UKIAH, 2/1/20 — It’s election time again and that means we’re bringing back our “Meet the Candidate” series, wherein we conduct live-streamed video interviews of all the supervisorial candidates. We interviewed Ukiah City Councilwoman Maureen “Mo” Mulheren this Friday, Jan. 31, at her office in Ukiah.
We hope you find this interview informative, and if you have questions you’d like us to ask the candidates, email [email protected] or tune in live and comment during the upcoming video interviews. This interview was conducted by our managing editor, Adrian Fernandez Baumann.
You can also read a candidate’s statement provided by Mulheren before this interview. The Mendocino Voice will be covering the 2020 local elections thoroughly; you’ll find more of our election coverage here. The other candidates running for supervisor in the District 2 primary are Joel Soinila and Mari Rodin.
The California primary election will be held much earlier than usual this year, on March 3. You can register to vote in the primary up until February, and register online here — but if you don’t register by then you can still cast a conditional ballot at the polls on election day. To vote in Mendocino County you must be a U.S. citizen, over 18, and live in Mendocino County.
There is absolutely NO NEED for ABOVE MARKET housing…the problem is we have too much of that already. We need more truly AFFORDABLE housing. There is no place for people to go…the same old song…send people to stop the homeless falling asleep or trying to rest and eat and tell them to move on but to where? How much is done for the people instead of for the Profit Mongers and slum lords..and it is INSANE for her to do what has always been done…the Homeless are not all with Mental Health issues or Drug or Alcohol Addictions. With her attitude nothing will change and she does not at all understand doing without because she was privileged and bailed out by Parents more than once. She would like Credit for anything anyone else does but she has no clue and talks like she knows what life and reality are about but she has no clue
