The extended filing period for the Nov. 3 Consolidated District Election closed uneventfully on Wednesday evening, with just one new competitor filing in a local race.
Carlos Jimenez, a State Agriculture Aide, will join the six previously announced candidates in the Keyes Union School District Governing Board Member race. Jimenez filed on Monday, taking advantage of state law that extends filing deadlines in races where incumbents choose not to seek reelection.
The initial deadline for candidate filing passed on Aug. 7 with 34 candidates set to compete for 21 seats. Incumbent candidates did not file for reelection in five local contests, which extended the deadline for new non-incumbent candidates to Wednesday.
The four other area races with extended candidate filing periods saw no new filings.
An anticipated race to elect new Denair Municipal Advisory Council members did not qualify for the ballot. Despite the existence of three available seats, no one filed to run.
The Stanislaus County Board of Supervisors has the authority to fill vacancies on the Denair MAC through appointment.
