Modesto Councilman Tony Madrigal has pulled nominating papers to run for the Stanislaus County Board of Supervisors in the June 5 primary.
This comes as Madrigal was re-elected in November to his second and final four-year term on the council. He represents downtown and south and west Modesto.
Madrigal did not respond to a text message and phone call seeking comment.
He has earned a reputation as a tireless promoter of his district and Modesto and for his community involvement. But his critics have accused him of being a tireless self-promoter who is quick to take credit for the work of others.
Never miss a local story.
He would be running for the Board of Supervisors' District 3 seat, which includes the west side of Modesto and Salida.
District 3 Supervisor Terry Withrow is running for his third term and is being challenged by Katherine Borges, a county planning commissioner and Salida advocate.
The county election office confirmed Madrigal pulled papers Thursday afternoon and has until 5 p.m. Friday to turn in his completed paperwork to qualify for the ballot.
Withrow and Borges have qualified, according to the election office.
The top two vote-getters will advance to a runoff in November if a single candidate does not capture more than 50 percent of the vote.
