After discovering inconsistencies on the election information sent with the original ballots, the CRC and CDFA were prepared to conduct a re-ballot of District 1. This information was communicated to the industry several weeks ago.
Upon learning of this proposed action, Tracy Schohr, one of the candidates in District 1, suggested that the results of the election stand for the district, saving industry funds, time and confusion during harvest. The second candidate, Josh Sheppard, agreed. With this information, the CDFA has agreed to certify the results of the election in the district.
We greatly appreciate the leadership and selflessness from both candidates.
Following are the election results for District 1.
|District 1||Josh Sheppard – Member|
|Tracy Schohr – Alternate|
