counties Central Labor Council, North Coast People’s Alliance, Cooperation Humboldt, Health Care for All Humboldt, Northcoast Environmental Center, Centro Del Pueblo, Move to Amend, Affordable Homeless Housing Alternatives, and the Eureka Chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People are co-sponsoring the events, which will be held at the Labor Temple (840 E Street, Eureka) on September 30th (Wards 1 and 3) and October 1st (Mayor and Ward 5) from 6:00-8:00 pm.

 

Each organization will ask questions relevant to their missions to each of the candidates – on September 30th Councilwoman Natalie Arroyo and challengers Jeannie Breslin and John Fullerton, and Ward 1 candidates Caroline Brooks, Leslie Castellano, Hailey Lamb, and Anthony Mantova; On October 1st Councilwoman Kim Bergel and challenger Joe Bonino, Mayoral candidates Michelle Constantine, Councilwoman Heidi Messner, and Susan Seaman. The Forums will be moderated by Labor Council Delegates Jerome Washington and Renee Saucedo, and will be livestreamed on Facebook and recorded to air quickly after on Access Humboldt.
“Right now Eureka resident are highly engaged in social and political issues,” reports Tamara McFarland, North Coast People’s Alliance steering committee chair. “We all understand that we have to work together if we want to strengthen social safety nets, protect the environment, and create a thriving and stable economy that benefits us all. What separates this event from others is the collaboration of so many organizations working on these issues in Eureka.”
This event is free and open to the public.

  1. Too bad Arcata politics aren’t as interesting or as contested as Eureka’s. What happened to Arcata? Why so boring now?

    • Don’t tell me it’s that damn statue’s fault! Did that issue scare off potential Arcata City Council candidates this year? Well, in that case, that’s a problem we can solve for next time by getting rid of that stupid McKinley statue already. MCKINLEY SUCKS!!!
