I strongly encourage all to vote for Richard Marks for harbor commissioner. I have known Richard since 2002 and he has consistently shown himself as a community member who brings people together. His history working with unions and organizing community activities like softball leagues show his commitment to civic action.
I am most impressed by Richard's dogged determination as a harbor commissioner to protect our precious Humboldt Bay. For me the importance of a clean and healthy bay to our daily quality of life cannot be over stated. Richard's leadership to resolve the disastrous situation of the abandoned pulp mill shows his commitment to the bay's future. As someone who witnessed the deplorable condition of the rusting tanks, I can confidently say we all live in a safer, healthier and more prosperous community now that the toxic liquids no longer sit next to the bay.
Vote Richard Marks for harbor commissioner.
