Local Candidate Pages
Heard Nancy "Nan" Abrams new radio ad the other day. I noticed she mentioned her campaign web site and it got me wondering about who's up to speed and who's not, as far as web presence is concerned.
Looks like both Nancy Flemming and Bonnie Neely have their sites up, which covers the Board of Supes race.
For Eureka City Council, I see Jeff Leonard has his page up. I believe he was the first to do so, unless I missed someone else's.
Another incumbent, Mike Jones, has his up as well. Not much there, but good for a start.
Nancy Abrams, as I mentioned, has been advertising her site during her radio ad. Not a whole lot there, though, at this point. All I see is a phone number, e-mail address and a link to Paypal for donations.
So, at this point, none of the first ward candidates; Wolford, Glass or Wilburn, seem to have a web page. Leonard does for second ward, but nothing for Ron Kuhnel (could have sworn I saw one somewhere, but it's not listed on Humguide or the League of Women Voter's Smartvoter page).
Ward 5 comes out the winner with both Abrams and Jones putting pages up, although Abrams' needs to get hers finished.
In the Mayoral race, Pete Levallee is the only candidate whose page I can find. Are the other candidates not going to bother? I see neither of the three mayoral candidates bothered with the LOWV Smartvoter page, either.
The only campaign page I can find in the Arcata City Council race is Dave Meserve's. Hard to believe, out of all those candidates, only one bothered with a web page.
None of them, including Meserve, bothered with the Smartvoter page, either. I wonder why? It doesn't cost a thing to set up a Smartvoter page with LOWV.
If some of the candidates do have pages up and I haven't found them, don't blame me. If they're that hard to find, they're certainly not going to be found by someone just casually interested in finding them.
