Small business owner and rancher Sue Hoek on Wednesday announced her campaign for the Nevada County Board of Supervisors, District 4.

Hoek, 60, has served as president of the Nevada County Farm Bureau. She’s also served on the Nevada County Agricultural Advisory Commission and the Nevada County Resource Conservation District. Hoek also is a member of the Penn Valley Chamber of Commerce, multiple cattlemen’s associations and Twin Cities Church, a release states.

District 4 Supervisor Hank Weston said he wouldn’t seek a fourth term. He declined Wednesday to make a formal endorsement for his successor.

“Sue is an outstanding individual,” Weston said. “She loves this county. She’s well versed in all the issues.”

No other candidates have formally announced for District 4.

Sue lives and works on her family ranch in Penn Valley which has been in operation since the late 1870’s.

“My roots run very deep in our community,” Hoek states in a release. “I am a 5th generation Nevada County resident, and I have witnessed many changes over the years here. As a small business owner and rancher I understand what it takes to keep a business operating. Now more than ever we need to ensure our county is fiscally sound, and that we protect our core services no matter what happens to the economy.”

Hoek lives in Penn Valley with her husband Robert, her pack of dogs, and the rest of their livestock. For more information on Hoek, visit: http://www.SueHoek.com
