Editor's Note: Candidates can chew on this

Focus on the positive, flaunt your knowledge, downplay incumbency and put on some comfortable shoes for going door-to-door.

Oh, and don’t forget about The Daily Triplicate, which is read by an astounding 96.6 percent of likely voters in Del Norte County, according to a newly released survey.

That’s some of what the 25 or so candidates for local office in the Nov. 2 election could glean from the LifeStyles Research Company survey of 300 people who voted in the last two elections. It was conducted June 22-26.

Coastal Voices: The case for Hambro

Read more...In response to Paul Dillard’s July 9 letter, “Waste controversy about money, not the good of the community,” he is correct about one thing. It is about the money. It is also about the good of the community. Here are the facts:

1) The decision was not difficult and the contract should have been awarded to a local company that has supported this community since 1963 in more ways than Recology could count. 

2) Hambro received a one-point evaluation edge against a company that has been in the garbage business longer and manages more garbage facilities than Hambro. This fact begs one simple question: Why didn’t Recology, with all its vast experience and expertise, beat Hambro by a very wide margin rather than Hambro besting Recology by one point?

Coastal Voices: The case for Recology

Read more...I would like to personally thank the employee owners of Recology Del Norte for their dedication and commitment to the customers, community, and their company. Without their support, Recology Del Norte would have never received the 4-1 vote awarding us the proposal for Solid Waste, Recyclables, and Organics Collection.

The confidence of the Del Norte Solid Waste Management Authority Board in the experience of our company and people is a testament to the dedication of our employees, and demonstrates the board’s faith in our ability to move forward together toward its goal of zero waste. 

In the weeks following the board’s decision, Recology Del Norte has been portrayed as a large corporation without local roots. While our headquarters is located in San Francisco, Recology Del Norte could easily fill a page in The Triplicate with local activities and organizations that we support.
