Fennell flouts Fortuna law
Back when she was Executive Director of the Humboldt Coalition for Property Rights (HumCPR) Estelle Fennell made the curious statement that “subdividing a parcel doesn’t mean it’s a subdivision.”
Now that she’s running for 2nd district Humboldt County Supervisor, Fennell says a giant billboard in Fortuna telling voters to elect her in June is “not a political sign; it’s an ad.”
Fortuna city regs limit campaign signage to 30 days before an election. City Manager Duane Rigge has asked her campaign to play within the rules “in the spirit of civic mindedness and fair play.” But Fennell is again using semantic gymnastics to get around the city ordinance.
One can only imagine how she would interpret local and state laws if elected.
