Outgoing Nevada County Supervisor Terry Lamphier pulled papers Tuesday morning in preparation for his campaign to win a seat on the Grass Valley City Council.

Back in June, Lamphier lost his bid for re-election as the District 3 supervisor to Grass Valley Mayor Dan Miller, who will be vacating his council seat for the supervisor post.

“People deserve respectful, thoughtful and fair treatment by their elected leaders,” Lamphier told The Union early Tuesday. “I have a nearly four-year record as county supervisor of being that person and over 10 years of public and community service. I look forward to serving on the council.”

Lamphier could not be reached for further comment Tuesday, but the candidate did issue a press release detailing the thrust of his city council campaign. They include respectful representation, quality police and fire services, good public works, less burdensome regulation and fiscal responsibility.

“Locals stay here and new people move here because they love Grass Valley the way it is,” Lamphier wrote. “I have a strong record of protecting our small town values, and I’m eager to continue serving our community. We can’t build our way out of problems, resulting in more traffic and the need for more tax-supported services. We have what we need. Let’s build on our strengths.”

Lamphier joins Jim Firth and Jerri Glover as challengers who have announced their intention to run for the two open seats on the council. Incumbent Jason Fouyer will also be on the ballot in November.

The filing deadline for the Grass Valley City Council election has been extended to 5 p.m. Aug. 13, since Miller, an incumbent, will not be seeking re-election. Interested candidates can find out more by calling (530) 274-4330 or visiting Grass Valley City Hall.
