When the city of Manteca switched to district elections in 2022, Councilmember Jose Nuño intended to bow out rather than seek another term. But instead he ended up extending his stay on the council when he was appointed to serve the remaining two years of Gary Singh’s at-large term after Singh won his bid for the mayor’s seat. Nuño’s wife grew up in Manteca and together they are raising their two sons in the city. He is a prior member of two Manteca advisory bodies: the Planning Commission and the General Plan Advisory Committee.
