Canepa, continues to defy the odds against the powerful Sacramento Assembly Pro Tempore Kevin Mullin. Mullin, who hails from a distinguished political dynasty and recently lent his campaign $60,000 of his own family’s money, is facing a FEC complaint for allegedly spending corporate money illegally in the congressional race.
Canepa, a fourth-generation son of San Mateo County of Mexican and Italian heritage, led San Mateo County through the COVID-19 pandemic. He announced his candidacy on November 20th at Seton Medical Center in Daly City. Canepa, the former Mayor of Daly City, was born at the hospital and led the county’s effort to save it from bankruptcy just prior to the pandemic.
