The at large appointments by the Board of Supervisors as well as Fire Chief and Sheriff's representative appointments will be discussed and finalized during the afternoon session of the Board of Supervisors meeting.
This morning after two requests from the public, instead of just filing an informational report on their appointments, thanks to Supervisor Ryan Sundberg and Estelle Fennell, the Board shared who they appointed.
Each Board member explsined a bit about why they picked the person from their individual district. You can watch that on video to learn more about each appoingment. Each member mentioned budget knowledge for each appointment. Supervisor Sundberg appointed Helen Edwards from Mckinleyville, Supervisor Mark Lovelace appointed Ginger Campbell from Arcata, Supervisor Rex Bohn appointed John Flyer from Loleta, Chair Fennell appointed Shon Wellborn from Sohum and Supervisor Bass appointed former City of Eureka Councilmember Mike Newman. Supervisor Bass added that Mr. Newman brings a perspective important, especially in Eureka. That perspective is is on dealing with mental health issues and homelessness.
