Brian Mitchell appointed to Planning Commission

Brian Mitchell is top choice for Planning Commission seat. Supervisor Mike Wilson said he was going to vote no because of his comments on wanting diversity but complimented Brian Mitchell and the no was not a personal one.

"Mr. Ulansey is the poster child of conflict of interest."

The Humboldt County Board of Supervisors is now addressing the appointment on the Planning Commission.

17 applications.

Public comment was taken. Carrie Peyton Dahlberg asked Supervisors not to nominate Lee Ulansey calling him "divisive"
and making decisions detrimental to the environment.

Allen McCloskey Jr. read a prepared statement into record. Recommended Nicole Sager and Sungnome Madrone. He said neither candidate had agenda.

Allen McCloskey said that it had been brought to attention that Mr. Ulansey has threatened certain Supervisors that he would run against them if he was not appointed.

Not one letter of support but several against reappointing Lee Ulansey on the Humboldt County Planning Commission

The agenda for tomorrow's Humboldt County Board of Supervisor's meeting has a lot of information in the attachment provided for the item regarding filling the seat of Humboldt County Planning Commissoner Lee Ulansey which expires at the end of the month.

Check out the applications of all candidates.

Not one letter of support for Lee Ulansey but several against his reappointment.

Lee Ulansey should answer whether he plans to run against Fourth District Supervisor Virginia Bass. If he does, he should take himself out of consideration for this position and allow the Board to pick someone who wants to serve the County, not someone who wants to use the Planning Commission as a bookmark for their next political position.
