Just a few months after moving from board member to president of the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors for 2012, Supervisor Adrienne Tissier announced her candidacy this week for reelection.
Tissier has served on the board since 2005. She is in her second term as president; she served in the lead role in 2008 as well.
“I am proud of the work we have done to make government more effective, create the nation's first pharmaceutical disposal program, establish Older Driver Traffic Safety Seminars, and develop Foreclosure Prevention Workshops," Tissier said of her time on the board.
"Although we still face difficult economic times, I am working to cultivate a strong economic development plan to bring needed revenue to our county," she continued. "I will continue to proactively plan for San Mateo (County)'s future by streamlining our services, improving shared services opportunities, and providing for the health, safety and welfare of our community."
Tissier also serves as the chair of both the Metropolitan Transit Commission and Caltrain, and serves on the Samtrans Board of Directors, where she said she "is aggressively seeking a dedicated source of funding to keep this vital transit link alive, and improve mobility in and around the county."
Tissier’s campaign has already received endorsements from Congresswoman Jackie Speier, Assemblymembers Jerry Hill and Rich Gordon, and San Mateo County Supervisors Carole Groom, Don Horsely and Rose Jacobs Gibson.
