Rich Gordon to run for state Assembly seat

He currently serves on the county Board of Supervisors

Rich Gordon is officially looking to trade his seat on the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors for a seat in the California State Assembly.

Mr. Gordon, a Menlo Park resident, will be taking advantage of an open seat in the 21st District when Assemblyman Ira Ruskin is termed out of office in 2010. It's no secret that he's been considering running, but he made it official on March 18.

"I'm fully aware of the mess in Sacramento. We must fix the dysfunctional system and make our government accountable to the real needs of our people," Mr. Gordon said in his announcement. "I'm confident I can provide the leadership that is needed for California."

Mr. Gorton's key endorsements include that of Rep. Anna Eshoo, D-Menlo Park, and Mary Davey, a director of the Midpeninsula Regional Open Space District.

Mr. Gordon is a Democrat currently serving his third term on the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors. He previously served two terms on the San Mateo County Board of Education. His announcement is online at www.RichGordon2010.com.
