Engel was the top vote earner with 608; Judd had 542 and Berg garnered 123. Since no candidate received 50 percent plus one of the total votes cast, the seat goes to a runoff in November. Berg wrote in her statement, "And, I received so many calls from folks asking me to 'run next time.' So, I have decided to push forward with a write in campaign for the November election. Although I will be at a minor disadvantage because my name will not be on tl~e ballot, we are now on more a level playing field in terms of time remaining to campaign." Can a candidate who lost in the primary run as a write-in in the general election? This was uncharted territory for the county elections office, but after consulting with the Secretary of State's office, officials deemed that Berg could indeed become a formal write-in candidate when the filing period opens Sept. 8. Melinda Rother, the assistant clerk/recorder, said her office did a lot of research and determined "we can't find anything that says she can't, so we deem that she can." Rother explained that local elections are not part of the "top-two primary" that resulted from Proposition 14, which prohibits candidates from running as write-ins in the general election. Cathy Darling-Allen, Shasta County's clerk and registrar of voters, agreed. "This has come up several times," she said during a phone interview June 20. "Local races are not top two, so it would be allowed." Janice Thomas and Mark "Bubba" Rother share recipes during the inaugural Guest Chef Night Throw-Down, which took place at The Knook on June 14.
