June Primary races are shaping up for Plumas positions

The June 7 Primary is exactly four months from today, and races for seven countywide positions and two supervisorial districts will be on the ballot.

The in-lieu filing period is underway. Elected officials and supervisorial candidates can file petitions for signatures in-lieu of filing fees. These petitions serve to lower the cost of filing for candidacy, and to demonstrate support for the candidate.

The following local offices will be on the June 7 Primary ballot. If an individual has picked up in-lieu filing fee packets, it is so noted.

  •  County Supervisor District 3 (Chester/Lake Almanor): Tom McGowan
  •  County Supervisor District 5 (Graeagle/East Quincy): Incumbent Jeff Engel, Mimi Garner and Fletcher Darquea
  •  Assessor: Incumbent Cindie Froggatt and Amy Hendrickson
  •  Auditor – Controller
  •  County Clerk – Recorder – Registrar of Voters: Incumbent Marcy DeMartile
  •  District Attorney: Incumbent David Hollister
  •  Sheriff – Coroner: Incumbent Todd Johns
  •  County Superintendent of Schools: Dwight Pierson and William Roderick
  •  Treasurer – Tax Collector: Incumbent Julie White

Of note, current Auditor-Controller Roberta Allen has resigned her position to serve in Sierra County so there is no incumbent, and the current County Superintendent of Schools Terry Oestreich is retiring at the end of this school year. Oestreich was the appointed Plumas Unified School District Superintendent as well as the elected county superintendent.


The filing deadline for the Petition in Lieu paperwork is Feb. 9, and the Candidate filing period begins Feb. 14. 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
