Lou Ceci ad for Nevada City Council

Lou Ceci has announced he is running for Nevada City Council in the June 7 ballot.

Announcing his candidacy, he said, “I have the time, resources and experience to make a positive difference for our great city. I want to work to ensure a healthy municipal budget that delivers quality municipal services to our residents and businesses. Improving fire safety and an adequate water supply take first place. I see great opportunities to preserve our past as we embrace the future.

This is active in the Nevada City community as a volunteer with her church’s Feed the Hungry program and as a cast member in Sierra Stages productions. He is an active member of his Piety Hill neighborhood, where he lives in the 1934 Craftsman bungalow he has restored.



He moved to Nevada City from Mountain View after his career in high school and college public education, and designing software for various companies, including T-Mobile and Microsoft. He now owns a small publishing house in Nevada City.

He holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees in speech education from Southern Illinois University, Carbondale; a master’s degree in computer science from the University of Colorado, Boulder; and a doctorate. in Performance Studies from Northwestern University, Evanston, Illinois.



This views fire safety and an assured water supply for Nevada City as critical and immediate issues facing the city. He said: “Those are two huge unmet needs in our city. The city has made very little progress on these issues over the past four years, despite council’s efforts. I will work hard to have the city council develop a comprehensive city fire prevention plan and hire a grant writer to ensure it is generously funded.

“It is also imperative that we ensure an adequate water supply for our city for today’s needs and those of tomorrow. We need a serious, concerted plan to conserve water, rehabilitate the city’s wells, and work to cement our contracts with NID and moderate our water rates.

On the economy, he strongly supports keeping the yard downtown. “The courts are a huge economic engine for our downtown, where employees of the court and associated county offices work daily, and where jurors can easily access restaurants and other services. The courts keep our downtown real.

“Our unique little town offers residents an unparalleled quality of life. I will protect our residential neighborhoods and maintain, if not expand, our city-owned green spaces. It’s really who we are.

This is a candidate for one of two positions to be filled in the June elections.
