Former State Treasurer Phil Angelides has backed Teddy King’s candidacy for a seat on the Piedmont City Council in the Feb. 4 municipal election, according to a press release from the King campaign.
“I have known Teddy King for over 20 years," Angelides said in a statement Monday. "She is a smart, effective public servant who will represent the residents well. She will make an outstanding leader on the Piedmont City Council.”
Angelides is the second official who was elected state-wide to endorse King. She was endorsed by California Controller John Chiang in December.
King, a member of the city's Recreation Commission, is one of three candidates for the three open seats on the council. The other candidates are Tim Rood, a member of Piedmont's Budget Advisory and Financial Planning Committee, and Jeff Wieler, an incumbent who is seeking a second consecutive council term.
