Six running for seats in Calaveras County

By Mike Morris, The Union Democrat

Six candidates will vie for two Calaveras County Superior Court judgeships, while seven candidates are running for two seats on the county Board of Supervisors in June's primary election.

The three candidates for the seat of retiring Judge John Martin are Calaveras County Superior Court Commissioner Grant Barrett, Calaveras County Deputy District Attorney Dana Pfeil and San Andreas attorney Ken Foley.

For the second judge seat, recently-appointed Judge Hugh Swift is running against Murphys attorney John Trifilo and San Joaquin County prosecutor Tim Healy.

On the Calaveras County Board of Supervisors, three candidates are running to represent District 3. The district spans the Highway 4 corridor from the Murphys area northeast to the Alpine County line.

Incumbent Merita Callaway, of Forest Meadows, is vying for her sixth term. She is kicking off her reelection campaign with events from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at Milliaire Winery in Murphys and 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. March 27 at the Hub in Arnold.

Her challengers are Arnold resident Michael Oliveira, a part-time Calaveras County Sheriff's deputy who owns a consulting business in accident reconstruction, and Hathaway Pines resident Mike Borean, a San Mateo Fire Department battalion chief who plans to retire this fall.

Borean is holding a campaign event from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday at Frog's Tooth Vineyards tasting room in Murphys, while Oliveira has an event scheduled at Bristol's Ranch House Cafe in Arnold from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday.
