Weinrich makes ballot as commissioner candidate

There will be a contested race for Yuma County Commissioner District 1 in the November election.
Adam Gates had already made the ballot by beating Jamie Unger in the Republican Primary Election, late last month.
Now came word late last week that Dwain Weinrich has successfully petitioned his way onto the ballot as an unaffiliated candidate.
Weinrich had announced this past spring his intention to do so.
His nomination by petition required having at least 69 valid signatures. He turned in is petition to the Yuma County Clerk & Recorder’s Office on June 15, containing 100 signatures.
The Clerk & Recorder released a “statement of sufficiency” late last week, that 90 of the 100 signatures were accepted, qualifying Weinrich for placement on the 2022 General Election ballot.
A record of all accepted and rejected signatures is on file at the Clerk & Recorder’s office, and will be maintained as a public record.
“I’m very excited to be able to move forward as an official candidate for the Yuma County District 1 seat,” Weinrich said in an email. “I believe my past leadership experiences line up well with the role of representing the people of Yuma County as their future commissioner. I look forward to meeting many new residents over the next several months.”
