Slocum won't seek re-election; Church goes for post

Warren Slocum, a man who wears many hats in San Mateo County, announced Feb. 10 that he won't seek re-election this fall. Mr. Slocum is the chief elections officer for the county, as well as the assessor, recorder and county clerk. His term ends in January 2011.

The very next day, county Supervisor Mark Chuch announced that he will run for the four-position post in the November election, and said he is already endorsed by all four of his colleagues on the county Board of Supervisors. An attorney, Mr. Church was first elected to Board of Supervisors in 2000, and will be termed out of office in 2012. He is a former Millbrae mayor and councilman.

In a statement released Feb. 10, Mr. Slocum said he's ready to "consider doing other things." He was first elected in 1986, and has served in government since 1976, he said.

"During my terms of office, I have had the good fortune to work with some of the best and brightest elected officials and the finest men and woman in government. The residents of San Mateo County are blessed with a stable, well-run county government," he said.
