Arkley takes his crusade to the Supes in two terrible letters
Eureka’s most repressed citizen, Rob Arkley, is demanding that Humboldt County Supervisors form Citizen Advisory Committees (CACs) so that developers can get what they want out of the General Plan Update (GPU).
Arkley appears to be writing under the pseudonym “Kay Backer” in a pair of letters to the Board last week, and warns of a “dictator-style governance that suppresses it’s people” if supes refuse to ditch the last decade of work on the GPU to satisfy Arkley’s catalog of acronyms (HELP, CPR, etc.).
The first letter is humorous enough, but it was followed by a post script to include a “very important point” left out of the first letter. In short, the letter says ‘it’s all Bonnie Neely’s fault.’ Look closely and you may see tear streaks smudging the page.
Former Supervisor Neely lost her bid for re-election last year to Arkley’s candidate, Virginia Bass. Therefore, obviously, he should get his way at every turn from now on.
The next hearing on the GPU will be April 14 at the Humboldt County Planning Commision meeting. Show up or tune in at 6pm to hear the same parade of developers and Realtors mimic Arkley’s agenda, just like they do every week, month after month, year after year.
