Kuhnel Formally Announces
This just in (earlier this morning, of course) from the folks at Local Solutions:
Eureka Planning Commissioner, Ron Kuhnel, will formally announce his candidacy for 3rd Ward, Eureka City Council. The event should start, about the time I post this, at Eureka City Hall.
Certainly it's no surprise he's running, as that's been in the news for some time now. No surprise, either, that Local Solutions has sent out an announcement of his press conference. I think we've known all along he was going to be one of Local Solution's candidates in this election.
What surprises me is that Kuhnel is the only one, at least at this point in the game, that is openly tied to Local Solutions and the Anti- Arkley and Anti- Marina Center effort. I would of thought there'd be a few more obivious ones showing up by now.
Can't help but wonder if some candidates might make it a stealth issue and run on something else, their real reason for running being to shut down any competition for local businesses.
It will be interesting to see if Local Solutions backs any of the other contenders for the Eureka City Council race.
