With Friday, July 18 being the deadline to file, one more candidate has indicated he will run for the District 2 seat on the El Dorado County Board of Supervisors.
Chris Amaral, the El Dorado Hills resident who ran unsuccessfully against Bill Schultz for the position of County Recorder-Clerk, has opened a committee and signaled his intention to run.
Amaral describes himself as a program leader for a consulting firm.
He joins Jennifer Nutting, Claire McNeal, David Pratt, Shiva Frentzen, George Turnboo and Janet Saitman who previously indicated their intention to run.
A special election to fill the seat will be held on Sept. 9 in a winner-take-all contest.
Officials in the Elections Department said the deadline for all the candidates to pay their fees and submit all the required paperwork is July 18.
