Former Wiyot Tribal Chairwoman to challenge Bohn for supervisor
Good news from the Lost Coast Outpost!
Cheryl Seidner of the Wiyot Tribe is stepping into the contest for First District Humboldt County Supervisor. Seidner will face Rex Bohn and the lesser known candidate, Annette De Modena in the June primary. Reports Hank Sims:
A descendant of an Indian Island Massacre survivor, Seidner is pretty universally respected and esteemed. She led the Wiyot Tribe during the time when it was winning the island back from the city of Eureka. At the same time, she’s never really taken any high-profile positions in politics outside that one. No one has much reason to hate her.
You can bet this is going to energize the Humboldt County left o’ center, big-time. Will that be enough?
