I recently attended a town hall meeting between Supervisor Ryan Sundberg and challenger Steven "SunGnome" Madrone in Willow Creek. I was unimpressed by SunGnome blaming Supervisor Sundberg for the hardships of the small cannabis farmer in Humboldt County. As a stakeholder in the development of our local ordinances, I can say that no single person is responsible for the current reality for small cannabis farms. They are struggling because this is a massive industry transformation with many nuanced moving pieces.
SunGnome is either naive, uninformed or strictly reaching for political gain through his very limited understanding of the current cannabis situation. None of these are complementary traits in an elected official.
