Ridge recall

Paradise Irrigation District to hold two elections for new board members

Ridge residents who organized a successful petition drive to shake up the Paradise Irrigation District’s board of directors with a recall election are holding a community meeting to tout their candidates and discuss the town’s water issues at 6:30 tonight (Oct. 20) at the Paradise Senior Center.

In September, recall proponents turned in enough signatures to require a special election, scheduled for Jan. 24, aimed at replacing board members Larry Duncan and Sep Carola. In the meantime, five candidates are running for two seats open in the Nov. 8 election.

In addition, the League of Women Voters of Butte County is holding two forums for the PID candidates on the November ballot next Monday (Oct. 24) at Paradise Town Hall.
