Pareira joins early bids for supervisor seat

By Jonathan Whitaker
August 27, 2015

A longtime dairyman, school board member, community volunteer and advocate for agriculture is among the standout candidates emerging in the early race to fill an open District 4 County Supervisor seat in the 2016 election.
In an interview with the County Times to announce his campaign, Lloyd Pareira, Jr. highlighted an honest and professional approach to problem-solving, and a sincere desire to advocate for district residents and the county as a whole.
"A lot of times things happen in the course of a process, and in that, oftentimes, you don’t get change for the better,” the 52-year-old Pareira said about government. “You have to get involved, and work on making a difference. And that’s what I do.”
There’s no doubt many people across the county know Pareira, but interestingly, it might be for a variety of respectable reasons — from his family’s long history in the county, to his ag work and community events, to his service to school children … or maybe because of those curious, highly-visible exotic animals on his ranch near Highway 59.
