In the realm of community engagement and understanding local governance, seizing opportunities to directly interact with public figures is paramount. These occasions offer a platform where public officials may be more inclined to address questions they would typically steer away from. The team at Lost Coast Populist (LCP) wholeheartedly embraces these opportunities, aiming to engage with local government and shed light on various essential matters.

One such opportunity arose when a public meet and greet was announced, hosted by District 4 Humboldt County Supervisor Natalie Arroyo and Ward 4 Eureka City Councilmember Scott Bauer, slated for September 18th. This event seemed ideal for engaging with our local representatives and delving into an array of critical topics.

Natalie Arroyo

lcp interview-  natalie arroyo district 4 (9-18-23)

In our conversation with Natalie Arroyo, we explored the differences in work and pay between her current role and her previous position as a Eureka City Council member. The discussion also encompassed the vital issue of free speech, especially in the context of the recent board meeting where Charles Wilson’s public comment was abruptly cut short. We delved into the nuances of how local media covers stories, using the Clinton Ellis Gilmore incident as a case study. Furthermore, we addressed concerns regarding the stereotyping of parents who oppose certain subject matter being presented to their children.

A week before this event, the LCP team attended a Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence community picnic to gather reactions regarding a former member’s conduct and subsequent arrest. During this event, we had the opportunity to engage with G. Mario Fernandez, Eureka City Councilmember for Ward 3, and Renee Contreras-DeLoach, Eureka City Council Member for Ward 5.

G. Mario Fernandez
