Nevada County political races start in earnest
It appears that four candidates will fight for two Grass Valley City Council seats, though people still have until 5 p.m. Wednesday to declare for the office.
Incumbent Ben Aguilar, as well as Bob Branstrom, Hilary Hodge and Steven Slack filed the paperwork necessary for a City Council run.
Council member Jason Fouyer isn’t running for re-election.
The deadline to file for several local offices was 5 p.m. Friday. However, that deadline is extended to 5 p.m. Wednesday if an incumbent doesn’t run, as is the case for the Grass Valley council.
That’s also the case for two seats on the Nevada Irrigation District’s board.
Ricki Heck is running for the Division 1 seat. Incumbent Nancy Weber isn’t seeking re-election.
Bruce Herring is running for the Division 2 seat. Incumbent John Drew isn’t running.
Incumbent Will Morebeck said in June he’d run for the Division 4 seat, as did Laura Peters. That district lies in Placer County. Placer elections officials couldn’t be reached Friday afternoon.
