Tish Makes It
Looks like Tish Wilburn's nomination signatures were all accepted by the Eureka City Clerk's office. The Eureka Reporter mentions she's registered to vote as a Libertarian, then mentions one of Tish's campaign issues as, "She’d like to see a more active council... one that takes a strong role in enforcing the city’s existing ordinances and policies. ".
Hmmm...doesn't sound like something a Libertarian would run on.
The E/R also tells us that local pest, Jerry Droz, failed to get his nominating signatures to get on the ballot in the Eureka Mayor's race, but he still has time to make up the difference.
He could probably get the extra signatures fairly easily simply by hanging out in front of one of the local supermarkets. He just needs to be sure and pick one where people aren't likely to recognize him.
The Times- Standard reports a new face in the race for Arcata City Council. Nick Page, manager of the Humboldt Circus is making his first run for a seat. A somewhat offbeat campaign issue that he has, seems to me:
" ”It seems that new music venues don't get much support... Entertainment based business in general need more support. I think the city should do more to encourage those sorts of businesses.”
Then again, seems to me I've heard that complaint before in Arcata. I guess that just shows how culturally retarded I am. I've never paid attention to any of the entertainment news around here and I'd never even heard of the Humboldt Circus before. Or maybe I had, but just thought someone was referring to the Arcata City Council?
