Candace Andersen

Contra Costa County Supervisor District 2

 

Candace was elected to the Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors in 2012 and quickly established herself as an effective countywide leader. She is widely respected for her competency and her compassionate approach to making county government work for all of her constituents. Candace?s political life took root in Morgan Hill in the early 1990s where she served on its city council while pursuing her professional career as an attorney. When she and her husband, Phil, moved to Danville a decade later, she continued serving her community as an elected member of the Danville Town Council from 2003-2012. A licensed attorney in California and Hawaii, Candace returned to her hometown of Honolulu after law school and worked as a prosecuting attorney. (In a fun fact about Candace?s school years, she attended the famed Punahou School with the then-teenaged President Barack Obama.) Candace and her husband, Phil, have been married 34 years and have six children and five grandchildren.

EVENT BACKGROUND: The Building Industry Association of the Bay Area represents more than 400 companies that develop, design, and build homes across the region. In 2017, four of our industry?s best and brightest women conceived the Women in the Lead Conference as a way to nurture, inspire and promote women?s leadership. The ladies were definitely onto something as evidenced by the quality of the speakers and the sold-out house for the first three half-day conferences. Please enjoy some highlights from our previous conferences HERE.  Past keynote speakers included:

  • The late Ellen O. Tauscher, a seven-term congresswoman from the East Bay and Under Secretary of State for Arms Control and International Security
  • Lindsey Gottlieb, former Cal Women?s basketball head coach
  • Hannah Gordon, chief administrative officer and general counsel for the San Francisco 49ers
  • Ruthie Bolton, speaker, author, advocate and two-time Olympic gold medalist
  • Julian Guthrie, journalist and author of ?Alpha Girls: The Women Upstarts Who Took on Silicon Valley?s Male Culture and the Deals of a Lifetime.?
