Re: “Yes on V

Hilary Mosher is able-bodied, non-retired, works full-time and owns a small, lucrative private business -- and pays just $488 a month to live in the finest manufactured housing community in McKinleyville. Measure V (which she wrote) is purposely not means-tested, so if passed by Humboldt County voters, well-to-do Hilary will score at taxpayer expense. Vote NO on Measure V.

Re: “Missing the Bern

Also missing the dream that was Bernie; he never had a chance. Hillary is taking no steps beyond pretense, supports the ACA and rejects the "legislative nightmare" of universal/single payer health care - which we desperately and critically need. She says the science is clear and Grandma Hillary knows best, and we are owned to the extent that we no longer have personal belief or religious exemptions regarding accepting vaccines exactly as the government dictates. This means that our children are wards of the state, and we must accept *anything* they decide to inject us with.

My vote will be against Hillary, and to that end, I consider votes for Donald Trump or to a lesser extent, Jill Stein, as ways to act against her. I think voting Trump is the strongest way to say no to Hillary, and have to admit that I especially relish the idea of her losing to someone who presents as he does. Being the cheat and thief that she is, however, I'm afraid it would take a Trump landslide to make her intentions impossible to fulfill.

Re: “Vote Red

No. This is the perfect opportunity to vote for someone outside of the two major parties with two horrific candidates running for president. Governor Gary Johnson is the past two term governor of New Mexico. He's fiscally conservative and socially inclusive as are most people up here. He deserves your vote and this is the perfect opportunity for that vote. www.garyjohnson2016.com

Zero leadership is the last thing Eureka needs.

Re: “True Ward or Bust

Fred would be hard pressed to explain who benefits most from the far higher costs of citywide campaigns and why that's a "good thing".

Re: “True Ward or Bust

Pam wrote," cities retaining the outmoded all-at-large system have been successfully sued for discriminating against minorities"

That might be true in large cities with distinct racial or cultural areas. Not true in Eureka. You'd be hard pressed to point to an area in Eureka that is predominantly one race.

Re: “Keep the Majority

John Fullerton voted against closing those schools when he was on the school board.
