Austin Allison Announces Run for Eureka City Council
On Thursday evening, supporters gathered to celebrate Austin Allison’s official campaign launch for Eureka City Council. Dozens of Eureka residents held signs, clapped, and cheered as Allison, a 25 year old Cardiac Monitor Technician at St. Joseph Hospital, officially launched his campaign for Eureka City Council at Sequoia Park.
Allison was introduced by one of his campaign workers, and local small business owner, Tamara McFarland, who lauded the candidate’s “willingness to step forward and work creatively and cooperatively to help lead our city.” McFarland continued, “His election to city council will serve as an inspiration to other young people to get involved however they can, either by running themselves – on school boards, water boards, city councils, and on up the line – or by volunteering for a candidate they believe in.”
Allison spoke about his motivation for entering the race – “I’m doing this because I feel inspired to bring a new, fresh perspective to the Eureka City Council.” He continued to describe his vision for Eureka, which included economic development, working to attract higher paying jobs to the area, increasing mental health and addiction services, and working on beautification projects for the city.
