On a recent Tuesday, the Eureka City Council continued exploring the possibility of a public bank. I am glad to live in a city willing to consider big ideas, while still proceeding with caution and humility. With the election coming up quickly, I am looking ahead at how the new candidates can continue to push our city forward.
Susan Seaman is the candidate for mayor who combines a bold and optimistic vision for Eureka with the prudence and acumen needed to secure its future. Susan has proven leadership skills in economic development and small business financing.
She is the only candidate with the complete package of business sense bona fides and an understanding and respect for Eureka's diverse communities. Eureka doesn't have to choose between responsible stewardship and a bold and inclusive vision for the future — we can have both by voting for Susan Seaman for mayor of Eureka this November.

I moved to Eureka 12 years ago because, after visiting year after year, I realized that this is where I wanted to make a home for the rest of my life. Eureka has beauty and community that is hard to find. I don't usually get involved in political campaigns but I am using my voice this election to support Susan Seaman for mayor.
Our wonderful city needs fresh leadership. I agree with Susan's vision that jobs, public services, safety, investment, arts and culture are all connected. Susan understands people and how to bring them together. I know this first-hand. I met Susan while serving on the board of a local nonprofit. I am super stubborn yet Susan was successful in helping me see issues in a new light. Susan has the professionalism, experience and temperament to succeed. Please join me and vote Susan for mayor.
