Two newcomers are joining the Madera County Board of Supervisors following the November elections.
Jordan Wamhoff, a Fresno police officer, garnered nearly 58% of the vote while winning the District 1 run-off against Andy Wheeler, who is a Golden Valley Unified School District trustee.
The seat became open in June when incumbent Brett Frazier won his race to become Madera County’s assessor.
The redrawn district cover the northern portion of the city of Madera, Parkwood, Madera and Bonadelle Ranchos, and the fast-growing Riverstone neighborhood.
Also joining the board is Bobby Macauley. He edged Mark S. Reed in the District 5 run-off by securing 50.52% of the vote.
That seat opened up when incumbent Tom Wheeler, who had represented the county’s mountain communities since 2007, decided not to seek re-election. Macauley is Wheeler’s chief of staff.
Rogers Avoided Run-off With Primary Victory
Back in June, District 2 incumbent David Rogers avoided a run-off by capturing 53% of the vote.
The county’s two other supervisors are Leticia Gonzalez (District 4) and Robert L Poythress (District 3).
