One files, two pull papers in Menlo Park fire board race

Carolyn Clarke, who last year ran for a seat on the Menlo Park City Council, has pulled papers to run for the Menlo Park Fire Protection District board; current board president Stephen Nachtsheim said he is uncertain whether he will seek re-election.

With three seats open, incumbent Jack Nelson was the only person who had filed candidate papers as of the Almanac's press time on Monday; incumbent Rex Ianson has taken out papers.

Although she has yet to file her papers, Ms. Clarke has publicly announced her intention to run and has established a website as she launches her campaign. She is a member of the Menlo Park Housing Commission and serves on the city's Housing Element Steering Committee.

Mr. Nelson is serving out his first four-year term. He is the board's vice president. Mr. Ianson, a retired 36-year firefighter in the district, was elected to the board in 2005.
