Sullivan won’t run again for supervisor

Chris Howard announces candidacy for 3rd district

Regardless of the outcome of the June 3 election, Del Norte County’s District 3 will get a new supervisor.

Current Supervisor Mike Sullivan, whose district includes Smith River, Hiouchi and Gasquet, said Friday he doesn’t intend to run for a third term. Sullivan, who was elected in 2008, said he hopes his friend Chris Howard will succeed him. 

Howard told the Triplicate on Thursday he intended to run for the post. He said he wants to strengthen business and tear down “regulatory red tape.”

Sullivan said he is not seeking re-election due to increased business responsibilities as an Edward Jones financial advisor and a wish to spend more time with his 12-year-old son. He said he had always intended to serve two terms on the Board of Supervisors.

During his second visit to Del Norte County on Tuesday as the leading advocate of an effort to create the state of Jefferson, Yreka pilot Mark Baird outlined what it would take to “escape” California and what role the Board of Supervisors is being asked to play.

A town hall meeting hosted by the Del Norte County State of Jefferson Declaration Committee drew more than 300 people, who filled nearly every seat and stood along the edges of the room at the county fairgrounds. They punctuated Baird’s comments with raucous applause and the occasional shout of approval. Many also purchased sweat shirts, bumper stickers and flags emblazoned with the “Great Seal of the State of Jefferson.”
