Final election night results indicate that incumbent Siskiyou County supervisors Ed Valenzuela and Brandon Criss will retain their seats, while Yreka Chamber President Nancy Ogren beat out challenger Catherine Gilbert to represent District 4.

In the race for three seats on the Hornbrook Community Services District, Elaine Mellon collected a landslide of the votes, with 50 ballots cast. Raegan Duncan is currently in second with nine votes. Matthew Stone has five votes; Roger Gifford has four and Randy Scheimer has three.

On his campaign Facebook page, candidate Paul Beck thanked those who supported him.

“But alas, to quote Led Zepplin, ‘The song remains the same!’ Four more years of status quo,” Beck posted early Wednesday morning.

Beck garnered 691 votes in early election results compared to Valenzuela’s 1,826. Valenzuela is looking to serve a fourth term representing the Mount Shasta and Dunsmuir communities.

Angelina Cook, who challenged Criss for the District 1 seat to represent the expansive eastern half of the county, finished Tuesday evening with 24.71% of the vote.

In District 4, Catherine Gilbert, who had been actively campaigning by hosting city cleanups and meet and greets, collected 735 votes on Tuesday for 38.66 percent of the vote.

If she’s the winner, Ogren would take Lisa Nixon’s seat on the board of supervisors in January 2021.
