OROVILLE — Steve Rocchi and Kent Fowler appear to have held their seats on the Feather River Recreation and Parks District board of directors against challenger Sonny Brandt.
As of 9:50 p.m. Tuesday, with 92 percent of precincts reporting, Rocchi had 43 percent of counted votes. Fowler had 30 percent of the vote. Brandt trailed with 27 percent.
All three candidates have served on the board before in some capacity.
Kent Fowler and Steve Rocchi are currently completing terms on the board, and Sonny Brandt was a board member from 1996-2004. Rocchi was appointed by the board earlier this year to take over the position left vacant when Don Noble resigned. Fowler is at the end of his first four-year term.
Fowler, the owner of Fowler Pest Services, said he was running because the work he campaigned on, such as bringing the district parks up to a higher standard and improving public safety and maintenance of the parks, is not yet finished. Fowler started a program last year called Park Watch. Volunteers can join to help patrol and clean up Riverbend Park, currently under reconstruction because it flooded during the Oroville Dam crisis in February 2017.
Rocchi, a local optometrist, has said he supports the idea of an aquatic center for the district if it wouldn’t be a significant financial risk. Rocchi also thought trail expansions along the Feather River would be a good use of the Supplemental Benefits Fund largesse from the Oroville Dam project.
Brandt, who is retired, said his family had benefited greatly from the park district and that he wanted to give back since he had more free time in the retirement phase in his life. He also thought trail expansions along the Feather River would be a good idea to pursue.h2 data-curated-ids="" data-relation-type="automatic-primary-tag"">
