Fifth District



Humboldt County is a unique and beautiful place. We have so much to look forward to. It is time for a change. We need a supervisor who is responsive to our communities needs and has the vision and experience to bring us together. Larry Doss is that person.

He Loves Humboldt County and has our best interests in mind. He has the knowledge and passion to work with all sides on issues that affect us. Larry Doss is endorsed by a wide range of public and private officials and groups, as well as many Humboldt County residents. Larry Doss is committed to and has a sincere passion for Humboldt County's future. He will get the job done.

Please join me in voting Larry Doss, the next Fifth District supervisor for Humboldt County on June 7.

Heather Vina, McKinleyville


I urge voters in the Fifth Supervisorial District to re-elect Steve Madrone. His list of accomplishments during his current term is long and impressive and too numerous for a complete listing here.

In addition to voting for wage and benefit increases for deputy sheriffs and securing funding for local fire districts, he has advocated for major road repairs; voted for removal of the Klamath Dams; got the board of supervisors to support $14 million funding for improved salmon restoration and flood protection; worked to alleviate problems with drug houses near schools; supported the creation of a McKinleyville town center and many other important quality-of-life issues for Humboldt County residents.

Madrone is a proven, experienced leader with a track record of finding practical ways to approach Humboldt County's complex issues. We need to keep him on the board of supervisors. 

Vote Madrone on June 7.

John Webb, Trinidad
