Hadar's council seat open for November ballot

Humboldt at-large City Councilman Joe Hadar has chosen not to run for re-election. Between the municipal water board and city council, Hadar thinks six years in public office is enough. Humboldt Independent file photo.

While several smaller communities in Humboldt County have contested races for a number of city offices, Humboldt has less than the required amount to fill the chairs around the conference table in the City Hall chambers.
As of the filing deadline which was last Thursday, Sept. 19, at 5 p.m., the city had one candidate for council member at-large, one candidate for the Ward 1 seat recently vacated by the resignation of Steve Boomgarden, and one candidate for mayor.
Sitting council member Joe Hadar decided not to file for re-election to the council. Longtime councilman Darrell Rusher did file nomination papers.
Dan Scholl, who lives on 4th Avenue SW, decided to file for the Ward 1 seat, to represent the city’s south side.
Boomgarden resigned early last month after faced with a choice of retaining his full-time council position or remaining on as the city’s part-time building and zoning administrator.
Walter Jensen has decided to run for a fourth term as Humboldt’s mayor. He was also unopposed.
Hadar gave no immediate reason for his decision, but said he has plenty of things to do.
