RIPON – Mike Fisher is seeking re-election.
Jack DeLiddo opted against another term.
If the seat belonging to the current Ripon Unified school board president is unopposed, Fisher, who, under the newly rearranged Trustee Area 4 – included is the area in and around the Jack Tone Golf Course – Fisher would be declared the automatic winner.
As of Monday, no postings for either seat were listed on the San Joaquin County Registrar of Voters website.
DeLiddo lives in the Trustee Area 5 consisting of the Spring Creek Golf and Country Club coupled with a big chunk of farm land, specifically, around Colony Oak School.
An filing for the seat can be extended to Wednesday if no other candidate for the office files. Anyone interested must live Area 5. If two or more candidates emerge, the election here will still be handled at-large.
Meanwhile, Mayor Elden ‘Red’ Nutt announced not too long ago that he’s seeking re-election to the Ripon City Council.
Ditto that for incumbents Charlie Gay and Garry Krebbs, who were among those filing at the San Joaquin County Registrar of Voters office in Stockton prior to last Friday’s deadline for the November ballot.
They’re expected to receive a stiff challenge from Leo Zuber, Scott Lindsay and Robbie Orlando.
Zuber is a retired superintendent of the Ripon Unified School District.
Lindsay is the recently retired officer of the Ripon Police Department.
Orlando is a coach for the Ripon Chiefs youth football program. He’s listed as youth coordinator / businessman.
