Dean Andal, a Stockton Republican activist and a member of the California Board of Equalization, has sued the San Joaquin County Registrar of Voters, claiming that a ballot measure to extend the supervisors’ term limits is misleading.

The measure, placed on the November ballot by the Board of Supervisors, would extend the term limits ordinance to three four-year terms. The current ordinance limits supervisors to two terms.

    Roy, I agree with you about the Boards stance on Brown's water tunnels, but do you really think our Sup's have much of a voice in the matter? We need strong representation in Sac & WDC to prevent such a boondoggle.

    FWIW, Dean Andal is a wannabe player in the GOP. He's just another career politican like Jack Sieglock with high hopes and short on ideas, people skills, and real party backing ($$$).

    I believe the preservation of Northern California water resources is the biggest issue facing the county if not all of Northern California. I think the current board members understand the pros and cons of the proposed plan to increase flows of water from North to South and I think they are prepared to defend against this fiasco.
    Who knows what a new member of this board might think about increasing flows of Delta water to the South.
    I normally favor term limits but I believe this board will work to protect our water resources while any new members may or may not.
