I am a Democrat living in Humboldt's Fourth Supervisorial District. Although we have two capable Democratic candidates running, I choose to vote for Natalie Arroyo because of her breadth of experience, her commitment to environmental issues and the effectiveness of her campaign organization.
That last is particularly important because the third candidate in the Fourth District race, a proven conservative, should not be allowed to win. Humboldt County deserves to finally have a progressive majority on its board of supervisors.
Natalie Arroyo can win and provide that majority. Her election, joined with Steve Madrone's re-election from the Fifth District, will give our community the forward-looking leadership it deserves.

Natalie Arroyo has been endorsed by the Yurok Tribal Council, U.S. Congressmember Jared Huffman, California Assemblymember Jim Wood and many elected officials throughout Humboldt County. She has earned support from unions, such as Operating Engineers Local Union Number 3 District 40, International Association of Heat and Frost Insulators and Allied Workers Local 16, United Food and Commercial Workers Local 5 and the Carpenters Local 751.
Her work in the field of environment and public health has earned her the respect and support Of the Redwood Coalition for Climate and Environmental Responsibility and Healthcare for All Humboldt.
Natalie Arroyo has an excellent track record during her nearly eight-year tenure as a Eureka City Councilmember and her volunteer work shows her continuous dedication to our community.
Natalie Arroyo is going to make a fine Humboldt County supervisor for the Fourth District, and I encourage everyone to vote for her in the upcoming election.

I'm asking you to vote for Natalie Arroyo for Fourth District Supervisor because she is the best candidate for the office. As a professional planner, I follow many public meetings and Natalie rises to the top as a talented and charismatic leader ready to take on the demands of this job.
Natalie has the intelligence and visionary leadership needed to bring our County into the 21st century. She understands the available policy tools to steer our region toward a livable future — one that is characterized by a thriving economy, abundant housing, vibrant downtowns, and convenient transportation options. And with her experience in natural resources, our rural working lands will be protected.
Natalie is the type of person you want in the room during a long, tense meeting. She is tactful, patient and listens to all sides. I can't wait to see what she can accomplish as supervisor.
