Candidate Biography:

1906: Member, San Francisco County Board of Supervisors
1907: Resigned from the Railroad Commission on November 19.

  • EXTRAORDINARY REBUKE: When Governor James N. Gillett called the 1st Extraordinary Session of 1907, one of the reasons was to allow the legislature "to remove Andrew M. Wilson from the office of Railroad Commissioner, on the ground of corruption and incompetency on the part of the said Wilson."
