Candidate misses deadline
Announces he will run as a write-in
And now there are four.
John Pato announced that he will be a write-in candidate for the District 1 Supervisor seat, after he missed the deadline to submit the required paperwork. He joins Dwight Ceresola, Jason Christian and Bill Powers.
The four men seek to represent the district that includes Portola and Eastern Plumas County. The position has been vacant since Michael Sanchez resigned earlier this year for health reasons.
County Clerk Kathy Williams said that the addition of an official write-in candidate requires her office to handle those ballots differently as they all must be hand tallied.
There are also four vying for District 2 Supervisor: Incumbent Kevin Goss, Quincy resident Mike Grant, Indian Valley resident Phil Shannon, and Greg Cameron who resides in Greenhorn east of Quincy. District 2 includes Indian Valley, the Feather River Canyon, parts of Quincy and a portion of the Highway 70 corridor to Camp Layman.
Just two will appear on the ballot for District 4: Plumas County Sheriff Greg Hagwood and Melissa Bishop, a longtime animal control officer who is now a certified nurse assistant.
District 4 comprises much of Quincy, as well as Meadow Valley and Bucks Lake.
District 2 Superior Court Judge Doug Prouty is unchallenged in his bid for another term on the bench.
There are also state and federal offices on the ballot:
– U.S. Senate
– U.S. Representative District 1
– State Senate District 1
– State Assembly District 1
