Proven Leader of Contra Costa County
County Supervisor Candace Andersen has spent the last 27 years serving the community and in public office. She was first elected to the Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors in 2012, ran unopposed in 2016, and is running again in 2020.
Supervisor Andersen is often asked “What’s next? Will she seek higher office?” Her consistent reply is that she has no plans to run for another position. She loves her work and believes that she can continue to make the biggest difference right here in Contra Costa County. Candace has also expressed her disdain and disappointment with the partisan bickering and politicking currently taking place in Sacramento and in Washington DC. The Board of Supervisors is “non-partisan,” as it should be. The issues we face in our county are not “Republican” or “Democrat,” just problems that need to be solved.
Supervisor Andersen began her public service in 1991, serving on two Morgan Hill City Commissions and then its City Council. In 2003 she joined the Danville Town Council, serving for the next nine years, twice as Mayor. She is an attorney licensed to practice law in both California and Hawaii, and began her legal career as a criminal prosecutor in her hometown of Honolulu. Learn more about Supervisor Andersen.
