The March Primary election cycle is underway and candidates have begun picking up papers to run for supervisor in three districts.
The first candidate to declare his candidacy was Plumas County Sheriff Greg Hagwood, who is retiring from his current position at the end of the year.
He wants to succeed Lori Simpson as supervisor in District 4, which is comprised of much of Quincy, as well as Meadow Valley and Bucks Lake. Simpson announced earlier this year that she would not seek another term.
Supervisor Kevin Goss who represents District 2 announced that he plans to seek another term and has picked up papers to run for the position as has Phil Shannon, a former Plumas County sheriff’s deputy. Both men seek to represent the area that includes Indian Valley, the Feather River Canyon, parts of Quincy and a portion of the Highway 70 corridor to Camp Layman.
And thus far, three individuals — Dwight Ceresola, John Pato and Ryan Rogers — have visited the county election’s office to pick up papers for District 1 supervisor. The position has been vacant since Michael Sanchez resigned earlier this year for health reasons.
The governor’s office has been asked to appoint an individual to the seat, but no timeline for that appointment has been determined.
District 1 represents portions of Eastern Plumas including Portola and the Sierra Valley.
Also on the March Primary ballot will be District 2 Superior Court Judge (currently held by Doug Prouty), as well as state and federal offices:
– U.S. Senate
– U.S. Representative District 1
– State Senate District 1
– State Assembly District 1
Plumas County voters will participate in an all-mail ballot for the March Primary.
