Three file to run for CSD board
Three people will run for two seats on the Rancho Murieta Community Services District board of directors this fall. The county Voter Registration and Elections office confirmed that incumbents Betty Ferraro and Steve Mobley and former Rancho Murieta Association director Mike Martel had filed by Friday's 5 p.m. deadline to run in the November election.
The CSD provides security, water, sewer, drainage and garbage collection services for Rancho Murieta. Elections to the five-member board are held every two years. CSD directors serve four-year terms.
Mobley and Ferraro were first elected to the board in 2008, when they unseated then-incumbents Wayne Kuntz and Jerry Pasek. They currently serve with Directors Bobbi Belton, Dick Taylor and Pasek, who were appointed to the board in 2010 as the only candidates for three available positions.
Ferraro is a retired educator who serves on the CSD Communication and Technology, Improvements and Security committees. She also represents the CSD on the Parks Committee.
Mobley, the top vote-getter in 2008, retired from the Sacramento Sheriff’s Department as a patrol sergeant and currently serves on the CSD Security Committee.
Martel was first elected to the RMA board in 2003. He left the board in 2009 after serving two three-year terms, the maximum number of consecutive terms RMA allows. Martel worked for the State Department of Corrections until his recent reirement. He is one of the founders of Summerfest, the volunteer organization that holds the annual carnival at Stonehouse Park.
