Since beginning this campaign nine months ago, we’ve worked together to create a strong, professional, and fair-minded campaign for 2nd District Supervisor. Thank you to each of the hundreds of you who have supported our effort by donating your time, money, energy, and more. It has been inspiring to work with you, and for you in service of our shared future.
Last week I learned that I have cancer – shocking and unwelcomed news to say the least. While I am focusing all my energy on my treatment and recovery, I do not know what the future holds if elected, but despite the headlines you may have read in the Ukiah Daily Journal or Anderson Valley Advertiser. I am not suspending my campaign.
I do not take this decision lightly, and It pains me to step back just when our momentum is reaching its crescendo. A deep, heartfelt thank you to the many supporters and volunteers who are continuing on with campaign activities. I am truly honored by your support and confidence in me.
Thank you again for all have done to support my candidacy and for continuing our vision of what’s best for the Ukiah Valley and Mendocino County.
-Mari Rodin, Candidate for 2nd District Supervisor
