Three Harbor District Hopefuls DQed for Lack of Signatures

Posted By on Tue, Sep 8, 2015 at 4:52 PM

It looks like there won’t be a 1st Division Harbor District race after all.

Last month, we reported that a trio of candidates stepped forward announcing their intent to run for the seat being vacated by Humboldt Bay Harbor, Recreation and Conservation District Commissioner Aaron Newman. Well, it appears two of them weren’t very serious. The Humboldt County Elections Office confirmed to the Journal this afternoon that would-be candidates James Roberts and Hezekiah Allen failed to gather the requisite 25 valid signatures from registered voters to qualify them for the ballot, leaving Larry Doss to run unopposed. He will now be appointed to the seat.

The Elections Office informs us that would-be 5th District challenger Kyle Visser also failed to submit signatures. But fear not, political junkies hankering for a heated election: That seat will still be contested, with challenger Susan Rotwein taking on incumbent Pat Higgins. The 2nd District seat will likewise be contested, with incumbent Greg Dale pitted against challenger Nick Angeloff.

So those hoping for an election season brimming with bay mudslinging may still get their wish, just not in the fightin' 1st.
