Roger Rodoni Dies in Car Crash
Second District Supervisor Roger Rodoni was killed this afternoon in a car accident on Highway 101, just north of Rio Dell. Besides being a Humboldt County Supervisor, Rodoni was a rancher and was a teacher for nine years. He was born in Scotia. He was on his way to a fundraiser for his reelection campaign when the crash occurred. A biography can be found on his campaign website. His opponent Estelle Fennel announced that she is suspending her campaign. In the comments section on Heraldo's blog it says there’s a statewide rule that if the incumbent dies within 60 days of the election, the vote won’t count and another election day must be set.
