As of the close of business on Tuesday, July 19, only one North Coast candidate had filed for election or re-election to a local agency board.
John Russell, appointed director on the San Simeon Community Services District, has filed his paperwork to retain his seat for a two-year term, according to the County Clerk-Recorder’s list posted at http://bit.ly/2a0ptpy.
Jerry Wood, active in the campaign to retain local control of the Cambria Fire Department, was to have gone to the Clerk-Recorder’s office Tuesday to possibly begin the process of filing for a seat on the Cambria Community Healthcare District.
Filing for the offices began Monday, July 18. Declarations of candidacy and nomination papers can be filed at the County Clerk-Recorder’s office through Aug. 12, although nonincumbents have until Aug. 17 to file if a current director or trustee doesn’t seek another term.
Prospective candidates should call 805-781-5228 to make an appointment to sign up.
