Ripon Vice Mayor Chuck Winn becomes the third person to announce his candidacy for San Joaquin County’s 4th Supervisorial District seat being vacated next year by Ken Vogel due to term limits.
Born and raised in Oildale, north of Bakersfield, Winn served 37 years with the California Highway Patrol. He was once commander of the Modesto CHP office.
Winn is the second Ripon resident to announce his candidacy for Vogel’s seat. Ripon was added to the Fourth District, which includes the Lodi area, when redistricting of the five supervisor boundaries took place in 2011.
Lodi’s Russ Munson, owner of Wine & Roses, and retired county Chief Administrative Officer Manuel Lopez of Ripon have announced their candidacy for Vogel’s seat.
