New Candidates In Calaveras Supes Race
Ronald Huebert of Mountain Ranch has thrown his hat into the race for District 2 Calaveras County supervisor. “I will contribute honesty, consistency, fairness and conviction regarding my service to the citizens of District 2 and the county of Calaveras,” Huebert said.
Huebert retired as a volunteer from the Central Calaveras Fire Protection District a month ago. He says he´s been on many fires in the county. He also was fire commissioner and volunteer fireman for Alturas Rural Fire Department.
Huebert and his wife, Kathy, settled in Mountain Ranch seven years ago. Kathy works for the San Joaquin County Office of Education as an administrative secretary. She is also the president of the Calaveras County Board of Education. Huebert said he wouldn´t be running if Supervisor Paul Stein were still in the race.
“I´ve been very pleased with the direction of the county. Stein did a good job representing District 2,” he said.
Before Stein announced his bid for a position in Sacramento, Huebert said, it didn´t cross his mind to run for supervisor. Now he says, “Why not?” Huebert also said, “I think (Stein) would be perfect in Sacramento.”
“I want to continue what´s going on in the county,” Huebert said. The honesty of the people, clean air, wildlife, beautiful trees, no fog, and easy access to fishing, makes Calaveras County a special place, he said. Huebert said he loves the “quality of life and quality of the people.”
Steve Wilensky of Glencoe is also running for the District 2 seat. Wilensky runs Humbug Creek Farm, which produces organic fruit and cider.
The primary election will be held March 2, 2004. The general election will take place in November 2004.
