Stanislaus County Supervisor Bill O'Brien will get a second term uncontested after no one filed papers to run against him in the 1st Supervisorial District by the Friday deadline of 5 p.m.
Two other supervisorial seats will have races for the June 3 primary, with former Stanislaus County Sheriff Les Weidman and farmer Vito Chiesa vying for the 2nd District seat being vacated by retiring Supervisor Tom Mayfield.
Because Mayfield is not running again, candidates have until Wednesday to file to run in his district.
Incumbent Jim DeMartini will face Newman Mayor John Fantazia for the 5th District supervisorial seat. Like O'Brien, DeMartini is completing his first term.
For California legislative seats, Assemblyman Tom Berryhill, R-Modesto, will have no primary opposition. Taylor White, a Democrat and Modesto Junior College Associated Students president, filed to run against him in the 25th Assembly District in the general election in November.
Berryhill's brother, Bill Berryhill, will have an uncontested primary for the 26th Assembly seat being vacated by Greg Aghazarian of Stockton. Democrat John Eisenhut, a farmer, has filed to run for that seat.
Assemblywoman Cathleen Galgiani, D-Livingston, will face Republican opposition in November from Jack Mobley, a Merced businessman, in the 18th Assembly District.
Rep. Dennis Cardoza, D-Merced, will get a fourth term in the House of Representatives, with no challengers filing to oppose him in the 17th Congressional District.
His district neighbor, Rep. Jerry McNerney, D-Pleasanton, will have no primary opposition in the 11th Congressional District. Stockton businessman and former Assemblyman Dean Andal has filed to run against McNerney as a Republican in November.
There were no challengers to any of the Stanislaus County Superior Court judges whose terms expire this year.
