What A Scoop!
Wow! You heard it first here, folks. I just found out who one of the candidates for Eureka City Council is going to be: Local gadfly and city hall groupie, Patricia "Tish" Wilburn, has taken out papers for the 1st Ward, currently held by Mary Beth Wolford. This will be her second attempt at the seat. A few years ago she got 22% in a three way race.
In her case this doesn't raise the Marina Center controversy as an issue. She says she's not all that concerned about that, one way or the other. She says she wants to deal with crime in the city.
Guess who was in the car with Tish. Nope, not Chris Kerrigan. It was Sue Brandenburg, the gal who took over the lawsuit against the Eureka Redevelopment Agency when the Humboldt Taxpayer's League gave up on it. Sue says she's not Tish's campaign manager, but it sure makes you wonder.
The big question is, will any one else throw their hat in the ring for the 1st Ward?
