Olivehurst resident Seth Fuhrer has announced that he will run for the Yuba County Supervisor seat in the 3rd District in 2020. Seth owns Nickell Tax & Financial Planning in Marysville. He is a graduate of Lindhurst High School and UC Davis. He also has a Juris Doctorate from McGeorge School of Law. He is currently an Enrolled Agent with the IRS and a Real Estate Broker.
“My hope in running for Supervisor is that I can continue to build this community. That I can use my skills and expertise to bring good stewardship to county funds. That we can have accountability among our government officials. I believe we can do better!”
“I have a lot of hopes for Olivehurst”, Seth goes on to say. “I don't want us to be viewed as a second-class community. I want our infrastructure to be brought up to the level that other communities enjoy. I would like to see sidewalks and better drainage. Instead of being reactive, I would like us to be proactive in making our community safer. Opportunities shouldn't be squandered.”
In addition to infrastructure improvements, Seth will look to the hiring of more Community Service Officers to assist Yuba County Sheriff Deputies and campaign for better coordination between residents and Code Enforcement to keep our neighborhoods clean.
Seth is committed to reducing homelessness and providing opportunities for affordable housing in Yuba County. Fuhrer is a Past President of our local Habitat for Humanity Board. He has also served on the Advisory Board for the Salvation Army and worked with Joshua House on transitional housing. He was able to assist with the opening of 14 Forward as well as working with their neighbor, the Twin Cities Rescue Mission.
Seth Fuhrer is also focused on improving the lives of our youth as a past board member for Samaritan Village, which sponsors an orphanage in Tanzania, and participating in Marysville Kiwanis local Bringing Up GradeS (BUGS) program, where students in middle school who are targeted as at-risk are incentivized to improve academically. “Whether it’s feeding the homeless on Christmas morning at St. Andrews or teaching tax classes at Yuba College to train a new generation for the workforce, I try to constantly better my community.”
Seth Fuhrer and his wife Stephani have been married for 27 years and have 3 children. Their oldest, Stephan, works for them at Nickell Tax & Financial Planning. Their 2nd son, Samuel, is currently serving in the US Coast Guard, stationed in Alameda, CA and their daughter, Seraphim, is a student at U.C. Santa Cruz.
