FAIRFIELD — It’s a three-way race for the 4th District county supervisor seat held by Supervisor John Vasquez.
Gerald Clift said on Wednesday that he is a candidate. Vasquez and Dixon City Councilman Thom Bogue have also said they will run.
Clift, 26, said he lives in the rural county and helps on the family farm that raises chickens. He is a coordinator for the Rescue California Educational Foundation, which advocates having smaller districts for the state Legislature so each legislator represents a smaller number of people. He graduated from Sacramento State University and from Western State College of Law.
He said he is joining the 4th District supervisors race because he is disappointed by a lot of decisions the Solano County Board of Supervisors has made. He mentioned the county’s aborted attempt to create a 311 call center for county government, the raising of real estate recording fees and the county spending money in an attempt to redevelop the county fairgrounds in Vallejo.
He’s also concerned about the multimillion-dollar deficits the county budget has run, Clift said. The county has used savings to cover revenue shortfalls during the economic downturn.
Clift has not run for other elected offices. People can go to http://gclift.com to see his website.
