On 6-8-10, expect voting time again!
And we want to hear from all Shasta County Primary Election candidates – both opposed and unopposed. Where are our manners? Allow us to extend a proper invitation.
Dear Shasta County election hopefuls,
You are cordially invited to submit a written statement for publication on anewscafe.com. We have inquiring minds, and we want to know why you believe you’re the best person for the job, and why we should elect you for the office you seek on June 8.
Specifically, we invite Board of Supervisors District 5 candidates: Chris Young, Les Baugh and Corkey Harmon; and Assessor/Recorder candidates Ron Largent and Leslie Morgan; and Auditor/Controller candidates Randal Faulkner and Connie Regnell; and County Clerk candidates Russell Hunt and Cathy Darling; and, finally, District Attorney candidates Gerald “Jerry” Benito and Steve Carlton.
We also would like to hear from those candidates running unopposed, such as David Kehoe, Board of Supervisors, District 1; Tom Bosenko, Sheriff/Coroner; Lori Scott, Treasurer/Tax Collector/Public Administrator, Lori Scott; and Thomas Armelino, Superintendent of Schools.
A few guidelines: We ask that candidates please keep their statements to less than 700 words. Also, we prefer candidates focused on themselves rather than their opponents.
Last, please include a photo and a short bio (won’t be included with the word count), and email everything to firstname.lastname@example.org by May 10 and it will be published by May 31.
May the best men and women win.
