Kirsten Keith beat out a heavily contested field to capture the prize endorsement of the North Peninsula Democratic Club for the District 4 seat on the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors. This seat has been viewed by many as a springboard for the 18th Congressional District seat currently held by Ms. Anna Eshoo of Menlo Park.
Ms. Eshoo is 69 years old. If Eshoo retires in 12 years she will be 81 years old and should Keith be successful in winning 3 terms on the Board of Supervisors she could be at the young age of 57 the successor to Anna Eshoo for the 18th CD Seat.
Many people view this as a two way race between the liberal Union Backed Shelly Masur and the moderate fiscally focused Kirsten Keith.
We shall see what happens
