Former elected officials endorse Shannan Moon for Nevada County Sheriff

Submitted to The Union

Shannan Moon’s campaign announced endorsements by three former elected officials: Paul Matson and Robert Bergman, both former Nevada City mayors, and former District 1 Supervisor Peter Van Zant, according to a release.

“It was my privilege to serve Nevada City for 20 years as a city council member including several terms as mayor,” Matson said in the release. “I had the opportunity to work with our local Public Safety agencies. Shannan Moon will work well with all of them. She has the comprehensive experience combined with the right credentials and sensibilities to do a great job as our Nevada County Sheriff”.

Bergman has worked with many public safety agencies and believes Shannan has all the right qualities to succeed as Sheriff.

“I developed a solid relationship with our police department, and one that I’ve maintained,” Bergman said. “I listened to them closely when we talked about community policing, the department’s customer service and leadership issues, and I took in what they were explaining to me. From those conversations I now have a strong sense of the qualities and abilities the Nevada County Sheriff should have: Leadership, intelligence, experience, strength, balance, fairness and character are on my short list. I am delighted to see all of those and more in Shannan Moon, and my support of her is absolute and offered without hesitation.”

“Watching Shannan work her way up through the ranks of the sheriff’s office, ultimately earning the rank of captain tells me she has the experience to lead the sheriff’s office into the future,” Van Zant said. “Shannan stands for innovation and transparency which is exactly what Nevada County needs right now.”
