District 2 Colusa County Supervisor Tom Indrieri filed candidacy papers on March 5, just days before the March 9 filing deadline.
He is running for re-election for his third term against two opponents; Tom Reische who also filed on March 5, and Curtis Boewer who filed earlier.
Reische is a four-time Colusa mayor. Boewer is the former Colusa County Behavioral Health director.
Indrieri said he is excited about making a bid for re-election. He’s also looking forward to running a campaign again.
Indrieri said admittedly it was easier to run unopposed as he did in his second-term bid for the seat, but he also feels a choice is good for the voters.
“A race makes a difference to the people,” he said. “I think we need that. – The voters deserve that.”
Indrieri was first elected to the Board of Supervisors in 2005. He said that after serving his constituency for nearly eight years that he his proud of what he has been a part of accomplishing in Colusa County.
A businessman himself; he and his family owns Tommy’s Market Street Grill in Colusa,
Indrieri said he prides himself in being supportive of not only the business community, but of the rural areas of the county and the things that are important in those communities.
Indrieri was born in Colusa County, and is a life-long resident. He and his wife Ashley have three beautiful children; Quinten, Ava and Addison.
“Colusa County and its government are very important to me,” said Indrieri. “I’m running for a third term in hopes of continuing to be a part of the political process that has helped ensure the quality of life we all know and love here in Colusa County,” he added.
Two other incumbents; Mark Marshall (District 3) and Gary Evans (District 1) have also filed.
