Voter Turnout in Nevada County was 49-point 8 percent for this General election. County voters say “yes” to sales tax measures for Grass Valley and Nevada City; “no” to a property tax assessment for Pleasant Ridge School District residents; and on the Grass Valley City Council, Howard Levine joins incumbents Jan Arbuckle and Lisa Swarthout in running the city.
Howard Levine who wins a seat on city council after twelve years running the Grass Valley Downtown Association says he wants to recapture leaking sales tax revenue.
Lisa Swarthout who returns to the city council for a third term says she wants to complete unfinished business.
And Jan Arbuckle, currently mayor of Grass Valley, received the most votes and appreciates the community support for a job well done.
Jim Firth came in in fouth place behind Arbuckle, Swarthout and Levine.
