After college and establishing a career, I returned to Nevada City about 7 years ago because Nevada City is where we wanted to raise our daughter.  These roots have formed my deep commitment to our community.  I want to make sure that Nevada City is the same wonderful place when our daughter is grown.”

 Dr. Ray has been active in neighborhood issues including Friends of Nevada City Elementary. 

 She added: “Nevada City is a special place to live and visit.  People are attracted to Nevada City because it has a healthy balance of neighborhoods, history, culture and art, non-profit organizations, and businesses that make it such a dynamic yet timeless Gold Country town. This is something that other communities envy and that we should protect.”

  Thre are 3 seats open on the Nevada city city council  and now 3 candidates  Jennifer Ray, Terry Andersen and incumbent Robert Bergman who is running for re-election.
