Eureka Mayor La Vallee, Councilman Kerrigan Attend VCC Weekly Meeting
I didn't get a chance to write about last Thursday's tour of the Elections Department. It wasn't really a tour in the sense I had imagined. We sat in the basement and heard Humboldt County Elections Manager Lindsey McWilliams walk us through a PowerPoint show of his own. He then did a machine demo. Missing was the casual walking and talking other VCC members and I had envisioned. Supervisor Jimmy Smith and Elections Clerk Carolyn Crnich were present for some of the time and we had hoped to continue the dialog on setting up a County task force on election reform. Sensing that we hadn't capitalized on this occasion, VCC member Mark Konkler promptly set up a meeting with Supervisor Smith for later this week.
