My Top 3 Priorities

  • Sound Fiscal Management
  • Open Communications, Transparency, and Community Involvement
  • A Healthy Watershed from Top to Bottom



Chico State University Bachelor of Arts Degree and Secondary Teaching Credential, Music, History, Political Science (1988)


I’m Bruce Herring, candidate for the NID Board of Directors in Division 2. I’m 65 and have lived in Nevada County with my family since 1988.  I retired in 2014 from Bitney Prep High School where I served as Teacher, Dean of Academics, and over four years as Director. Over the years I taught US History, World History, Government, Economics, Chess, and Music.  Previously I was half owner of Wolf Creek Wilderness, the local kayak shop. I also served briefly on the SYRCL Board in the late nineties.


Prior to that I squeezed in four years as the Materials and Purchasing Manager for a manufacturing firm in Phoenix. I’ve also worked on a shipping/receiving dock, as a framing carpenter, and a whitewater rafting guide in California, Oregon, Alaska, and Grand Canyon. I grew up down in Orange County and earned a B.A. and Teaching Credential from Chico State University.


Sally (who is a resident artist at ASIF studios) and I have been married 36 years, and love to hang out with our two adult daughters and a 16 year old mangy cat.


“For over a dozen years I made my living on rivers.  In doing so one learns a great deal about the operations and misconceptions of dams and reservoirs.  I have closely followed water issues in the Western U.S. ever since.  I’m a worker.  You can count on me to do my homework, listen to your concerns, then roll up my sleeves and make it happen.”
