KINGMAN — Two more people have submitted their applications Tuesday for county supervisor from District 5.
Frank Jacobs, of Bullhead City, and Ron Gould, of Yucca, have filed resumes and letters of interest to fill the vacancy created by the resignation of Steve Moss, Clerk of the Board Ginny Anderson said.
Jacobs, who moved from California, said he is living in a vacation home in Bullhead City and looking to move to a permanent residence in the Mohave Valley area. An applicant must reside in the district when they are appointed by the board on Sept. 5.
Gould is a former state senator, serving the maximum four consecutive two-year terms before losing to Rep. Paul Gosar in the 2012 Republican primary for U.S. House of Representatives.
Jacob and Gould join Sue Donahue of Lake Havasu City, Richard Tempelman of Fort Mohave, Robert Wylie of Lake Havasu City and Lois Wakimoto of Mohave Valley in submitting letters of interest to replace Moss, who was first elected in 2012.
The candidate for supervisor must be at least 18 years old, a Republican, speak the English language and live within District 5, which encompasses Mohave Valley, Fort Mohave, Golden Shores and the northern part of Lake Havasu City. State law requires that vacancies in elected offiices be filled by someone of the same political party as the previous officeholder.
Candidates have until 5 p.m. Aug. 18 to submit letters of interest and a resume to the clerk of the board. The board of supervisors will hold a special meeting Aug. 28 to interview the applicants. Each supervisor can recommend up to five applicants.
The remaining four supervisors will select a new District 5 supervisor at their Sept. 5 meeting. A primary election for Moss’ seat on the board will be held Aug. 28, 2018, and the general election will be held Nov. 6, 2018. All five supervisors will be up for election in 2020.
