Another individual has picked up papers to run for District 1 Supervisor, bringing the total of interested people thus far to four.
Jason Christian joins Dwight Ceresola, John Pato and Ryan Rogers in seeking 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.
The governor’s office has been asked to appoint an individual to the seat, but no timeline for that appointment has been determined and now the March 3 Primary election is looming.
In addition to District 1, the electorate will be voting for representatives for Districts 2 and 4.
Incumbent Kevin Goss is seeking another term for District 2 (representing Indian Valley the Feather River Canyon, parts of Quincy and a portion of the Highway 70 corridor to Camp Layman) and is being challenged by fellow Indian Valley resident Phil Shannon, as well as Greg Cameron who resides in Greenhorn east of Quincy.
Plumas County Sheriff Greg Hagwood, who is retiring from his current position at the end of the year, seeks 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. Thus far, only one person has taken out papers, but has since indicated that they are not intending to run for the position.
Also on the March 3 Primary ballot will be District 2 Superior Court Judge (currently held by Doug Prouty). To date, no one has taken out papers to challenge him.
Once the filing period has closed, and the candidate list is complete, this newspaper will print bios of each of the individuals seeking office as well questions and answers.
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
