Kerrigan announces his campaign.
Fourth District Supe Virginia Bass and 5th District Supe Ryan Sundberg don't get to put up their feet this this year. Two 11th hour announcements have Eureka pol Chris Kerrigan aiming for Bass' seat and McKinleyville Pastor Sharon Latour going after Sundberg.
Kerrigan announced his campaign on the steps of the elections office Friday afternoon to the applause of some notable Humboldt County lefties. As you may recall, Kerrigan had previously set sights on the Eureka mayor seat
. Talking points in his brief speech Friday remained Eureka-centric. "Humboldt is waiting for its Eureka moment," he said.
Latour hasn't made an official announcement yet, but confirmed to LoCO last week that she was running. Both she and Kerrigan filed the necessary papers by Friday — deadline for this year's election.
Let the fun begin.
