Filing for local council, board seats starts Monday
Election season is back, with the opening Monday of the formal filing period for the Nov. 6 elections in Yuba and Sutter counties.
In Yuba City, the terms of John Dukes and John Miller are up on the City Council, as are the terms of City Clerk Terrel Locke and City Treasurer Steve Kroeger.
Marysville will see expiring terms for Jim Kitchen and Christina Billeci on the City Council as well as Mayor Bill Harris.
All three positions on the Marysville Levee Commission are also on the ballot.
In Live Oak, Mayor Gary Baland and City Councilman Rob Klotz have expiring terms, as do Wheatland Mayor Enita Elphick and council members Lisa McIntosh and Rick West.
The Yuba City Unified School District has three members of the board of trustees on the ballot — incumbents Jamie Ferreira, Herb Cooley and Sharman Kobayashi.
The Marysville Joint Unified School District has four seats on the ballot, now held by Glen Harris, Jim Flurry, Margaret Markle and Bernard Rechs.
Three terms for the Live Oak Unified School District Board of Trustees are for four-year terms, with Cindy Wingfield, Dave Owen and Terry Jones on the board in those seats. A fourth, the seat held by Ernie Rodriguez, is for two years because it's for the remainder of the term originally won by Jim Marsh, who died during his term.
Other, smaller school boards in both counties also have open filing periods now, as do special districts such as the Olivehurst Public Utility District.
The filing period ends Aug. 10, except in races where an incumbent chooses not to run for re-election. In those races, the filing period is then extended to Aug. 15.
