Former San Mateo County sheriff Don Horsley and Coastside resident and businesswoman April Vargas will be on the November ballot in a runoff election for the District 3 Board of Supervisors seat.
The two candidates were the top vote-getters in yesterday's election, but a candidate for a supervisor seat must win 50 percent of the vote, plus one, to win the election.

The winner of the race will replace Rich Gordon of Menlo Park, who won his race yesterday (June 8)in the Democratic primary for the District 21 state Assembly seat.
Mr. Horsley currently serves as president of the Sequoia Healthcare District Board. He served as county sheriff from 1993 to 2007.
Ms. Vargas served a four-year term on the Midcoast Community Council, from 1999 to 2003, and has served on several county governmental committees. She also served for two years as legislative advocate for the environmental group, Committee for Green Foothills.
