Huntington Beach, CA — County Supervisor Todd Spitzer today endorsed Michelle Steel for County Supervisor, giving Steel the support of 4 of 5 current Supervisors. Spitzer represents the 3rd district on the Board of Supervisors and is also a former Orange County State Assemblyman.
Steel received an impressive 47.7% of the vote in the four-way primary election, more than doubling the second place finisher on Tuesday. She currently represents Orange County on the State Board of Equalization, where she serves as California’s foremost taxpayer advocate.
“I am very grateful to receive Supervisor Spitzer’s endorsement and I look forward to working with him on issues he is passionate about, including the rights of crime victims,” said Steel.
In addition to Spitzer, Steel has the support of Supervisors Shawn Nelson, Janet Nguyen and Pat Bates, Sheriff Sandra Hutchens, District Attorney Tony Rackauckas and many other local and community leaders. She is also endorsed by Congressmen Dana Rohrabacher and Ed Royce and Senator Mimi Walters.
