In a previous blog I announced that I am seeking reelection for a third term as Plumas County Supervisor representing District 3. The last day to file papers to run for election in June was the 7th of March. As of that date, I am the only candidate seeking that position.
It has been my honor to represent you for a little over 7 years. I want you to know that I take that responsibility very seriously and will do my utmost to be your advocate and represent your interests for the next 5 years.
It is interesting to note, however, that all Plumas County elected officials, with the exception of the District 5 Supervisor position, are running unopposed in this election. On my good days, I like to think that is because we are doing a good job; on my bad days, I fear it is because people are simply so fed up with government at all levels that they do not wish to be involved. It is disappointing and of great concern to me that no one was willing to seek any of the numerous positions currently up for election. I can’t help but wonder why?
I have asked the League of Women Voters to consider hosting an election forum in our area so that those of us who will be your Plumas County elected officials, even though we are running unopposed, will have a chance to introduce ourselves and answer any questions you may have about Plumas County government. If the League is unable or unwilling to host such a forum, I will set one up giving you the opportunity to interact with your Plumas County elected officials on a personal, one on one basis.
I sincerely appreciate your questions or comments; they help frame my decisions on your behalf. You may use the comment link at the top of this blog, the Contact form or email me at email@example.com.
I sincerely thank you for the support you have given me these past 7 years; it has been a privilege to serve my community and Plumas County!
