Election 2010: Four file for Atherton council race; deadline extendedIncumbents Jim Dobbie and Jerry Carlson, town Audit Committee member Bill Widmer, and Cary Weist will be on the November ballot in the race for three open seats on the Atherton City Council, with more candidates likely to file papers by the Wednesday, Aug. 11, deadline.
Mr. Weist filed his papers on Monday afternoon. The Almanac has been unable to contact him for information.
Incumbent Charles Marsala, who announced in the spring that he didn't plan to run, was true to his word, and as a result, the filing period for non-incumbents has been extended to 5 p.m. Wednesday.
Audit Committee member Rose Hau took out candidate papers on Aug. 6, joining Planning Commissioner Phil Lively and Rail Committee member Mike McPherson as potential candidates who must return papers to City Hall to qualify for the ballot.
