Dan McAllister has big early lead in Treasurer race over Greg Hodosevich

In early returns San Diego County Treasurer-Tax Collector Dan McAllister appeared to be heading toward an easy re-election Tuesday night.

McAllister, who has held the role since 2002, was running against corporate executive Greg Hodosevich. The position is a four-year term and oversees a department that collects more than $7 billion in annual property taxes.

McAllister received the lion’s share of support, with endorsements from The San Diego Union-Tribune, Republican Party of San Diego County, Lincoln Club of San Diego County and others. Hodosevich was endorsed by the San Diego County Democratic Party.

Hodosevich ran a campaign on modernizing the department, while McAllister focused on accomplishments in the role and oversight of the county’s $14 billion investment pool.

The post is nonpartisan, but Hodosevich is a Democrat and McAllister is a Republican. It was unclear how much party impacted the race because of McAllister’s long tenure.
