Interim county counsel appointed

The Board of Supervisors announced Tuesday the interim appointment of Wendy Chaitin to the position of county counsel.

Chaitin has been with the office for more than 16 years, 12 of which as assistant county counsel, a news release stated.

She graduated from New York University in 1975 with a Bachelor of Arts in journalism and from Vermont School of Law, J.D., cum laude, in 1980.

Chaitin has long-term experience with the county and has successfully handled litigation resulting in favorable outcomes in every case, saving the county thousands of dollars, the news release continued.

Her “many years of legal experience in county government should prove to be a great asset to Humboldt County and its citizens,” the release stated.

Her appointment will be effective Sunday.



  1. What did they say. The woman can’t do a thing in court. What has she successfully handled which saved the county anything. This must have been a press release penned by her, cause it sure doesn’t mirror reality.

    A friend told me about an incident at the Mckinleyville airport in which her flight was screwed up so she started screaming and calling the ticket agent Mother F@@#er. Yeh - a real class act just perfect for the county. I would like to know who voted for her to be “interim” cause I heard it was a 3-2 vote.

  2. status quo ?


Comments are open, but moderated, for the time-being. Good luck.
