Re: “Extra Sunny Fortuna

For the past 36 years I have taught children from 0-12 years of age that logical and natural consequences are a direct result of their choices and actions. Blaming Janelle because the judge told the city to pay the $22,728 for not divulging public information makes about as much sense as blaming the police officer for issuing you a ticket when you chose to exceed the limit. The city chose not to turn over the documents being requested and so were the only ones responsible for the fine incurred. I'm glad Janelle hung in there and stuck up for what is our public right!

Re: “Extra Sunny Fortuna

I do not think Janelle is trying to come across as a deciding party of one. Her love of all things in nature and desire to preserve the few natural resources we have left on this Earth, merely drove her to explore and present other possibilites. With this approach to city issues we will be able to make more informed decision when the time comes.

Re: “Extra Sunny Fortuna

Okay the facts are in! According to an e-mail response from the City of Fortuna Senior Administrative Assistant:

The only qualifications needed to run for City Council are:

Must be a registered Voter

Must live within the City Limits

Imagine that, an American community that believes in a government "of the people, by the people and for the people!"

That’s it.

Re: “Extra Sunny Fortuna

Please read this version....typing is not one of my better qualifications

Being among the factoid before jumping in type…I went to the City of Fortuna website to find out exactly what does qualify one to run for office. I could not find the answer anywhere on the site so have asked the council to provide me with that information.

In the meantime, I have never known Janelle do to anything half way, nor solely for her own benefit. I for one will appreciate her persistence in finding out factual and viable solutions to issues involving the future of our city, especially since the solutions she seeks lead to win-win situations such as those mentioned in her video. Those of us who enjoy the great outdoors and the beauty of the forest in our own backyard are glad she went to bat on all of our behalves!! Isn’t that what an elected representative is sworn to do?
