Change is coming to our political landscape
Tuesday, March 18, 2014 — They say nothing is certain in life except death and taxes. Somebody needs to add change to that list, especially when it comes to the political landscape here in Susanville and Lassen County.
A number of elected officials have decided they will not seek elective office in the city and the county, making room for new candidates with new ideas. To many of our neighbors, that’s a good thing.
Voters in the city of Susanville will elect at least one new member to the city council. Councilmember Cheryl McDonald has decided not to seek re-election. Residents have an opportunity to select two councilmembers from seven candidates seeking office, including incumbent Mayor Rod De Boer. Two councilmembers will be elected in the June Primary Election and seated before July 1.
