Ever consider running for local office?
Through Aug. 7, voters in Citrus Heights have the opportunity to apply to run for a seat on four different governing boards this year, ranging from City Council to water district and school board.
Citrus Heights City Council: Two of the council’s five seats are up for election this November for the newly created District 1 and District 3 seats. Both positions are four-year terms. District 3 is a vacant seat that was created when the city drew new district maps last year. Two current council members, Bret Daniels and Jeff Slowey, are both located in District 1, meaning only one of them has the possibility to continue on the council.
Citrus Heights Water District: One of the three positions on the local water district’s board of directors are up for election. Each director represents a different portion of the district — and some areas of the city are covered by the neighboring districts. The seat is a four-year term, currently occupied by Caryl Sheehan.
San Juan Unified School District: Three seats on the five-member school board are up for election. The seats are four-year terms and are currently at-large positions, although this will likely change to by-trustee area elections for 2022. The three seats are currently occupied by Board President Paula Villascez, along with board members Pam Costa and Saul Hernandez.
San Juan Water District: Local residents also elect board members on thefive-member districtwhich supplies water to CHWD and other water districts in the area. Two at-large seats will be up for election, currently occupied by Pamela Tobin and Kenneth Miller.
Voters also elect members to the Los Rios Community College District governing board, as well as the Metro Fire District board. However board members for districts covering Citrus Heights were elected in 2018 and are not up for election until 2022.
The deadline to file paperwork to run for the positions is Aug. 7, unless the incumbent doesn’t file — which extends the deadline. More information and paperwork can be found on the City Clerk’s website and the Sacramento County Elections website.
