Tracy, CA – Tracy Mayor Robert Rickman, candidate for San Joaquin’s 5th Supervisorial District, expressed support today for the San Joaquin District Attorney’s decision to pursue an investigation into the e-cigarette company Juul, and the company’s alleged “false and misleading” advertising targeted toward minors.

“As a public safety professional and father of two teenagers, there is nothing I prioritize higher than the well being of our youth,” said Mayor Rickman in a statement. “I applaud the San Joaquin County DA’s decision to investigate these advertising practices.”

Mayor Rickman has been employed as a state police officer and Sergeant for the better part of two decades and has served on the Tracy City Council since 2010. He is currently running for the San Joaquin County Board of Supervisors, District 5.
