Ed Scofield seeks fourth term as Nevada County supervisor

District 2 Supervisor Ed Scofield on Tuesday announced his intention to run for reelection to a fourth term on the Nevada County Board of Supervisors.

If he wins a return to his District 2 seat, Scofield would become the first supervisor to serve four terms since Henry Loehr, who was a Nevada County supervisor from 1945-1968, according to county records. Loehr and J.C. Coughlan, the latter of whom totaled 24 years on the board between 1937-1960, were the longest-serving supervisors.

If elected to a fourth term, Scofield would potentially serve 16 years. Since the county’s incorporation in 1851, only nine supervisors have served 16 years or longer.

Scofield became supervisor in 2008 after retiring as CEO of the Nevada County Fairgrounds.

“I have experience in many areas of county, state and even federal government; and I know I have the experience and passion to continue serving Nevada County and my constituents for four more years,” Scofield wrote in a release. “I look forward to the opportunity to continue to represent South County as the supervisor for District 2.”

The district encompasses Alta Sierra, Lake of the Pines and unincorporated areas along Highway 49.
