Former City Councilman Bob Evans to challenge Tami Ritter, Norm Rosene for supervisor’s seat

Bob Evans (pictured), a former member of the Chico City Council, announced via Facebook over the weekend that he’s jumping into the race for the District 3 seat of the Butte County Board of Supervisors.

The position is currently held by longtime Supervisor Maureen Kirk, who told the CN&R a few months ago that she plans to retire.

Evans’ announcement brings the number of candidates to three. Tami Ritter, another former member of the Chico City Council, was the first to start campaigning. She was followed by Norm Rosene, a local dentist who, along with his wife, founded Odyssey Winery & Vineyards.
