San Diego County
Le ROY H. AUL
For five years LeRoy H. Aul has represented the village of Escondido on the county board of supervisors, making a creditable record in this connection, and before he was called to this office had rendered valuable service to the state of California. He was born in Nebraska, December 20, 1885, and is a son of F. M. and Carrie (Walker) Aul, the former a member of an old family of Pennsylvania. Both parents are now living in the Golden state.
In the public schools of Colorado, LeRoy H. Aul acquired an education, after which he was employed in various capacities, and in 1914, when a young man of twenty-nine, came to California. For ten years he served on county and state horticultural boards and since 1928 has been a member of the board of supervisors of San Diego County. He makes his home in Escondido and has done much to improve the roads in his district. He has exerted his influence in the furtherance of construction work in all parts of the county but has never favored the useless expenditure of public funds, standing at all times for economy and reform in the administration of the affairs of the county.
On the 2nd of July, 1916, Mr. Aul was married to Miss Ada M. Skinner, and they reside at 161 West Sixth Street, Escondido. Mr. Aul is a Kiwanian and his fraternal affiliations are with the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks and the Independent order of Odd Fellows, while his wife is one of the Daughters of Rebekah. He is a man of strict honesty, affable and optimistic by nature, and has a marked capacity for making and retaining friends. His talents have found their best expression in public service and, according to the residents of his district, he is destined to reach a high place in the state government.
