Joel Anderson Must Explain His Controversial IBEW Endorsement
Eddie Sprecco, CEO
In full disclosure: I worked for then-State Senator Joel Anderson in a legislative and political capacity from 2010-2013. I have a good understanding of Joel's passions and policy positions over the years, and those of his supporters. I also happen to be born and raised in County Supervisorial District 2 and am active in the East County community. Given my history with one candidate, when this endorsement came before AGC for consideration, I recused myself from the normal advisory role - staff doesn't get a vote either way. AGC leadership ended up backing Poway Mayor Steve Vaus in this race, whose knowledge and leadership on regional transportation issues helped propel him to the endorsement.
