John Peschong, a candidate for county supervisor, has been endorsed by Anthony Kalvans, a San Miguel Community Services District Board director who withdrew from the same supervisorial race last week.
Peschong, a political consultant and Republican strategist, is a candidate for the San Luis Obispo County Board of Supervisor’s 1st District, which represents most of the North County. His campaign announced Saturday that he had been endorsed by Kalvans, who withdrew because of family health issues.
Kalvans said at the time that he would consider endorsing a candidate who shared his concern that rural areas of the district were often overlooked. Kalvans said he was supporting Peschong because “every resident — no matter the street, town or region, will have someone who is both willing to listen to their concerns and fight for their issues,” according to a news release from Peschong’s campaign.
Three others have announced their candidacies for the 1st District seat: John Hamon, a Paso Robles city councilman; Paso Robles Mayor Steve Martin; and Paso Robles resident Dale Gustin.
