◼ Sharon Latour Launches Campaign to Unseat Sundberg - Ryan Burns/Lost Coast Outpost
McKinleyville pastor and CR assistant professor ◼ Sharon Latour today launched her campaign to unseat Humboldt County 5th District Supervisor Ryan Sundberg. Speaking to a crowd of roughly two dozen spectators from the steps of the county courthouse, Latour focused largely on the ongoing update of the county’s general plan, saying the current board has disregarded years of public input....
Your LoCO correspondent pointed out that the general plan update could theoretically be complete by next January, when new supervisors (should there be any) get seated, and asked Latour what other priorities she has for the county. She again returned to the importance of the general plan, calling it a “living document,” before lauding the county’s natural beauty and its niche business endeavors, including Humboldt Made.
◼ With GPU as focus, Sharon LaTour announces candidacy for the 5th district in front of the courthouse - John Chiv/Words Worth
About 30 supporters which included Eureka Councilmember Linda Atkins, 4th District Supervisorial candidate Chris Kerrigan, HDCC member Pam Service, and former State Assembly candidate Hezekiah Allen gathered in front of the Humboldt County Courthouse to hear Sharon LaTour announce her candidacy.

◼ Sharon LaTour, fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me - John Chiv/Words Worth
Based on her remarks, reported at these two links, I'm going to assume she is against going through the General Plan to make sure all the Easter Eggs are found. You know, things like govt. discouraging women from bearing children. Because. Developers!
I think it is worth noting the contrast between this and ◼ Ryan Sundberg's KickOff. His was held at Azalea Hall in McKinleyville. Like all of his events, it is kid-friendly, with a bouncy house and face-painters extraordinaire. It was packed with families, friends, and supporters from all across the spectrum. Parking lots were filled, and people parked, and walked from blocks away (a rare occurrence in this town.) It wasn't about money. It was about a tone, and a very real commitment to the community.
Note: 'liberaljon' has taken to opining about this post on Lost Coast Outpost. His extrapolations are entirely the figments of his imagination, and represent his fundamental lack of respect for property owners, and his own rigid ideologue persona.
