Let’s Continue Working Together!

2020 has turned out to be a very challenging year for us all. But in spite of all of the challenges and hardships, I have seen and experienced people’s incredible ability to come together and find solutions.

As your Supervisor, my number one priority has been working with our emergency response team, health officials and community leaders, putting action plans in place and implementing them to help essential services, families, schools, local businesses and workers navigate through the Covid-19 pandemic and beyond. The work we accomplished in putting a top tier emergency and economic response team in place has also helped us to respond quickly to the historic August Fire currently threatening our County.

I have a proven track record of getting things done by leadership through teamwork.
I have developed trusted working relationships at the county, regional, state and federal levels bringing resources and funding to our rural district and Humboldt County as a whole.

Although the job of County Supervisor is challenging, especially now I love my job and it’s an honor to serve not just all the people and communities in the 2nd District but all of Humboldt County.
Let’s continue working together. I would be honored to have your vote!

Some of the many significant priorities / issues I am working on are:

Public Safety
Improved Infrastructure
Clean Energy and Alternative Power
Community Empowerment and Economic Development
Affordable Housing and Homelessness
Potter Valley Project Re-licensing
Implementation of the General Plan Update
Implementation of Cannabis and Hemp Legalization
Implementation of SB 1029 (The Great Redwood Trail)

Safe Routes to School Funding

California Transportation Commission’s Active Transportation Program awarded funding to four projects in Humboldt County this week. Two of those projects were in the 2nd District. The other projects are in Trinidad and Hoopa.

Through the funding, safe routes to schools projects will be started in Fortuna and Rio Dell. South Fortuna Elementary will receive almost $900,000 and Rio Dell’s K-8 schools will receive $1.5 million.

This is the program that also funded the recent improvements around Redway Elementary School.

Grant workshop for school funding in Fortuna

A successful grant requires the kind of information and input gathered at workshops like this one Estelle participated in at South Fortuna Elementary last February.


The school is located on the well-travelled Newburg Road and safe access for kids is a real challenge. Improvements to access will hopefully address this kind of dangerous behavior.

Fennell said she was unprepared when her name was announced.

“I am totally surprised,” she said, “so much so that I am speechless. I am extremely honored, and humbled. I have not ever been as honored as I am this day.”
