EUREKA GREENS ANNOUNCE ENDORSEMENTS FOR STATE
INITIATIVES AND CITY
COUNCIL RACES

EUREKA - The Eureka Greens, a local chapter of the
Green Party of Humboldt County, announced their endorsements for
the November election on Tuesday. The group is urging voters to
vote yes on state propositions 84, 87 and 89. "The Green Party is
committed to protecting the environment. Proposition 84 is an
important measures to protect our waterways and parks, and Prop 87 is
crucial to developing alternative energy sources and solutions
to the environmental and social problems caused by global
warming. We need to decrease our dependence on unsustainable
resources like oil, and Prop 87 is a step in that direction," said Heidi
Calton, Chair of the Eureka Greens and one of the Spokespersons
( Xandra Manns and David Giarrizzo being the others ) for the group.

"Proposition 89 is a crucial measure to regain
integrity in the electoral process. The majority of citizens have
lost faith in their own elections, so it is imperative that we take
action to get big money out of politics. Publicly funded elections
have proven successful in Maine and Arizona, and the people of
California deserve the opportunity to vote for candidates not beholden
to big money from private interests. As a society we fund the
infrastructure of our transportation systems, it is time that we invest
public money in the infrastructure of our democracy - elections," she
said.

The group also announced their opposition to
Propositions 85 and 90. "The Green Party supports a woman's right to choose,
the so-called 'parental notification' measure is an attempt to
obstruct a woman's right to an abortion. A nearly identical measure was
already been voted down by the people of California," Calton
said.

Proposition 90 is a controversial measure that many
argue would do away with local government's right to apply zoning
rules in cities and counties. "Prop 90 is a radical measure that
will take away our collective right to local control over our
communities. Local government needs the ability to make zoning laws to
protect the health and well-being of our communities. If 90
passes it will have a devastating effect on communities like Humboldt
County. We stand to lose our right to keep the rural aspects and
small-town feel of our communities, the Green Party is very opposed to this
measure and we hope the voters of California stand up for community
protection by voting no on 90," said Calton.

The chapter has endorsed Mayor Peter LaVallee in his
bid for re- election and threw their support behind Eureka City
Council candidates Larry Glass, Ron Kuhnel and Nancy Abrams.
The group decided not to endorse either candidate for the 4th
District Supervisors seat.

The Eureka Greens regularly meet the third Saturday
of every month at 3:30pm at Has Beans Coffeeshop on I Street in
Eureka. Their next meeting will be November 18. More information about
the Green Party of Humboldt County and the Eureka Greens can be

    Isn't the third Saturday of October coming up on the 21st? Is this another decision by fiat from puppetmaster Kaitlin through her willing dupe Queen Heidi? When did you guys amend your Bylaws to change this rule?

    Updates through humboldtgreens.org? Now that's a frigging joke. Lunatic asylum escapee Jesse Goplen and his pornographer wife haven't updated that since July. The whole point of them taking it over was to disrupt the county party and they succeeded completely. Time for the Eureka Greens to stop depending on these waste cases.
