Election 2016 Update

The race for Colusa County Supervisor, District 3, had been a close call with incumbent Mark Marshall receiving 506 votes, and his opponent Kent Boes receiving 560 votes. To receive the elected seat, a candidate must receive 50% of the votes cast plus one vote. With no additional provisional ballots to count for district 3, Kent Boes received the seat of Colusa County Supervisor for District 3.

“I’m thrilled by the results. The support I’ve received this past year has been nothing short of humbling. I have some big shoes to fill and a lot of learning to do, but I am ready to get to work for the citizens of Colusa County,” said Kent Boes in a statement to the Pioneer Review. “More importantly, I’m very proud of district 3 and the entire county’s turnout. In a district that typically has a very low voter turnout, over 1,100 folks showed up to vote and Colusa County had over 77% turnout which is absolutely fantastic.”
