Tracy Councilwoman Rhodesia Ransom began her campaign for county supervisor with a filing last week.

San Joaquin County Registrar of Voters Melinda Dubroff confirmed Wednesday that Ransom had filed a Form 501, Candidate Intention Statement, to represent the Fifth Supervisorial District on the county board of supervisors for the 2020 general election.

The district covers most of southern San Joaquin County, including Tracy and Mountain House. Supervisor Bob Elliott has represented the district since 2012 and announced last year he is seeking the State Senate seat for the Fifth District, which also includes Tracy and Mountain House, in the 2020 general election.

Ransom ran against Elliott in 2012 and was elected to the Tracy City Council in 2016. She lives in Tracy with her husband and has raised three children here.

Ransom did not respond to a request for comment about her campaign.

Dubroff said no other candidates have yet filed their Form 501 for the Fifth Supervisorial District.
