Mayor Kevin Faulconer Monday endorsed county Supervisor Dianne Jacob's reelection bid.
Jacob represents East County. A couple of city neighborhoods fall in her district.
"I've worked closely with Supervisor Jacob on a number of issues, most recently on the Alzheimer's Project, which seeks to accelerate the search for a cure for this devastating disease," Faulconer said. "I appreciate Dianne's
dedication to serving her constituents and her enthusiasm for addressing challenging issues facing our county."
Jacob was endorsed for a seventh term last week by the Deputy Sheriffs Association, and was previously supported by Sheriff Bill Gore and District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis.
Sen. Joel Anderson, R-El Cajon, has been reported to be considering a challenge to Jacob since he is being termed out of the Legislature.
