Seats, taxes set for voters

Two ballot measures and eight board seats in four special districts will be decided tomorrow night in a mail-ballot election.

Voters must return their own ballots to the government center by 8 p.m. tomorrow at the Calaveras County Government Center, 891 Mountain Ranch Road, San Andreas.

Under state law, only a voter's authorized, live-in caregiver can bring in a ballot in place of the actual voter.

The following seats will be decided in this election:

• San Andreas Fire Protection District, two director seats. Candidates are incumbents Alvin "Al" Ohlau, David "Mick" Serra and district Fire Capt. Larry Buswell. All three live in San Andreas.

• Valley Springs Public Utility District, three director seats. Candidates are incumbent Timothy "Tim" Belcher; appointed incumbent Jack Silveira; Jeffrey Duke, a machine operator; and Jim Peach, a heavy equipment operator. All four live in Valley Springs.

• Calaveras County Water District, Division 5 seat. Candidates are incumbent Jeff Davidson and Ivor Powell, a retired printer. Both live in Valley Springs.

• Wallace Community Services District, two director seats. Candidates are William George, a managing general partner; Patrick Gotto, an electrician/technician; Christopher "Chris" Madill, a project manager; and Bruce Thomas, an electrical design engineer. All four live in Wallace.

Also on the ballot:

• Measure A, Jenny Lind Fire Protection District special tax. The district wants to establish a special tax of $25 for undeveloped land and $75 for developed land for a 10-year period. Tax revenue would help pay for equipment and hire firefighters.

• Measure B, Circle XX Community Services District special tax. The district wants to establish an annual $300 special tax per parcel of real property to help pay for district road improvements.
