Ukiah, CA Opens New Front For Election Reform
Kaitlin from Democracy Unlimited wrote to let me know that the Ukiah, CA City Council will soon be considering a resolution to support a state bill, SB 596, which would make it possible for general law (non-charter) cities to implement preferential voting. It would be a meaningful measure of support to have Arcata and the Humboldt Supes also get behind this. I just sent Kaitlin's message, including the proposed Ukiah resolution, to Arcata Councilmembers Meserve and Groves.
Today I also spent about 90 minutes at a Communities For Peace meeting featuring a lengthy report by recently returned Peace Ambassador Linda Sorter. I'll have a more detailed report on that in a future GuvWurld entry.
