Another potential candidate means the Chico City Council race is heating up

The race for four open Chico City Council seats is heating up.

Earlier this month, Jovanni Tricerri, of the North Valley Community Foundation, turned in a candidate intention statement for the November general election. Tricerri (pictured) is NVCF’s director of community engagement. He is the chair of the Chico Police Community Advisory Board and a member of the board of directors of the Downtown Chico Business Association and the Chico Children’s Museum.

Tricerri joins six others who’ve already filed candidate intention statements: incumbents Sean Morgan, Tami Ritter, Ann Schwab and Randall Stone, as well as challengers Loretta Torres and Lisa Duarte. To qualify for the ballot, however, each must file additional paperwork by Aug. 12.
