With 5 p.m. Friday being the deadline for contestants to formally declare their candidacy, the number of incumbents facing challengers this year is increasing.

The latest is Bill Schultz, El Dorado County Recorder-Clerk.

He is no longer alone in the race; El Dorado Hills resident Chris Amaral has decided to also run for the position.

Amaral describes himself as a program leader for a consulting firm. The Elections Department confirmed that he registered to vote in the county on Feb. 27. 

Other incumbents facing challengers include Auditor-Controller Joe Harn, CPA, who will face Mike Owen, CPA; and Treasurer-Tax Collector C.L. Raffety, CPA, who will face termed El Dorado County Supervisor Ron Briggs.

Unopposed incumbents include Jeremy Meyers for Superintendent of Schools, Karl Weiland for Assessor, Vern Pierson for District Attorney, John D’Agostini for Sheriff-Coroner-Public Administrator and Rich Briner for Surveyor.

In the District 4 Supervisor’s race, eight candidates have shown interest, including Scott McNeil (board member, CPCSD — Cameron Park), Tim Palmer (educator — Cool), Mike Pettibone (businessman — Shingle Springs), Michael Ranalli (businessman — Lotus), Dave Souza (rancher — Garden Valley), Winston Pingrey (private investigator — Shingle Springs), Howard Penn (businessman — Coloma) and Lori Parlin (community activist — Shingle Springs).

In the District 5 Supervisor’s race, six contestants have taken out papers including Gerri Grego (project manager), Kenneth Curtzwiler (businessman), Sue Novasel (businesswoman) and Angela Swanson (city council member), all from South Lake Tahoe. They are joined by Kevin Brown (businessman) and Teresa Piper (retail clerk) of Pollock Pines.

Candidates for Superior Court Judge, Office 1, are Vicki Ashworth, David Combellack and Joseph Weinberger. In Office 3, the sole candidate for Superior Court Judge is Suzanne Kingsbury. In Office 4, the sole candidate for Superior Court Judge is Steven Bailey. Candidates for Superior Court Judge, Office 5, are Joseph Hoffman and Dylan Mary Sullivan. For Superior Court Judge, Office 6, the sole candidate is James Robert Wagoner.

Jason Mallory, a writer/journalist from South Lake Tahoe, is running for U.S. Representative, 4th District, against incumbent Tom McClintock.

Bogdan “Bo” Ambrozewicz has been joined by Erick Hinzman and Alma Marie Triche in running for governor against Gov. Jerry Brown.

While many candidates have taken out papers to run, few have formally declared their candidacy and paid their fees.

So until Friday afternoon rolls around, it’s uncertain how many may actually stand for election.
