Bergman running for Nevada City Council

Nevada City Planning commissioner and local lawyer Robert Bergman announced Monday he’s running for City Council.

Bergman joins Reinette Senum, co-founder of PowerUp-NC, as one of two residents announcing their intentions to run for three City Council seats slated for the June 3 ballot.

The local lawyer’s announcement comes as speculation grows as to whether incumbents Councilman David McKay and Mayor Sally Harris will seek re-election. Councilman Steve Cottrell announced late last summer that he won’t seek re-election.

McKay and Harris, who haven’t announced their intentions, have until Friday to file their candidacy papers for the June 3 election.

In a press statement, Bergman described himself as someone who has the “necessary experience, skills and temperament to be an effective council member.”

Updating city design guidelines and considering how new building materials and modern construction techniques fit in the design guidelines is one of Bergman’s goals, according to his press statement. He also said he’ll work to reduce the city’s energy usage, if elected.
