County Supervisor Dianne Jacob’s re-election campaign announced Monday that she has won the endorsement of San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer for a historic seventh term.

“I appreciate Dianne’s dedication to serving her constituents and her enthusiasm for addressing challenging issues facing our county,” said Faulconer. “I’m proud to join dozens of other community leaders in supporting her re-election.”

Jacob represents District 2, which stretches from the eastern edge of San Diego to Julian and the Imperial County border. She faces a re-election challenge in 2016 from fellow Republican Joel Anderson, who is completing his second and last term as state senator representing much of the same area.

“Mayor Faulconer has been a great partner and done a tremendous job leading the City of San Diego,” said Jacob. “He understands the importance of cooperation and collaboration between government agencies to solve problems for our residents, and I greatly appreciate his support for my re-election.”

Sheriff Bill Gore and District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis have also endorsed Jacob.
