John Plasse Will Not Seek Reelection to Amador Board of Supervisors

I would have preferred to do this in a way that wouldn't create so much stir, but I suppose there is no way to accomplish that. I confided my leanings to a few people and given the leaks, it appears I should have chosen more wisely.

It is true that I have decided not to run for another term. A host of personal responsibilities, as well as a growing distaste for politics, have brought me to this decision. It is a decision that I do not take lightly, but feel should be made early enough in the election cycle to allow for interested candidates to participate. The selection of our representatives should not be a coronation by those with political influence, but instead a thoughtful and informed decision on the part of the electorate.

I am very thankful for all the support over the last seven years and will assure you that I will serve out the remainder of my term with dedication and dignity. It has been my pleasure to have served the citizens of Amador and I will look back over my time here with at least a little sense of accomplishment albeit far less tangible than I prefer."


- John Plasse, Amador County Supervisor, Dist. 1
