l IOA Wednesday, Dec. 19, 2001 From Page One Featherl~l ~River Bull~ Continued Worn page .II.A Williams says that, during the 14 years she has worked in the clerk-recorder's office, she has received four promo- tions. She says she has lived in Plumas County for 33 years, attended Feather River Col- lege, and received special training from the California Association of Clerks and Elections Officials-Recorders Association. Williams, 44, is emphasiz- ing "strong family values" and "a commitment to com- munity involvement." Williams says her involve- ment includes serving as a public information officer for emergency services; and memberships in the Plumas County Employees Associa- tion, arts commission, and museum association; she has been a fair board volunteer, Quincy High School volun- teer and belongs to the Quin. cy Bass Club. As for her philosophy, Williams says, "Preservation of our county land records and historical documents is vital as well as assuring voter confidence in our elections." Williams says her goals in. clude "guiding voters into a more user-friendly voting technology" proyiding accu- rate rapid results." The candidate takes credit for designing a voter registra- tion and election tracking database that "has saved the county thousands of dollars." Williams also explained that her "work in developing records management--our records retention processing facility---eliminates the stor- age of many hard copy docu- ments in several depart- ments." In addition, Williams takes credit for balancing more ney Jeff Cunan will take on incumbent James Reichle, who will be challenged for the seat for first time since 1992. Cunan, 40, says he is "a fo- cused prosecutor with a com- mand of criminal law through a lifetime of study." Cunan worked his way through U.C. Berkeley as an investigator/law clerk, be- came an Alameda County deputy district attorney, then ran a law f'ann before becom- ing Plumas County's felony deputy. He says he has "successful- ly (handled) every type of criminal case." Cunan, who sometimes skipped grammar school as a child to watch trials, moved to Plumas County five years ago with his wife and chil- dren. Since that time, "our life has taken deep root, includ- ing the addition of a third son to our family. The pristine beauty of these mountains creates our only imaginable lifestyle; yet there are prob- lems in paradise." The problems include the sale of illegal drugs, he says. "My focus is the eradica- tion of methamphetamine dealers; they are the princi- pal cause of the most serious crime in this county, from child and spousal abuse to homicide, not to mention the general poisonous influence methamphetamine has on our community," Cunan said. "I also see divisive alien- ation between various gov- ernment entities as a disser- vice to the citizens who em- ploy them," Cunan says. "I have the skills to overcome these problems." Cunan says that, during "these challenging times, I hope you agree that people of my character in public office is necessary to a well-func- tioning democracy and a just than $500,000 in four budgets criminal justice system." i eachyear.

"I have insisted on an inde- pendent district attorney's of- fice that handles all cases with the same evenhanded integrity," Reichle says. Reichle also says he has successfully supervised up to 25 employees and managed his budgets responsibly. He also says he "personally tried and convicted" Michael Franklin and Reta Orner. Reichle says his philoso- phy regarding his position is to hold "people accountable for their criminal acts by convicting the guilty, seeking appropriate punishment and restitution for victims." Reichle says that crime prevention also is part of the job. "I support strictly super- vised intensive rehabilitation programs, such as drug court where program violations re- sult in jail time," he says. "My truancy reduction and school threat assessment pro- grams improve school and community safety." He adds, "I have been and will continue to be outspoken on Plumas County govern- ment issues." Sheriff Len Gardner will be opposed by challenger Terry Bergstrand, who is the cur- rent undersheriff. Gardner, 59, has been in law enforcement for more than three decades. His positions have includ- ed patrol, investigations, or- ganized crime, intelligence and patrol and administra- tive sergeant. Gardner was elected sheriff in 1998 in a landslide victory against Walter Nelsen. The sheriff also possesses a lifetime teaching credential and taught criminal justice for more than 20 years. Gardner has a manage- ment certificate from Police Officers Standards and Training and a bachelor's de- gree in public administra- tion. "As sheriff, negotiations with the county were re- opened to obtain raises for deputies to keep them here and two K-gs were added," Gardner says, outlining some of his accomplishments dur- ing the past three years. In addition, Gardner says he has brought in about $1.56 million in a host of grants that have, among other things, resulted in four new positions at the department. "We have a juvenile officer to address the needs of our youth and an administrative sergeant to handle (officer) training and oversee the ani- mal shelter," Gardner says. "We have an excellent con- tract with the city of Portola for enforcement services." The sheriff also notes that communications equipment is being obtained in order to set up a "countywide dis- patch for law enforcement, fire and emergency, medical services." Meanwhile, Gardner says, "We are also working hard with sunrounding counties to help fight the manufacture of illegal drugs throughout the north state." Bergstrand, 54, says he has 27 years experience in law enforcement, including 22 in Plumas County. The last years have been spent as undersheriff, which has enabled Bergstrand to "observe and analyze every component" of the department. Bergstrand says he can bring together the depart- ment, calling himself "a man of integrity and honesty." "I am a unifier who will bring together people with talent and expertise to reach our common goals and solidi- fy the department to a cohe- sive unit which strives to do all it can in the areas of crime prevention, open communi- cation and sound fiscal man- agement," Bergstrand says.

In addition, Bergstrand says, he holds a lifetime teaching credential, awarded by the faculty at Feather Riv- er College. "My dedication to the peo- ple of Plumas County has been proven," Bergstrand says. "My effectiveness has been demonstrated by a his- tory of outstanding perfor- mance reviews." T rK-.Ix llK-tor Both Assistant County Treasurer-Tax Collector Gin- ny Dunbar and Collections Officer Susie Grant are com- peting for the opportunity to replace treasurer-tax collec: tor Barbara Coates, who is re- tiring. Dunbar, 56, has worked in financial-related sectors for 36 years, including 19 as as- sistant treasurer-tax collec- tor and 17 in the banking in- dustry. The Portola High School graduate says she is certified in tax collection, personnel management and the treasur- er's manual. "I have been involved in a management position in the transition of the county from manually kept records to the new electronic program for tax collections and fiscal management," Dunbar says. "The scope of my experi- ence in the area of investing the county's money to maxi- mize safe interest earnings and apportioning those earn- ings best meets the legal re- quirements of qualifying to run for treasurer," Dunbar adds.
