More than a year removed from her two terms on Redding's City Council, Missy McArthur has decided she has work yet to do. The Redding native hosted a launch party at the new Redding Sheraton Hotel at Turtle Bay, kicking off her campaign for the District 1 seat on the Shasta County Board of Supervisors.

"I love my community," McArthur said before the event. "I've been here all my life and I devoted eight years to city council, and I realize there are still some issues that need to be conquered, and those are at the county level."

About 50 supporters were on hand for the party at the new Redding hotel, which McArthur reminds was a project she supported while on city council. She plans to campaign on her reputation as someone who gets the job done.

"Ideas are great, but you have to implement them," McArthur said. "You can't just have the idea. You have to make the idea happen. So I have that personality, drive, follow through, get it done kind of mentality."

It's unknown if David Kehoe, a supervisor since 1998, is running for re-election in November.
