Atherton: Rose Hau now an official council candidate

Atherton now has three official candidates for three open seats on its five-member city council. Rose Hau, an architect who is vice chair of the Civic Center Advisory Committee, has qualified to run and will join incumbents Bill Widmer and Rick DeGolia in the November election.

Michael Lempres, an attorney who is a member of the town's Transportation Committee and its Rail Committee, has also taken out the nomination papers for the race, but has not yet filed them to become an official candidate.

Mr. Widmer is completing his first four-year term and Mr. DeGolia was elected to a one-year term last year to fill the seat left vacant when Jerry Carlson resigned because he was moving from Atherton.

The council now has only four members. Jim Dobbie, whose term was to expire in November, resigned earlier this year due to poor health, and his unfilled seat is one of the three that voters will fill this fall. Mr. Dobbie passed away on July 24.

The deadline for filing is Friday, Aug. 8.
