Eureka City Council Campaign Debate Thread
Did anyone listen to the debate tonight? I caught the last part of hit. Bonino’s closing was all negative, nothing about his own qualifications. Did he plan it that way, or did it just come out that way and he ran out of time?
But where I had to chuckle was in response to a question about bring business to the city. Bonino argued that the city needs to have a more business-friendly attitude. Is he criticizing his fellow conservatives who have run the city since, like, forever? Well, maybe not back in the 1920s when socialists were elected to office. But then Bonino went on to accuse Linda Atkins of “having a problem” with business owners. So apparently businesses are staying away from Eureka because of Linda’s lone vote.
But at least they both support water fluoridation. And all three candidates support short sea shipping.
Other than that, I heard the question re Prop 30. Atkins says yes. Both her opponents say no.
I would especially appreciate reports from anyone who heard the first part of the debate.
