The following is a press release issued by the County of Mendocino:
“With the early campaign schedule prompted by California’s early Presidential Primary Election, I feel it is in the best interest of Fourth District residents that today I make a public announcement that I will not be seeking a fourth term,” Supervisor Dan Gjerde said.
The election of Fourth District Supervisor will coincide with California’s Presidential Primary Election on March 5, 2024. Candidates will need to begin filing papers as early as September 2023, which is only nine months away.
“With today’s announcement, residents who might want to consider service as a County Supervisor have proper notice. They can study the issues facing the County and can evaluate if the job is a good fit for the skills, effort, and time they are prepared to offer,” Gjerde said.
