Lopez Manuel Lopez, the recently retired Chief Administrative Officer for San Joaquin County, has been endorsed by the Ripon Police Officers Association in his campaign to become the next San Joaquin County Supervisor for District 4.
District 4 includes Lodi, Ripon, Escalon and eastern San Joaquin County.
“We need a partner on the Board of Supervisors we can work with to help keep criminals off our streets and make our neighborhoods as crime free as possible”, said association president Scott King. “With his experience as San Joaquin County’s longest serving Chief Executive Officer, we know that Manuel Lopez has the ability and know how to be just the partner we need. His financial stewardship of the county’s tax dollars during the economic downturn we faced ensured that County dollars for public safety stayed at levels required to prevent massive cuts to officers and services.”
Lopez retired in 2013. He is a veteran of the United States Air Force and a graduate of Fresno State University. He has been married to his wife Sylvia, for 38 years. Together, they have four children and seven grandchildren.
