Nevada County political races start in earnest
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.
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.
