1999 election filing season open

Want to be a decision-maker for the South Tahoe Public Utility District? How about for the school district? The community college?

Here’s your chance.

The 1999 election season is about to begin in El Dorado County. Filing starts July 12 and continues through Aug. 6.

If the incumbent does not file within that time period, it will extend another five days. Anyone but the incumbent can file during the extension.

The election is Nov. 2.

Two seats on the STPUD Board of Directors are up for grabs. They are four-year terms, and both incumbents have indicated their intentions to run. Duane Wallace, seat No. 4, has served since being elected in 1991. Mary Lou Mosbacher, seat No. 3, has served since being appointed in 1990.

Filers will have to specify which seat they want to run for.

Three seats for the Lake Tahoe Unified School District board are available: those currently held by David Kurtzman, Linda Mendizabal and Eric Schafer. Mendizabal, who has served since being appointed in 1989, said she does not plan to run again. Kurtzman, who has served since 1983, and Schafer, who has served since 1987, could not be reached Thursday.

In that election, the top three vote-getters will fill the seats.

Other El Dorado County positions up for election include:

– Lake Tahoe Community College board, two seats;

– Meeks Bay Fire Protection District, three seats;

– Tahoe Paradise Resort Improvement District, two seats;

– Fallen Leaf Lake Community Services District, three seats.
