MASON CITY – Doug Nelson, a rural Clear Lake farmer, filed papers for candidate nomination with the Cerro Gordo County Auditor’s office on Friday, March 21. He is seeking the Democratic party’s nomination for county supervisor to be determined by the Primary Election on June 3rd.
Nelson is the second Democrat to file papers and is the only announced candidate who lives in rural Cerro Gordo county.
“I filed my nomination petitions today with the County Auditor,” Mr. Nelson said Friday. “Had a great time because Supervisor Bob Amosson happened to be at hand to make it very special. He and I have had a good time of it over the years and as I said today, I never ran against Bob, just for the job. We always kept our sense of humor and I’m glad we’ve been able to stay friends.”
The deadline for filing is Wednesday, March 26th.
