Briefs: Voting opens for June election

San Mateo County has opened the early voting period for the upcoming June 3 election and sent out vote-by-mail ballots.

Voters may cast ballots by going to one of two voting centers, located at 40 Tower Road in San Mateo and 555 County Center in Redwood City. The centers will be open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays through June 2, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, May 31, and from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. on election day, which is Tuesday, June 3

Go to shapethefuture.org to apply to vote by mail. Applications are also available in the "Sample Ballot and Official Voter Information" pamphlet.

Commissioners appointed

One new face will join the return of a familiar one when the Menlo Park Planning Commission next meets. On April 29, the City Council reappointed Ben Eiref to a second four-year term, and selected Andrew Combs to replace Henry Riggs, whose term had ended.

Mr. Combs holds a law degree from Harvard University and works as a communications consultant and freelance writer, according to his application. He has served as a bicycle commissioner, tutored for the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Peninsula, and volunteered as an elections officer.

He wrote that his desire to serve on the Planning Commission "stems not from a desire to accomplish a specific task. My interests are driven by a desire to engage and contribute to the conversation about how Menlo Park can best develop and thrive in the years and decades ahead."
