McClure appointed to Coastal Commission

From the Guv:

SACRAMENTO – Governor Edmund G. Brown, Jr. today announced the following appointment.

Martha McClure, 58, of Crescent City, has been appointed to the California Coastal Commission. McClure has served as a Del Norte County Supervisor since 1996 and as a teacher in charge for the Del Norte Unified School District since 1984. McClure recently initiated discussions between commercial and sport fishermen, tribes and local environmentalists that produced a unified agreement on marine life protected areas off the Del Norte coast. This collaborative model was adopted by Humboldt and Mendocino counties.

McClure will serve in the north coast slot on the commission representing the counties of Humboldt, Mendocino and Del Norte. The appointee must be selected from a list of locally elected officials. A Del Norte County representative has never served in this slot.

This position does not require Senate confirmation and the compensation is $100 per diem. McClure is a Democrat.

    That was ringing pledge alright, then a few comments later he points out that Kendal Smith of Mendo would be a good pick too. Just Sleazeman covering his ass.

    Congrats to Martha – she’ll have her hands full, but she’ll give it her best.

    If everything I have read about her is correct then she is a good choice. What is wrong with having someone from another county be appointed? At least it was stated that she read 2 years of Coastal Commission reports and that is probably more than anyone else did that wanted the appointment.
