Eureka City School Board Election
The Freddy seems to have shut down another discussion, albeit unintentionally. Was it something I wrote?
Eric Kirk announced a meet and greet for candidate for the Eureka City Schools' Board, Lisa Olivier. Her opponent is long time incumbent John Fullerton. A few of us went back and forth over that, mostly focusing on endorsements. The Olivier meet- and- greet was being sponsored by the Eureka Teacher's Association- a big minus in my book, but I suggested we focus on the issues involved.
My gut feeling is there isn't much difference on issues between the two candidates as both are likely to support the status quo. Might there be some actual difference of opinion on some pertinent issues? I brought up the recently proposed shutting down of Eureka High School's auto shop program. Fullerton opposed that. What's Olivier's position?
The only comment made after that was whether Olivier was related to a past harbor commissioner. Looks like this will be another us versus them election with endorsements and relationships holding the weight and specific issues being irrelevant?
As far as the election goes, I might sit this one out if no differences on issues come into play.
