Estelle kicks off her campaign
“I am the candidate willing to listen to people and also provide solutions,” Fennell stated in an e-mail response to questions from The Eureka Reporter.
Fennell moved to the North Coast 24 years ago and spent the past 17 and a half years working as news director at Redwood Community Radio station KMUD, before stepping down in August.
Fennell, who said she has a good working knowledge of the issues and realities of the Second District, is drawing on her many years of experience covering issues at the local and regional level and through meetings and working with the management and staff of numerous agencies.
And she isn’t shy about pointing out what she sees as one of the district’s problems: Rodoni.
Fennel claims Rodoni seems unable or unwilling to be a representative who can make county government work better for people who are trying to build or attract new business and solve existing problems.
“The most important issue facing the Second District is our local economy,” Fennell stated.
You can comment on the article at the ER site.
Isn't she the one that would broadcast the location and direction of the cops, specifically the drug cops????
June is a long, long, way off.
Could she be a bit more specific about that? I would expect the reality to be the opposite. Granted, I might be using stereotypes here, but the Left tends to be the ones who try to keep businesses from coming here.
At a minimum that makes the station and the DJ or reporter a shirttail co-conspirator in the crime. Yes growing and selling marijuana is still a crime, even in Humboldt even if you don't like the laws.
Is there an incurable pot leaf blight strain threatening to change the economic landscape as we know it?
Price of diesel breaking the backs of 'homesteaders'?
Grower supply outlets suffering from sub-prime fertilizers?
Pardon-moi, but this sounds like the all too familiar CofC drumbeat of "poor pitiful us".
Hey, look who her advisor(s) are!
It all fits.
As to the CAMP reports, they are part of the community safety and awareness broadcasts, which also include alerts about drastic weather conditions, dispelling of rumors, and other useful information. Personally I like to know, when I leave for town, if there is a huge convoy of trucks just down the dirt road carrying armed dudes.
Because they're civil libertarians who believe that CAMP is an illegitimate government action enforcing oppressive and unnecessary laws.
By that rationale Eric some pervo chester from NAMBL can tip of the other freaks on the internet that the cops are working a certain site or ploy and that's OK with you?
As said earlier Eric KMUD does there reporting on the cops more than just during CAMP. Civil Libertarians = crooks.
"Community safety and awareness bulletins", that's really cute. Gee wiz I wonder why we don't have that in my neighborhood?
Just about every pot bust in the hills - the caravans reported by KMUD personnel - involves diesel gens, with attended fuel leaks into the ground, and the discovery of more than a few weapons.
Must be for varmint shooting.
You lawyers who make at least a partial income off of these busted pot growers are funny. Ever think of doing standup comedy?
NO MOORE FUEL!
“I am the candidate willing to listen to one side and give a really biased news story. Expect the same when I become supervisor.”
“The most important issue facing the Second District is our local economy - how can we grow more dope profitably and keep the northern Humboldt fascists from pulling it out of the ground before it is ready for harvest?"
Can you be more specific as to the other industry, besides pot, that the "larger county",- and it's present 2nd Dist. Supe by extention,- doesn't show much oonsideration for?
Would that be the non-profit industry?
What solution to that problem do Clif or Estelle have?
Although our town was included in it, nobody from the Sequoia group ever came to see or talk with us about it. It was like - they didn't need to!
I wasn't at all surprised by the big flop it turned out to be.
Leanne Barton's idea came a few years after we had discussed how to get local control of SoHum at several "Communiversity" meetings held in 1988. The original core group was Leanne, Manny Fishberg, and me. We met at Tooby Park where the name I suggested was agreed upon. Manny and I dropped out. It was part of my disillusionment with counterculture activism that hid the undemocratic, elitist mentality that one constantly sees with Prog pols, i.e., "we know what's best for you" while forgetting that the strength of America rests on democracy and representation of all sides.
Yo Margaret, I hope CAMP or it's DEA partner comes to visit you soon.
Because dope growers are propping up what's left of the local economy?
Supervisors don't write grants- individual county departments do. So are you expecting Clif and Estelle to become grant writers if they get elected?
In 11 years the local fire chiefs association has never seen Roger and found it hard to get his attention.
I expect them to get on the phone to lobby for them, yes.
Then they were called Chuck holes.
Then they were called Charles holes.
Now they are called Rodoni holes.
But, don't worry, they will all be fixed just before the election, they always are!
In any case, thanks for the link.
“In response to his critics who say he’s been absent in his district, Rodoni said he’s maintained an office in Garberville for 11 years and he is there every Thursday with the door open to anyone who wants to talk.”
I have been to his office and have received no help to the road problem. Nothing viable. Patched potholes are not viable. It has been years and years. The post office is still closed when I need to access it. Rodoni has not helped me. What has he done for you?
Yeah, and it keeps raining. Seriously, the post office is a federally controlled business - the county's got nothing to do with it, does it?
Maybe they can help fill pot holes!?
Yes I am very interested in what Estelle and Cliff have to say about this problem. Solutions not just agreement that there is a problem. And maybe they can figure out how to get the damn roads repaved. Rodoni seems to think that filling pot holes is the answer too.

Maybe Wondering About ED Said should look into how much of his taxes go to Sacramento first, and social services second; and how little of his taxes goes to Public Works.It's no different in other districts in the county - all the roads in the rural areas are in need of repair. In other words, don't take it personally. Give Public Works employees credit for doing what they do with so little resources. There's no money to do it! GET IT?
You seem to have problems grasping ideas in the abstract.
Speaking of abstract you still have not explained what the problem you have with the post office (Redway?, Garberville?) is,or why you think Roger should be able to solve it. For all I know you might be right, but its hard to tell when there are no non-abstractions, like facts, on the table. So:
1. What's the problem?
2. Why is it local and not Federal?
3. What gives Roger the power to solve it?
4. What is Estelle going to do about it?
5. What is Clif going to do about it?
6. What are you going to do about it?
