Andrea Macon For District 5 Supervisor: "Respect our past while building our future."

Andrea Macon is on the ballot for District 5 Supervisor
Pledges to 'respect our past while building our future'

Andrea Macon’s campaign team succeeded in gathering more than enough valid signatures from registered District 5 voters to ensure that her name will be included on the June ballot as a candidate for county supervisor.

“I am extremely grateful for the dedication and hard work of my campaign volunteers,” Macon said. “I am very excited to have this opportunity to serve the residents of District 5--and to give voters a choice for fresh representation when they head to the polls in June. We intend to keep the momentum going right up to Election Day, and beyond.”

In Amador County, a supervisorial candidate must either pay a fee equal to one percent of the supervisor’s annual salary or gather enough ‘in lieu’ signatures (seven percent of district residents) to have the candidate filing fee waived. In District 5, seven percent of registered voters would be 305. Macon’s volunteers obtained 370 signatures, which exceeded the number submitted by the three-term incumbent supervisor for District 5.

Greta McElroy, Amador County’s Chief Deputy Registrar of Voters, reported that of the 13 candidates running for public office in Amador County who took out petitions to gather ‘in lieu’ signatures, only three collected enough signatures to have their candidate filing fee waived.

Macon's grassroots campaign team relies on community volunteers, not paid consultants. "I look forward to continuing to run a positive campaign over the next four months," she declared. Macon has been walking neighborhoods in District 5, knocking on every door to introduce herself and ask residents about their history in the county, their current concerns, and their hopes and vision for our future.
