About Paul Pitino


I have been a resident of Arcata since 1993. I will strive to improve the quality of life in Arcata by focusing on a dog park for the City of Arcata, a campground for bicycle travelers, the upgrade of small neighborhood parks, the formation of a HSU/City of Arcata common interest commission, increased bus service on Thursday, Friday and Saturdays nights, the creation of satellite parking for downtown Arcata, investigating low cost solutions for the homeless crisis, and implementation of rental housing health and safety inspections.
