Diaz announces he will seek re-election

Editor’s note: I received this email. I contributed $500 to Greg’s election the first time around, mainly because the race had become such a ‘mudpit.’ I won’t be contributing to his campaign or any others this time around, but I wish him the best of luck.

Gregory J. Diaz, incumbent Clerk-Recorder of Nevada County, announced today that he will seek reelection for a second full term next June.

“My campaign will have three prominent co-chairs: Robert Bergman of Nevada City; Maia Schneider of Truckee, and Linda Stevens of Grass Valley,” Diaz said in a letter to more than 400 people who supported his campaign four years ago.

“All have been mayors of their cities,” he noted. “I’m fortunate to have them volunteer to head my campaign, and for their continuing support.”

Diaz also told his supporters that he has “the same core committee that conducted my previous, very successful campaign. There’s a lot of difficult, complicated work required in complying with all election laws and I’m so lucky to have this capable group back in my corner — and already at work.”

In the letter, Diaz told his supporters: “My campaign theme will be simple: I will ask voters to trust me again to comply with all of the guiding principles that govern both the spirit and letter of our California election laws.

“And I will continue to conduct the operations of the office of Clerk-Recorder in the manner to which you have been accustomed since I was first entrusted to hold this position six years ago — and elected with a wide majority four years ago.”

The Diaz campaign again will make extensive use of Facebook and has a new Web site: TrustDiaz.com.

The county board of supervisors unanimously appointed Diaz to replace a series of inexperienced Clerk-Recorders in 2007. In 2010, Diaz won election for a full term in the post.
