Nevada City, Calif. February 13, 2018 – Long time Nevada County resident Mary Anne Davis has announced her candidacy today for Nevada County Clerk-Recorder/Registrar.

“As the current President of the 49er Breakfast Rotary Club of Nevada City, I know the importance of service in our community. This experience has inspired me to focus my leadership, project/event management skills and experience toward something with a broader reach, and I believe I can serve our community best as the next County Clerk-Recorder/Registrar,” says Davis. “This position protects the integrity of the things of most value to us – our recorded documents that chronicle our lives and our most precious asset, our votes.”

Mary Anne Davis has been The Union’s Event Manager/Nonprofit Manager since 2011, where she produces and manages The Union’s Home, Garden & Lifestyle Show, Chocolate Infusion, 100% Design, and more. She is also co-producer of The Union’s “Golden Stories of Our Past” documentary film series on the rich history of the area. Davis served on The Union’s Editorial Board for three years, but has resigned upon her decision to enter the race.

Davis’ career spans 30 years locally in marketing, project management, event management, public relations and nonprofit service. In accordance with the requirements to serve as Clerk-Recorder/Registrar, she is qualified. “I believe all of my career successes have led me to this point,” says Davis. She continued, “Many of my skills will transfer to this elected position, and I can quickly learn industry-specific procedures.”

“I will bring a passion to serve, and be visible and accessible to the citizens of our great community. It will be my goal to ensure everyone who sets foot in the County office will feel welcomed and well-served — whether filing or requesting legal documents, registering to vote, or filing papers to run for elected office,” Mary Anne promises.

Mary Anne and her husband Scott have raised two sons in Grass Valley and Nevada City, and have made this their home for 30 years.
