Ed Mitchell announces bid for supervisor
Tuesday, August 25, 2009
Ed Mitchell, a north Monterey County land use activist, today announced his candidacy for District 2 supervisor. Mitchell will challenge longtime supervisor Lou Calcagno in 2010.
“For the last decade my wife Jan and I have worked to bring open, fair government to North County," Mitchell said in a prepared statement. "We have been on the front lines pushing for required fire protection in our neighborhood. We’ve also fought projects like Rancho San Juan which would have been a gross exploitation of our community by potentially damaging our wells and aquifers, by creating traffic congestion, and pollution, while failing to provide needed infrastructure upgrades for roads, schools, fire, and police services."
