I want to vote for Warren Slocum for San Mateo County Supervisor, but I don't want him double-dipping from both the pension fund, an income flow he has earned and is entitled to, while receiving a paycheck for being a Supervisor from the County at the same time, which he would also be entitled to. I am certain both draw 6 figures. I wonder if he would, since he has an income stream, consider fore-going double dipping since economic times in our county are so poor we are funning deficit. I plan to vote for him if we can get over this question of funds because he is the best candidate with the most experience. I posted this question on his wall, but it was deleted. It is interesting to watch this.

Warren Slocum has already addressed this topic which is he will receive the Supervisor income in addition to his other earned income. I respect him for that, he told us upfront.
I think its more important how he would vote on county issues.
Don Horsley ran on the promise not to except the Supervisor income if elected, that was a major part of his campaign, his choice now he has to live with it and the $208,000 per year pension he receives. Look how he has voted.
I'm more concerned about candidates ignoring oaths they take and promise to fulfill a term they are completely aware of.

I know this is a little off topic, if you wanted to have a Double Dipping conversation I think you would have to include UnderSheriff Carlos Bolanos as one of the leaders. $350,000 plus
