Election update

Larry Wahl wants a third term, and Randall Stone is seeking a county position

District 2 Butte County Supervisor Larry Wahl announced this week that he’s seeking a third term on that panel in the upcoming primary election. The incumbent supervisor was elected to that post in June 2010, following a defeat of longtime Supervisor Jane Dolan. He’d previously spent a decade on the Chico City Council.

In a press release, Wahl (pictured), who is being challenged by businesswoman and arts maven Debra Lucero, noted job creation and public safety as priorities.

Meanwhile, according to the Butte County Elections Office, Chico City Councilman Randall Stone appears to be challenging incumbent Diane Brown for the position of Butte County assessor. Brown was elected in 2014, defeating four other challengers, following the retirement of Fred Holland, who’d held the post since 2009.
