Supervisor Mark Church to run for county post

Announced candidacy for assessor-recorder-county clerk-chief elections official

There's already a contender for Warren Slocum's old job. San Mateo County Supervisor Mark Church has announced on Feb. 11 that he will run for election to the post of chief elections officer, assessor, recorder and county clerk, a multi-tasking position held by Mr. Slocum.

Mr. Slocum announced Feb. 10 that he won't seek re-election this fall. His term ends in January 2011.

Supervisor Chuch said he is already endorsed by all four of his colleagues on the county Board of Supervisors. An attorney, Mr. Church was first elected to Board of Supervisors in 2000, and will be termed out of office in 2012. He is a former Millbrae mayor and councilman.

Slocum won't seek re-election to county post.
