Lisa Swarthout, former long time City Council member and two term Mayor for the City of Grass Valley has announced her run for District Three Supervisor in the 2022 election.  

Swarthout finished her term in December of 2020 after serving for 16 years on the Grass Valley City Council. She is the only woman to serve two terms as Mayor, from 2008-2010 and 2018-2020.  

Previous to being on the City Council Swarthout served 9 years on the Grass Valley Planning Commission.  “I closed my business in 2019 and finished my service to the City of Grass Valley in 2020 but being retired is not for me.  After 7 months I realized I really miss my time as a public servant and feel that moving on to the Board of Supervisors is just a natural progression in my service to the Community Swarthout said”. I know that the election is months away but I want to spend as much time as possible over the next 10 months meeting with people and really understanding the issues of District 3.
