Rodoni's wife asks to be appointed to his board seat
...In her letter to the governor, Johanna Rodoni makes clear she felt she could not wait to request the appointment.
”I wish there were no need for the writing of this letter, but the tragic and sudden loss of my husband, Humboldt County Supervisor Roger Rodoni, creates this need, and the time frames outlined in the California Codes necessitate that I contact you right away,” Johanna Rodoni wrote.
”Normally,” Johanna Rodoni continued in the letter, “families are left to grieve in their own time and in their own way, but because my husband was in the midst of a campaign, and was a champion for the rights of his constituents, normal protocol must be suspended. I am honored to be in a position to take up where Roger left off in his role of being a strong, 'straight forward' voice on the Board of Supervisors, advocating for individual rights, common sense, honesty, and always keeping in mind the people for whom his position of county supervisor was created.”...
Governor, I hope you are listening.
