Business owners run for office

Norm Rosene announces run for Butte County supervisor, and Kasey Reynolds will be running for Chico City Council

Two Chico business owners are the latest to announce their candidacy in 2018.

Kasey Reynolds, owner of Shubert’s Ice Cream & Candy, announced Tuesday she’ll be running for Chico City Council instead of vying for Maureen Kirk’s open seat on the Butte County Board of Supervisors.

Norm Rosene, a dentist and owner of Odyssey Winery and Vineyards, will be a candidate for Kirk’s District 3 seat, according to his LinkedIn profile. He joins former Chico Councilwoman Tami Ritter, who announced her candidacy in September.

District 2 Supervisor Larry Wahl’s seat is also up for grabs. So far, Debra Lucero is the only one challenging Wahl, who is seeking re-election.

Others running for Chico City Council include incumbent Andrew Coolidge, Matt Gallaway, Scott Huber, Heather Minton, Jeremy Markley and Richard Ober.
