Hodge to run for Grass Valley City Council

I received this press release. I’m posting it from my phone:

Grass Valley resident Hilary Hodge, who just completed a race for Nevada County Supervisor and missed her election bid by less than 1 point, has announced her intention to run for Grass Valley City Council. Hodge has completed and submitted the appropriate paperwork to form a campaign committee and enter the race.

“My resolve to serve and to work for the people of Grass Valley has never been stronger,” says Hilary Hodge. “My bid for Nevada County District 3 Supervisor gave me the opportunity to talk with our community in a deep and meaningful way. The people of Grass Valley are ready for innovative ideas and new opportunities and I am ready to lead for the people of Grass Valley.”

Hodge, a first-time candidate in the Supervisor’s race narrowly missed beating long-time incumbent Dan Miller.  “It’s clear to me that there is momentum for new leadership at all levels of government,” notes Hodge. “I’m ready to take what I learned on the campaign trail for Supervisor and move forward for my city.”  The City of Grass Valley lies entirely within the boundary of Supervisory District 3.

Hodge will still need to pull the appropriate paperwork from the City of Grass Valley and submit valid signatures by the filing date.
