An election tidbit about the Oakley Municipal Election – November 8, 2022. Adam Gerhart, a resident of District 4 (Summer Lake), has pulled papers to enable him to campaign for election as a write-in candidate.
I was informed that Jacob Shaw, wife of Shannon Shaw, also a City Council candidate from District 4, has filed for election for the Diablo Water District Board of Directors. No other candidate filed for election in his district, so Mr. Shaw will move on to the Water District Board of Directors dais. I am curious how the FPPC and Contra Costa District Attorney’s office will respond. Conflict of interest laws prevents one person from sitting on two different election positions simultaneously. I do not know how it will go with a married couple living in the same household regarding conflict-of-interest regulations.
There are two Rotary Club of Oakley members on the managing team of the Diablo Water District. Scott Pastor, who is a Director on the Board of Directors, and Dan Muelrath, Director of the water district.
