Most of the members of the San Diego County Board of Supervisors have been in office for more than 20 years. That will change after this year’s election.

New supervisors will be elected in Districts 4 and 5 because of the addition of term limits for the board positions.

District 4 covers most of the central city of San Diego from La Jolla to downtown, from Ocean Beach to Encanto. It is currently represented by termed-out Supervisor Ron Roberts.

Former California Assemblywoman Lori Saldaña is one of five candidates in the District 4 race. She’s a professor of business information technology for the San Diego Community College District. She is a Democrat. The supervisors positions are officially non-partisan, but right now all five supervisors on the board are Republican.
