The candidates are: Pat Morton (the current mayor who is currently serving a four-year term), along with Larry Douglas, BJ Pearson, Kim Scott, Timothy Kreth, Stan Pefler and Max Bradshaw. Write-in candidates Those who wish to mount a write-in campaign may do so from Sept. 10 through Oct. 23, by filing the necessary paperwork with the county elections office. Write-in candidates must file the required paperwork, in order to be considered a legitimate candidate. Write-in candidacies are possible only for those races that will appear on the ballot. An open seat that attracted only one candidate is closed and won't be on the ballot, such as was the case with Feather River College Trustee Area 1, where Trent Saxton was the only individual to submit nomination papers. Saxton automatically will assume that seat on the board.
