Bean will be running against incumbent Linda Atkins and Humboldt State employee Joe Bonino in the November election.

”As a disabled, unemployed member of this community, I feel that I can offer a unique perspective for Ward 2 that the other candidates do not have,” Bean said in an interview Wednesday. “I feel that it is the council's job to represent me, and others like me. I can help to do that.”
