Independent small businessman Steve Colangelo, a candidate for San Joaquin County Supervisor, is announcing the endorsement of Dean Andal, former San Joaquin County Board of Education Member, State Assemblyman, and Chair of the California State Board of Equalization.

“Steve Colangelo has the integrity, independent approach to problem-solving, and a laser focus on creating abundant living wage jobs for San Joaquin County residents that we need on the Board of Supervisors,” Andal noted.

“I’ve known Steve Colangelo for years, and he is a steadfast advocate for taxpayers and the people of San Joaquin County. Colangelo is who we need to tackle the tough problems of homelessness, safer neighborhoods and streets, and making San Joaquin County an affordable place to live and work.”

Steve Colangelo is an independent small business owner who has raised his family and built successful small businesses in San Joaquin County. He was a top-two finisher in the June Election and now moves forward to the November General Election for District 4 County Supervisor.
