Nate Beason announces he will seek re-election in 2012

Supervisor Nate Beason this morning is announcing he will seek re-election as First District Supervisor in 2012.  Beason says his tenure as a Supervisor has given him an understanding of the role and priorities of county government, and He will continue to provide the leadership necessary to make the tough decisions required to support those priorities.

Nevada County is fortunate to be one of a handful of counties that have remained solvent with balanced budgets, streamlined government, and healthy reserve funds.  Beason says “For the past three years California has been a tough place to do business for local governments as well as the private sector. It’s been a constant effort to move the legislature in the counties direction. He personally has made more than 100 trips to Sacramento in this effort.

“A lot of the bills that get passed into law contain, really over-reaching regulations that particularly affect rural counties and we just spend a lot of time battling that and we’re successful from time to time even though that bureaucracy  is hard to deal with and we keep at it. We’ve had some successes and we’ll just keep it up.”

Beason says his tenure as a Supervisor has given him an understanding of the role and priorities of county government, and He will continue to provide the leadership necessary to make the tough decisions required to support those priorities.  

Beason ran unopposed in 2008.  Nevada County Attorney Sue McGuire announced last week that she is also seeking the office of First District Supervisor for Nevada County.
