Last year, we got to know Brett as he navigated a nuanced and challenging issue: The Village student housing project. Throughout the year, his willingness to listen, learn, and bring the community together, really shined. He is thoughtful, well informed, intelligent, caring and will take his role as an elected official seriously.

Brett’s community service and political connectedness captured our attention. He is well informed, deeply involved in a wide range of local issues, bursting with youthful energy and volunteerism. Getting to know Brett was like learning a new word. Once we got to know him, he showed up everywhere! We were especially impressed when we saw him on our weekend family days at the Eureka Zoo and The Phillips house in his role as a Big Brother. We love that he does “tech with Brett” at the senior center and makes himself available to his constituency by hosting open office hours twice a month.

He is endorsed by many, to mention a few: The Sierra Club, labor organizations, Humboldt County Democrats, Arcata Indivisible and the North Coast People’s Alliance. We’re confident he’ll embrace a term on city council with hard work, thought, care, dedication to his constituency, curiosity and a willingness to think outside the box. You know, this election is important: please cast your vote and a vote for Brett Watson!

Maureen and Erik Jules, Arcata
