Mark Lovelace’s gift for self-promotion went entirely unappreciated by the Crescent City Council which, after he sent a request for support of his nomination to the California Coastal Commission, voted instead to back someone–or actually anyone–else.
[Crescent City Manager Rod] Butler said the city received a letter from Humboldt County 3rd District Supervisor Mark Lovelace asking for support. Humboldt supervisors nominated Lovelace last week.
Instead, the City Council decided to send a letter to the governor supporting whomever the Del Norte County Board of Supervisors chooses to nominate.
You can’t fault the little guy for having big dreams, but this power-grabbiness is not a good look.
