Andrea Macon announces candidacy for Amador County District 5 Supervisor

Pledges to 'respect our past while building our future'.

Rural Pine Grove resident Andrea Macon today officially declared her candidacy for the District 5 seat on the Amador County Board of Supervisors.

“I'm humbled and honored to announce my candidacy for a seat on our board of supervisors,” Macon stated. “I'm ready to put my experience and skills to work for Amador County residents. As past president of the Lockwood Fire Protection District board and a longtime upcountry resident, I understand the public safety issues we need to address. Since I raised my two sons in Amador County, I know we need to build a better future so our kids can succeed here at home. And with 30 years of business experience, including running my own small business, I appreciate the challenges that face local business owners. I believe in working cooperatively with everyone in our community.”

District 5 Candidate Andrea Macon
Macon, age 48, grew up on a cattle ranch in Alfalfa, Oregon, and has lived in Amador County for 22 years. She is a former owner-operator of a Mailboxes, Etc. franchise. She works as a technology consultant and marketing director, and is a long-time community volunteer. She is also a U.C. Master (food) Preserver, enjoys outdoor recreation, and is the author of a children's book.

“I want to preserve and protect the rural life we enjoy in Amador County,” Macon declared. “We can
do this while we strengthen our economy, enhance public safety, respect and help our neighbors, and
build a more-prosperous future for ourselves and our children.”

Macon acknowledged that District 5 faces a variety of challenges that must be addressed with limited
esources. This requires setting spending priorities and ensuring that county government is responsive,
accountable, and efficient. It will also require being more resourceful so that long-time deficiencies can
be addressed and gaps filled.

“As a former fire district board president, I know how to do more with less,” Macon said. “I understand
the importance of spending taxpayer dollars wisely and well.”

Macon's grassroots campaign team relies on community volunteers, not paid consultants. “I look forward
to running a positive campaign over the next six months,” she declared. “I plan to knock on every door
in District 5. I want to introduce myself to people who may not know me and give everyone an opportunity
to tell me about their history here, their concerns about the present, and their hopes for the future of our community.
I want to hear people's ideas for making Amador County an even better place to live, work, visit, and retire.”
