County roundup: New faces take seats as clerk, assessor

Two relatively tight races for county seats vacated by retiring incumbents topped the Nevada County ballot.

Lorraine Jewett-Burdick of Grass Valley won the Nevada County Clerk Recorder’s seat vacated by Bruce Bolinger, who retired this year. Jewett-Burdick received 17,432 votes to the 14,106 garnered by her opponent, Deni Dax of Nevada City.

Art Green of Nevada City will be the new Nevada

County assessor, replacing retiring incumbent Richard Allen, who was dogged during his last months in office by allegations that he did not reside in the county. Green received 18,538 votes in the election, while Todd Juvinall of Grass Valley received 13,833.

Elizabeth Martin won a tight race for District 4 County Supervisor, defeating Jeff Ingram. Martin, who won the primary as a write-in candidate against incumbent Rene Antonson, received 3,965 votes to Ingram’s 3,766.

Incumbent Nancy Palmer kept her position as the Area 6 Sierra Community College, winning 43,014 votes to fend off a challenge by Marianne Slade Troutman, who received 21,775 votes. James Hinman received 4,325 votes in his bid for the seat, while Jack Conner trailed with 1,432 votes.
