Andy Vasquez, the incumbent Supervisor for Yuba County’s 1st District has filed for reelection. In 2009, Vasquez was appointed to the position by Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger after Supervisor Dan Logue was elected to the California State Assembly.
Vasquez is a Vietnam Veteran, former Reserve Yuba County Sheriff Deputy, and a small business owner for over 40 years.
“I took office in 2009, right as the recession hit,” said Vasquez, “but we’ve worked hard, trimmed all departments, and maintained a balanced budget every single year since.”
During Vasquez’ term in office Yuba County residents are now protected by one of the best levee systems in the entire country, a new Sheriff’s Department was built, a record number of road repairs have been completed and major improvements have begun to North Beale Road. To encourage jobs, Vasquez worked to streamline the building permit process and eliminate many fees altogether.
Vasquez organized four Linda community clean-up days, removing over 350 tons of garbage and returning hundreds of shopping carts to local stores.
“My top priority is public safety,” said Vasquez. “We are in crisis, the state is releasing thousands of criminals back onto our streets and homeless populations are out of control. We need to make sure we have enough officers to protect lives and property.”
Andy and his wife Jeannie have five children and five grandchildren and enjoy volunteering for local groups and attending local charitable events. To learn more, visit www.AndyVasquez.com.
