Would-be supervisors: Retired politicians want more
SAN BERNARDINO – (INT) – The list of applicants for a vacant seat on the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors is a ‘who’s who’ of those who are – or have held – elective office in local county and municipal government.
About one-fourth are women.
Among the 48 applicants are former mayors Judy Valles of San Bernardino, John Longville of Rialto, T. Milford Harrison of Loma Linda and current San Bernardino Mayor R. Carey Davis who lost his re-election bid in November.
Also on the list are one-time county supervisors Dennis Hansberger and Neil Derry and Big Bear radio station co-owner and city councilman Richard T. Herrick.
Each candidate will respond to ten questions. Four currently-serving supervisors will pare down the lengthy list to the semi-finalists who will be interviewed beginning December 11th.
The winner will serve out the remaining two years of former Third District supervisor James Ramos’ term. He was elected to the State Assembly in November.
The Third District covers an extensive area along the county’s southern boundary from Grand Terrace to the Morongo Valley and portions of the San Bernardino Mountains and the High Desert.
The non-partisan supervisor’s position pays $201,000 annually.
