Cliff Berkowitz / Monday, April 14 @ 7:26 a.m. / Politics
Each morning beginning Monday April 21st through Friday April 25th I will sit down with each of the candidate for District Attorney and Humboldt County Board of Supervisors and have a one on one conversation with them. This is not a debate, or a quick soundbite opportunity. I will spend 15 minutes with each of them getting to know who they are, whey the are running, what they plan to do and what is important to them.
Tuesday 4/22: 7:30AM Allan Dollison (DA)
Friday 4/25: 8:30AM Virginia Bass (4th district)
So before you head to voting booth in June, get to know the candidates one on one. If you miss any of the interviews they will be archived right here for you to download or stream.
Click the candidate's names to hear already-recorded interviews.

The KHUM Open Mic Project is finally here!
What is it?
It's like a real open mic, just with a community twist. You should plug a bake sale for your kid's school. You should read a quick poem.
Think of it like that bulletin board outside the Arcata Co-op.
How do I do this?
Read this primer. Then record :45 of sound on whatever device you want, and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
What's the catch?
No catch. This is a social experiment, and we actually believe that the constellation of Humboldt voices is a beautiful thing. It has to jive with KHUM, and it has to be legal. So get started on your KHUM Open Mic session!

This morning I spoke One on One with Maggie Fleming who is running for District Attorney of Humboldt County. She spoke passionately about changing the culture of politics in the DAs office, rebuilding the roster of prosecutors and sticking within legal framework regarding plea cases. Maggie also clears up the confusion that she is related to former Mayor of Eureka, Nancy Flemming. She is not (spelled differently).

This morning I spoke with Elan Firpo who is running for District Attorney of Humboldt County. She spoke of her qualifications, and her priorities in the office if elected. Public safety and prosecuting violent crime are at the top for her. Some high profile plea bargains are also discussed.

This morning I spoke via telephone with Sharon Latour, who is running for 5th District Supervisor. Environmental issues and local "Humboldt Made" economic development were among her top priorities. Life experience is sited as the main difference between her and her opponent.
