Nevada City council race takes shape

Nevada City Councilman David McKay said Wednesday he is seeking a third term on the Council, while Mayor Sally Harris said she won’t seek re-election.

“I have worked hard during the turbulent times at City Hall to keep focused on what the voters have told me they care about such as traffic and neighborhood quality,” McKay said.

Harris and McKay both cited a development impact agreement with Deer Creek Park II, just outside the city limits, as a major achievement during their tenure.

Harris also cited the city getting its financial house in order as an accomplishment.

“For the present moment, I need to take a break from city government and attend to family and other personal matters,” Harris said.

McKay joins PowerUp-NC co-founder Reinette Senum and city planning commissioner Robert Bergman in the June 3 race for three city council seats. Longtime Councilman Steve Cottrell is seeking the city clerk post instead of his council seat.
