Nominations for prospective Moraga-Orinda Fire District board members are being accepted through Aug. 10. Elections will be held in November for three districts including Division 3, which covers southwest Orinda, western Moraga and Canyon.
That seat was left vacant earlier this year by Dick Olsen, who stepped down in February. If elected, the candidate would finish out the remaining two years of the four-year term.
Seats are also up for Division 5, which covers north Orinda and was vacated earlier this year by Brook Mancinelli, and Division 2 covering north Moraga and Rheem Valley. That seat is currently occupied by board President Fred Weil.
The candidate filing period runs through Aug. 10. For information, contact the Contra Costa County Elections Division at 925-335-7800 or www.cocovote.us.
