Even if you work half as hard to be a Mendocino County Supervisor as you do a Disaster Case Manager, Mendocino County would be lucky to have you! — Eva King

Jon has been very helpful with the process of rebuilding our home. He has been a true advocate for the survivors of the recent fires. We think he would be a great supervisor! — Don and Sharon Foster

Supervisor Kennedy had an uncanny ability to cut through the nonsense and get straight to the point. His understanding of Health and Human Services (behavioral health) and how it relates to law enforcement, the toll it takes on staff and most importantly, the patient, was a breath of fresh air.

We may have wrangled during budget times, but Jon always had the interests of the citizens at the forefront, with no personal agenda to promote.


— Plumas County Sheriff, Greg Hagwood

I hope everyone gets out and votes for their District Supervisors. I strongly endorse Jon Kennedy for District 1. He is the man with a plan to lead Mendocino County in the right direction . He is a stand up guy who brings a wealth of experience to the table. 👍 — Christian Luiz

Fellow has-been and former Humboldt County Supervisor, gladly endorses Jon Kennedy. — Mark Lovelace

I have had the privilege to interact with Jon over three phases of my life: First, as a peer in high school where he passionately served as our Student Body President. Second, as a volunteer firefighter in Sonoma County where he religiously attended training and inspired us to be our best in times of need. Lastly, as a CAL FIRE chief officer and appointee of two Governors when I saw him advocate for survivors of some of the worst wildland fires our state has ever seen.

Is he blunt? Yes! Is he compassionate with a servant’s heart? Absolutely!!! I give my endorsement of Jon without hesitation and with a full heart after seeing all he’s done for his neighbors and his constituents.

— Janet Upton

I worked with Jon on his campaign for Plumas County Supervisor. To be honest, i didn't follow his work there so I can't speak to that. But what I did learn is that he is wicked smart, funny and you couldn't find anyone more dedicated to public service. — Steve Shepherd

No nonsense leadership. — Jason Klemesrud

Jon did a fine job as supervisor in Plumas. We miss his voice. He’ll do a great job for Mendocino ! — John Sheehan

My dad is one of the hardest working men I know. Without him, I wouldn't have the opportunities I do today. Over 30 years ago, my dad had a major heart attack at work. I thank Jon Kennedy for being there, reviving him, and riding in the ambulance with him. Jon saved my dad's life, which made my family's life better. Jon is one of the best people I know! — Mousa Husary

Jon Kennedy cares more about local politics and the people he represents than any supervisor I’ve ever seen. His dedication to his community goes beyond the scope of the run-of-the-mill politician. — Michael Danger

I've known Jon Kennedy my entire life and he has always been a person that will get the job done. When I needed help he was right there for me. Jon is a family man who honors and loves his family greatly. I believe he looks at his community through this same lens. Jon is brilliant, kind, dedicated, hard working and honest. Having Jon Kennedy at the helm as Supervisor would truly be a great asset for Mendocino County. — Kimberlee Kayton

Jon is an honest man with experience in local government. He worked hard for our county and was an advocate for our children. We need people like Jon in government. — Carol and Richard Martinez

Jon was elected Plumas County Supervisor during the Great Recession while we were struggling to keep Chalet View Lodge open. He worked tirelessly and effectively his entire tenure, I truly don’t think the county would have stayed solvent without him. Mendocino County would be wise to elect him. — Bob Hickman

I think Jon Kennedy would do a great job! he has my vote — Scott Harpe

Hope you can do better at getting East rd. in PV repaired! — Donald Bone

I've known Jon for nearly 40 years. Plain and simple, if you want someone to get the job done, think reasonably and logically, who has more compassion and work ethic than most people I know—a friend who will drop anything to help a complete stranger, Jon Kennedy is your guy. — Jason Lewis
