Chapman announces retirement

Tuesday, June 17, 2014 —Veteran Lassen County District 2 Supervisor Jim Chapman announced last week he will not seek another term in office.

Chapman began his career as a supervisor in 1976 — 40 years ago. His only defeat at the polls as a supervisor came in his third election in 1984.

“I was four years out,” Chapman said, “but I came back and I’ve been here ever since. But in 2016 I won’t be filing as a candidate, and it seemed like this is a good opportunity to let everybody know. My decision is designed to give the next generation an opportunity to put a campaign together.”
