Nevada County sheriff’s association endorses Smethers
The Nevada County Deputy Sheriff’s Association has endorsed Lt. Bill Smethers for sheriff.
The endorsement came after the group interviewed the three candidates, heard their presentations and attended campaign events. It then held a vote on whether to endorse and who, with an overwhelming majority choosing Smethers.
“The men and women of the Deputy Sheriff’s Association looks forward to working with Bill Smethers and we support his vision for the future of the office,” the association said in a statement.
Smethers will face former Grass Valley Police Chief John Foster and sheriff’s Capt. Shannan Moon in the June 5 election.
