Slocum won't seek re-election to county post

 

Warren Slocum, a man who wears many hats in San Mateo County, won't seek re-election this fall. Mr. Slocum is the chief elections officer for the county, as well as the assessor, recorder and county clerk. His term ends January 2011.

In a statement released on the county's election's Web site, Shape the Future, Mr. Slocum said he's ready to "consider doing other things." He was first elected in 1986, and has served in government since 1976, he said.

"During my terms of office, I have had the good fortune to work with some of the best and brightest elected officials and the finest men and woman in government. The residents of San Mateo County are blessed with a stable, well-run county government," he said in his statement.
