A Record of Working for You
Chris Kerrigan is a fourth generation Humboldt County resident. He served two terms on the Eureka City Council from 2000-2008, and was President of the Redwood Region Economic Development Commission. During those years he also managed the campaign for the passage of measures S and T, two Eureka City School infrastructure bonds. On the Eureka City Council Chris Kerrigan was a strong proponent of smart growth planning principles, and worked to get housing, employment and recreational opportunities within the core areas of Eureka. Chris also brought forward a marriage equality resolution and an ordinance to extend the library’s hours, despite having no support from the rest of the City Council on these issues.
Economic Development for the People
Development and growth should take place in our core areas, not resource lands on the outskirts of the county. For the 4th District, this means areas such as Old Town, downtown, and Henderson center; as well as parts of Myrtletown, Fairhaven and Samoa. Investment in these areas will benefit 4th District families. To achieve this, it means having the courage to stand up to powerful special interests like Hum CPR, who seek to subdivide our resource lands. Chris Kerrigan will stand up to these groups because it’s in the best interest of the 4th District and Humboldt County.
Job Growth and Better Wages
Chris believes that every citizen should be able to find a good quality job, and that if you’re willing to work you should make a decent wage. He is endorsed by the Humboldt-Del Norte Labor Council and the United Food and Commercial Workers Union Local 5. Chris has a track record of working for working families and he supports raising the minimum wage county-wide. He also supports the Eureka Fair Wage Act, which would raise the minimum wage to $12 per hour for businesses with 25 or more employees.
Humboldt County needs new leadership with vision.
