Here’s a recap of the other local races:

Ripon Unified

Joe Franscella and Jason Winter area vying for Trustee Area 1 seat. Trustee Chad Huskey didn’t refile for another term.

Board President Christopher ‘Kit’ Oase is again seeking reelection for his Trustee Area 3 post. This time he’ll be challenge by Tiffany Treece and Timothy O Matthews.

Incumbent Vince Hobbs in Trustee Area 2 is unopposed and is looking at being appointed to another four years on the school board.

Ripon City Council

Former Ripon Chamber of Commerce CEO / President Tamra Spade – she currently holds the same position for the Tracy Chamber of Commerce – will be challenging Mayor Dean Uecker and Vice Mayor Michael Restuccia in the Ripon City Council race.

This is for the full four-year term.

Gary Barton, who was a provisional appointment back in December, was unchallenged for the two-year short term.

He’ll be appointed to finish out the term formerly held by Tim Wheeler, who stepped down at the midway point after being elected in 2020 – he and his family moved to Montana
