Chris Kerrigan is terming out as Eureka city council member representing the 4th Ward. Man, those 8 years went fast!
Long time Eureka Business owner George Clark is running for the position. George is a liberal who fits the label of a local "progressive" Berkley type Democrat. I am sure he will have the resources to run a good campaign, and I think he will be tough to beat. I have not heard enough to judge his agenda yet. Back in 2000 he had a claim against the city of Eureka. Anyone out there remember what that was about? Is this one of the reasons he is running?
Frank Jager is the likely challenger for this position. He is currently leads the Humboldt County Coroners Office, but is retiring this year. He was a Eureka Councilman from 1992 to 1998. What does he think he can do now differently from what he did last time? Don't know what his agenda is yet either.
I realize this is a "non-partisan" position, but I have come to the conclusion there is no such thing in Humboldt County anymore.
Liberal vs Conservative. Democrat vs Republican. Environment vs Business. Left vs Right. Let the games begin.
