Letter: Masur for supervisorResidents of the town of Portola Valley, Ladera and Vista Verde enjoy a quality of life that is second to none. Maintaining and improving upon that quality of life, however, requires working with partners at all levels of government, especially our own county government.
Our county representatives play a vital role in providing us with our police protection, public health and animal control services, as well as influencing funding priorities for local transportation and local parks enjoyed by us.
Now, more than ever before, it is important that our community have strong south county advocates on the county Board of Supervisors. That is why I am supporting Shelly Masur in the June 5 election for county supervisor.
Shelly Masur is an experienced local elected official with a commitment to effectively leveraging limited dollars to promote efficiency and improve services. Shelly has spent a great deal of time getting to know the important issues and building relationships with city, school and community leaders and will be an effective voice for those of us living in South San Mateo County.
Kent Mitchell, former mayor, Town of Portola Valley
