MENDOCINO Co., 2/20/18 -- The Mendocino Voice is conducting a series of "meet the candidate" video interviews with the various candidates in the supervisorial races this year. We hope this series will help our readers better understand their candidates for the Mendocino County Board of Supervisors. On Monday, Feb. 28, we interviewed Chris Skyhawk, who's running in District 5, using Facebook Live, and we're reposting that video here for everyone who missed it.
Here's a map of the supervisorial districts. If you're interested in throwing your hat into the ring the filing deadline is March 9, with a potential for an extension -- though the fee is hefty.
The Mendocino Voice will be covering the 2018 local elections thoroughly; you'll find more of our election coverage here.
The 2018 California primary election will be held June 5. You can register to vote in the primary up until May 21, and register online here. To vote in Mendocino County you must be a U.S. citizen and live in Mendocino County.
We spoke with Skyhawk at the Mendocino Hotel, in the town of Mendocino, and the interview was conducted by our managing editor, Adrian Fernandez Baumann. You can find out more information about Skyhawk's campaign and upcoming campaign events at his website and Facebook page.
