Kirk to run again

Supervisor plans to run for re-election

Butte County Supervisor Maureen Kirk announced she will run for re-election next year in the 3rd District, which includes northeastern Chico, Forest Ranch and Cohasset. Kirk (pictured) was elected to the board in November 2006, and re-elected in 2010.

“Fiscal responsibility, economic development and Butte County job creation are foremost in my vision for my constituents and our county in the next four years,” Kirk said in the press release announcing her intentions. “The county has gained strong financial footing and I’m committed to making sure we keep our fiscal affairs in order as a first priority.”

Prior to her election to the Board of Supervisors, Kirk served two terms as a Chico City Council member, including a term as mayor beginning in 2003.
