Keep Kim, Says the North Coast People’s Alliance
This is a press release from the North Coast People’s Alliance:
The North Coast People’s Alliance voted at it’s August 18 general meeting to endorse Kim Bergel in her re-election campaign for Eureka City Council.
NCPA Steering Committee member Sandy Farrell pointed to Bergel’s support of issues that are in line with NCPA’s mission when casting his vote to endorse her. “She has worked in support of SB 562 (single-payer healthcare), backs the Humboldt County Sanctuary measure and is in favor of Proposition 10, the statewide rent control measure,” said Farrell. “She’s been an ally of NCPA in the past and is the clear choice for our endorsement in this race.”
Bergel is a life-long Eurekan who currently teaches at Eureka High School and has served on the council since December 2014. In her time on the council she has worked to create connections with her constituents and strives to be available to all the citizens of the city. In her presentation to NCPA Bergel stressed her belief that it is important to have conversations and dialogue with all of the people who live in the city, not just the vocal ones who show up to city council meetings. “It’s all about education, communication and being available,” she said.
When asked about the most pressing issue facing the city, Bergel replied, “Old thinking and negative narrative. I continue to support forward thinking policy, as well as modeling positive behavior.”
“I’m involved with the city because I love it. I’m so proud of all of us,” she added.
