Williams city councilwoman vying for supervisor seat
Williams City Councilwoman Angela Plachek-Fulcher is the second candidate to officially file election papers for the June primary.
Seeking the District 3 supervisorial seat held by three-term incumbent Mark Marshall, Fulcher has said she will bring fresh ideas to the Colusa County Board of Supervisors.
"During my time on the City Council, I've learned a lot about local government, and I think it's important when the leaders are making decisions that are taking into account how it affects the county as well," Fulcher said when she first took out papers.
"I think after 12 years, (Marshall) might be a little complacent. I think I have some fresh ideas, and fresh ideas are a good thing," the former mayor added. "I just want people to know I've been here a little over 30 years and I have a vested interest in the community and I want to continue moving forward and making progress."
Fulcher filed last week, and as of Tuesday morning, joined District 2 hopeful Curtis Boewer as the only candidates to have filed papers for what could be three supervisorial races.
Boewer is challenging incumbent Tom Indrieri, who has taken out papers, but has not filed them.
Marshall and District 1 Supervisor Gary Evans also have indicated they will be seeking re-election, took out papers, but have not filed.
In addition to Fulcher, Marshall also could face Rick Gobel in the election. Kenneth Cohen has taken out papers for Evans chair on the board.
Neither Gobel or Cohen have filed.
Superior Court Judge Elizabeth "Betsy" Olivera also has filed her paperwork. She was appointed to the bench in December, becoming the first woman judge in Colusa County history.
