Northern California attorneys to receive ballots

Attorneys in District 1 and 3 will receive election ballots this month to vote in the Board of Trustees election. Seven attorney candidates are vying for two seats.

Loren Kieve of San Francisco, Mark Ressa of San Ramon, Perry L. Segal of Redwood City, Sean M. SeLegue of San Francisco and Terry Wiley of San Leandro are running in District 1 (Alameda, Contra Costa, Del Norte, Humboldt, Lake, Marin, Mendocino, Napa, San Francisco, San Mateo, Solano and Sonoma counties).

John Appelbaum of Sacramento and Joanna Mendoza of Granite Bay are running in District 3 (Alpine, Amador, Butte, Calaveras, Colusa, El Dorado, Glenn, Lassen, Modoc, Mono, Nevada, Placer, Plumas, Sacramento, San Joaquin, Shasta, Sierra, Siskiyou, Sutter, Tehama, Trinity, Yolo and Yuba counties).

Ballots were mailed Dec. 31, and State Bar members have until Feb. 29 to cast their votes, either electronically or by mail. Votes will be counted in early March.

Candidates are scheduled to serve three-year terms in both districts. All the new trustees will take their oaths in October at the State Bar Annual Meeting, which lasts from Sept. 29 to Oct. 2, 2016.

The Board of Trustees meets approximately eight times a year to consider organizational, policy and regulatory matters. Visit the State Bar website for more information about the candidates, the election and the makeup of the board.
