It’s an election year, and many Plumas County offices will be on the ballot. One of the first officials to announce his intention to run is Sheriff Todd Johns, who alerted the Board of Supervisors and Plumas News today, Jan. 12.
Johns was appointed by the Plumas County Board of Supervisors to serve out the unfinished term of his predecessor Greg Hagwood, so this will be the first time he faces an election.
While Johns could retire in May, he said he is seeking to retain his position because “there is still a lot of work to be done in the county to rebuild our communities.” While his hometown of Greenville was decimated by the fire, he said that all areas of the county were impacted. Since his appointment, fire and COVID-19 have dominated his tenure.
Plumas News will announce other individuals who intend to run for office as that information becomes available.
The following local offices will be on the June 7 Primary ballot:
- County Supervisor District 3 (Chester/Lake Almanor)
- County Supervisor District 5 (Graeagle/East Quincy)
- Auditor – Controller
- County Clerk – Recorder – Registrar of Voters
- District Attorney – Public Administrator
- Sheriff – Coroner
- County Superintendent of Schools
- Treasurer – Tax Collector
The deadline for filing documents is 5 p.m. on March 11. The primary is June 7 and the General Election is Nov. 8. More information can be found at
