I received the following message from the Marks campaign.  You won’t find a local coalition more broad than this one.

California 1st District Assemblyman Wes Chesbro has endorsed Richard Marks for Humboldt Bay Harbor, Recreation and Conservation District Commissioner, Fourth Division.

“Richard recognizes the importance of connecting job creation with environmental stewardship,” Chesbro said. “I applaud his commitment to developing sustainable industries that strengthen our local economy while preserving the natural beauty of our bay. He’s definitely the right choice for Harbor Commissioner.”

Marks replied, “I am honored to have the endorsement of Assemblyman Chesbro, and will work hard to create living wage job opportunities along our bay.”

Richard Marks has also been endorsed by the following elected officials:

Virginia Bass — Eureka Mayor

Mark Wheatley – Arcata Mayor

Frank Jager — Eureka City Councilmember

Shane Brinton — Arcata City Councilman

Ronnie Pellegrini — Humboldt Bay Harbor Commissioner, Division 1

John Woolley – former Humboldt County Supervisor, Third District

Peter La Vallee – former Eureka Mayor

Along with most of the working unions in the North Coast that want to see more jobs in our community.

Matthew Owen, Campaign Chair

I also endorse Marks, for reasons I’ll make explain in a future post.  I endorse Mike Wilson in the other race.
