Candidates gear up for another election year
INLAND EMPIRE – (INT) – Another election year is about to open scarcely 15-months after the last one closed with the election of President Donald Trump.
While another presidential election won’t happen until 2020, voters will have a lot of decisions to make this year topped with their choices for Congress, California governor, state senator and several state legislative offices beginning with the June 5th Primary Election.
Locally, several people have already stepped up to the plate to make a run for county offices.
In the Inland Empire, the focus is on races for county supervisor, sheriff, district attorney and other offices.
In Riverside County, incumbent Sheriff-Coroner Stan Sniff will face challenges. Three seats on the Board of Supervisors have already drawn an assortment of candidates.
A similar scenario is shaping up in San Bernardino County where a former Congresswoman has resurfaced to challenge an incumbent county supervisor.
At the municipal level, two ballot measures concerning marijuana dispensaries will be decided June 5th. A special election is being held in Adelanto to fill a city council seat left vacant by the departure of the former mayor pro Tem.
Candidates have until March 9th to file their nomination papers.
