Tuolumne County Supervisor-Elect, Evan Royce, is patiently waiting until January 2011 before he can take a seat as District 3’s Supervisor.
Royce was KVML’s Friday KVML “Newsmaker of the Day”.
Royce was in a three person race for the seat during the June primary and managed to receive over of 50% of the vote. Because of that, there is no run off in the general election this November.
An an owner of Royce Construction & Design, Inc, Royce feels that his background, such as knowing the numerous local permiting processes, will allow him to focus on economic development in Tuolumne County.
Royce is a Sonora Union High School graduate of 2001 and attended Cal Poly San Luis Obispo from 2001-2003. Royce majored in Civil Engineering.
The current District 3 Supervisor is Teri Murrison. Murrison is giving up the seat after unsuccessfully running for the 25th State Assembly District seat during the primary.
While waiting for January, Royce is using the time to become familiar with various issues affecting Tuolumne County and currently serves as Chairman of the Tuolumne City Sanitary District. Royce also enjoys fishing, hunting, camping and hiking.
The “Newsmaker of the Day” is heard each weekday morning on AM 1450 KVML at 6:47, 7:47 and 8:47am.
