Democratic Central Committee endorses Shelly Masur for the Board of Supervisors
Original post made by Dave Burruto Fan on Apr 22, 2012
Dave Burruto has a sterling character and most likely weighed in on this most appropriate endorsement. Ms. Masur has the most experience and has paid her dues. Mr. Burruto said "Masur has the best credentials and her values closely align with those of the Democratic Party".
We should all commend the San Mateo County Democratic Central Committee for it's most wise endorsement.

In my opinion local elections should NOT involve either partisan political or union endorsements. Neither political parties or unions have anything to contribute to our election of our local leaders. Voters should select the candidate who best represent their individual interests not someone who proposes to serve a political party or a union.

I agree with Peter. And, I would never vote for someone the unions were backing.

Peter, as you know I agree with you, however they are involved and influence the results of San Mateo County's At-Large elections.
Shelly is endorsed by almost all the unions in San Mateo County. Bill Nack and Shelly Kessler of 1153 Chess Drive, Foster City have 70,000 to 75,000 members plus spouses to influence.
I'm not sure what the numbers are for this group in the article but it's fair to say if we have a turnout of 100,000 voters Shelly is our next Supervisor.
This is why District Elections are important for San Mateo County.
Good Luck to all the candidates most people don't know but it cost between $5,000-$8,000
just to get on the ballot with 200 words about yourself.
