Notable Laytonville local Susy Barsotti announced her bid for Third District supervisor this weekend, joining former Third District supervisor John Pinches, Willits community activist Cyndee Logan, and Willits school teacher John Haschak as candidates in the north county race. Barsotti is a resident of the Hog Farm at Black Oak Ranch and is known locally for her work producing events such as the annual Kate Wolf Festival, Earthdance, and the Pignic. She announced her candidacy on Facebook saying, “I’m throwing my tiara into the ring for Mendocino County 3rd District Supervisor. What the heck.”

So far four candidates are competing for the seat currently occupied by Supervisor Georgeanne Croskey in the Third District. Croskey was appointed by Governor Jerry Brown in May 2016 to replace Tom Woodhouse after his resignation, and she will be moving out of the county after the election. At least three candidates are currently running for the Fifth District, including Albion resident Chris Skyhawk, Albion Fire Chief Ted Williams, and Alan Rodier.
