VOTE TUESDAY NOVEMBER 4TH!

 

Name:  Paul Pitino

Age:  68

Occupation:  Self-employed Landscaper

Resident of Arcata since 1993

I served as a member of the Arcata City Council, 2004 to 2008 and on the City of Arcata Transportation Safety Committee, 1997 to 2004.  

I have served on the Humboldt County Association of Governments Social Services Technical Advisory Committee since 2009.

There are several community projects that I have advocated for including the City of Arcata downtown public restroom, Humboldt County Sunday bus service, the In Home Supportive Services (IHSS) worker’s contract with Humboldt County, and rehabilitation of my neighborhood park.

I will strive to improve the quality of life in Arcata by focusing on a "premier destination" dog park for the City of Arcata, a campground for bicycle travelers, the upgrade of small neighborhood parks, the formation of a HSU/City of Arcata common interest commission, increased bus service on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights, the creation of satellite parking for downtown Arcata, investigating low cost solutions to the houseless crisis, and implementation of rental housing health and safety inspections.

I support innovative traffic calming projects throughout the City of Arcata and use of Inclusionary Zoning for future affordable housing.

I support Measure P - Ban GMO's in Humboldt County.

I support the Humboldt Bay Trail and City of Eureka Fair Wage Act.

I oppose the Measure Z Countywide Sales Tax since it should only apply to unincorporated areas, not incorporated cities like Arcata. 

In support of campaign finance reform I will not be accepting donations.  I will not use lawn signs, endorsements, or advertisements.  Your vote is all I need.

Thank you.
