The Weekly Wrap: Overachievers

Hank Sims, Northcoast Journal
January 26, 2005

Get Involved Today!They only needed 4,389 signatures to get their initiative on the ballot but the Humboldt Coalition for Community Rights threw in a few thousand more, showing any would-be, non-local, big-money corporations (and you know who you are, Maxxam and Walmart) who try to get all up in this county's elections that the HCCR is for real.

Last Thursday, coalition supporters, including elected officials like Humboldt Bay Municipal Water District Board Member Kaitlin Sopoci-Belknap (who's also the HCCR campaign manager) and District Attorney Paul Gallegos, congregated at the HumCo Elections Office in Eureka to rejoice in their successful petition drive, using volunteer labor to pull in 7,668 signatures from North Coasters. The petition signatures supporting the initiative - known as the Ordinance to Protect Our Right to Fair Elections and Local Democracy - must be verified by the Elections Office within the next 30 days to be qualified for the June 2006 election.
