CONFIRMED: Eureka Councilmembers Kerrigan & Jones to Discuss Town Hall Forum on IRV
I don't want to exaggerate the importance of the Kerrigan/Jones meeting. I will reserve excitement for once the forum date and location have been confirmed. Still, though, this is happening because Scott Menzies and Jack Nounnan and a few others have been joining me since October for regular appearances at the Eureka City Council meetings. This absolutely is one of many small victories to be acknowledged if not celebrated along the way to election reform.
I have not had any new contact with Arcata City Councilmember Harmony Groves or Arcata Vice Mayor Dave Meserve. The pair comprise a Council subcommittee responsible for editing the No Confidence Resolution. I have been assured an opportunity to engage them on their revision work but I do not know when that will happen.
I believe the next Council meeting agenda will be posted on Friday of this week in advance of next Wednesday's session. If I don't connect with Harmony or Dave by the end of the week, this public notice will at least provide a hint at their time frame, and whether the resolution is ready for consideration or if it will have to wait until March. Meanwhile, Councilmembers in both Eureka and Arcata need to hear encouragement from constituents. I posted contact info for all of them at the bottom of this recent entry. Thank them for being LEADERS, and leading where you want to follow.
Finally, two upcoming events at which I'll be speaking about the No Confidence Resolution.
- Saturday, Feb 12, sometime after 11am - Green Party General Assembly in Garberville, CA
- Saturday, Feb 19, 1pm - Advocacy workshop and planning session for March 19 Eureka, CA Peace March (workshop at Sacco Theater by Adorni Park; march details TBA)
