In 2008 there were three candidates in the running for Second District Humboldt County Board of Supervisors: Clif Clendenen, Estelle Fennell, and Johanna Rodoni, who ran in her husband's place after incumbent Roger Rodoni was killed in a traffic collision. Subsequently, the election was won by Clendenen and the seat is now up for re-election in Nov. 2012. Currently two candidates have declared for this seat, Clif Clendenen-the incumbent, and challenger Estelle Fennell. Candidates' photos and contact information are posted below, as are audio clips of KMUD News Reports regarding the candidates.
The newly configured 2nd Congressional District of California (CA-2) now includes all of Marin County and the coastal portion of Sonoma County in the south and all of Mendocino, Humboldt, Del Norte and Trinity Counties in the north. The district was formerly represented by retiring Congresswoman Lynn Woolsey in the 6th District (south) and Congressman Mike Thompson in the 1st (north). Due to Congresswoman Woolsey’s retirement, the 2nd District is an open seat. Mike Thompson, current District 1 Representative, will now run in the reconfigured 5th District.
