The list of candidates for the June 3 primary election has been determined for races in San Luis Obispo County, as a final filing deadline closed this week.
In four races, the incumbent chose not to run for re-election, so the filing deadline was extended from last Friday to Wednesday.
County district attorney
Two candidates are seeking to succeed District Attorney Gerry Shea, who is not seeking re-election. The candidates are Tim Covello, 52, the current assistant district attorney, and Deputy District Attorney Dan Dow, 43.

Julie Rodewald announced in January that she would not seek re-election. Three people running for the seat are her second- in-command Tommy Gong, Deputy Clerk-Recorder Amanda King, and Caltrans Business Management District Chief Ann Danko.
County superintendent of schools
Cayucos Elementary School District Superintendent Jim Brescia, 49, is running unopposed after Julian Crocker chose not to run for re-election. With no other contenders, Brescia has essentially won the seat without the need for a campaign.
Morro Bay City Council
No new candidates submitted their names for the City Council race this week, after the deadline was extended because George Leage is not running for re-election. Three candidates are running for two council seats: John Headding, incumbent Nancy Johnson, and Matt Makowetski.
Candidates were already determined Friday for two county Board of Supervisors races because incumbents filed papers to run for re-election. In District 2, candidates are incumbent Bruce Gibson and Cambria Community Services District Director Muril Clift. In District 4, the candidates are incumbent Caren Ray, Nipomo businesswoman Lynn Compton and Arroyo Grande real estate broker Mike Byrd.
