Renee Price Announces Re-Election Bid for Orange County Board of Commissioners
Renee Price has announced that she will seek re-election to her District 2 seat on the Orange County Board of Commissioners.
Price was first elected to her seat in the 2012 election. In a release, she says, “We have a long journey to travel in addressing the spectrum of needs and values of our diverse community. Orange County is evolving, and we must work together to maintain and enhance our quality of living. Month after month, you inspire me to proceed along this journey as commissioner.”
Price says there are several areas that she can point to where progress has been made over the last three years.
“We have witnessed the opening of the Rogers Road Community Center, and expansion of bus service into Cedar Grove, and the development of Morinaga offering jobs to local people,” she says.
But she says there is more work to be done.
“I will pursue options to boost our local economy, reduce unemployment, assure safe and decent housing, improve accessibility, encourage out young people, assist our senior citizens, protect our natural resources, and promote energy conservation and efficiency.”
Price is the only candidate to announce a bid for District 2 seat.
Mark Marcoplos and Matt Hughes have announced their candidacy for the at-large seat on the board that will be vacated by Bernadette Pelissier, who announced she would not seek a third term on the board.
Penny Rich has announced she will seek re-election to her District 1 seat.
Mark Dorosin’s District 1 seat is also up for re-election, but he has not made public his plans to run.
Filing for the 2016 elections begins at noon on December 1 and runs through December 21. The primary will be held on March 15.
