Now that Arcata race was a different story. Sofia Pereira and Mark Wheetley were about to garner the HCDCC endorsement when Milt Boyd pointed out that there was another Democrat in the race. Patrick Hyland had qualified and had not been notified by the committee of the endorsement process. So after much debate and discussion the HCDCC made a monumental first time e-mail endorsement process. All voting members of the HCDCC will be emailed information about the candidates and vote by e-mail in the next few days.
I left before the Fair Wage Act was discussed. It was endorsed and I really feel it will pass overwhelmingly in Eureka. All of Labor is backing it and I do think it is the right direction to provide "living wage" jobs in Eureka. It will be interesting to see if local businesses will put up a fight.
