Eureka's Arcata Slate?
So now we know who the lefties are in the upcoming Eureka City Council race.
Linda Atkins is running for 2nd district. Looks like she's a retired Caltrans worker and union member. I can just imagine what sort "new economic policies" she might be thinking of.
We've known of George Clark, running for 4th district, for some time. A self- identified progressive, he fills in the other half of Eureka's Arcata slate.
Almost seems like some kind of conspiracy that we already have the two candidates from the Left identified, but only one non- lefty, Frank Jager, has thrown his hat in the ring. Anybody else out there thinking of running?
I was speaking with Frank last week and mentioned how this race has already become a Left vs. Right thing, with the so- called progressives lining up behind his opponent. Frank said he didn't want it to be that way and that he just wanted to deal with the issues.
He also told me he'd never met George Clark before and was going to try and meet with him. And here I thought Frank was one of those guys who knew everybody.
Oh well, leave it to me to take my turn at turning the Eureka City Council race into a Left vs. Right thing.
