Tuesday, June 3, 2014 — Today’s election may be one of the most significant elections in recent memory in terms of the choices and change it may bring to the ranks of our elected officials.
Kenneth Bunch, Lassen County’s veteran assessor, announced his retirement. Daniel F. Schlueter, who runs unopposed, will be elected to that office.
Karen Fouch, Lassen County’s veteran auditor, also announced her retirement. Voters will choose between Diana Wemple, the county’s assistant auditor, and Jim Chapman, the county’s district 2 supervisor. One of them will be elected.
