Political Watcher say this is a Great article about the Supervisor race, I would say Hardly.
The web link went to an article about Shelly Masur period, it did not cover the other 7 candidates for the District 4 seat. It is highly likely that Shelly is the next Supervisor elected to District 4 and I say that because she is endorsed by the community at 1153 Chess Drive Foster City. They are organized and have 70,000 members and spouses, phone banks, and have a COPE that mails endorsement recommendation fliers to their members. Union members tend to follow the recommendations of their leaders.
Last election a total of 95,664 people voted, how many do you think came from this organized community. That is one of the disadvantages San Mateo County has with at-large elections.
