Woodside election: No contest for council seats

 

Woodside has a Town Council election Tuesday, Nov. 8, but there is no contest. All four candidates will be elected.

The Woodside council decided to hold an election instead of appointing the unopposed candidates to give residents an opportunity to file as write-in candidates.

However, no write-in candidates filed by the Oct. 25 deadline. Votes for write-ins who are not registered are not counted, said David Tom, San Mateo County elections manager.

Woodside has a district election system: each council member must reside in a particular district but is elected town-wide. Each of the candidates on the ballot is running unopposed in his district (they are all men).

The four Woodside candidates, and soon to be councilmen, include three incumbents -- Dave Burow (District 5), Peter Mason (District 7) and Ron Romines (District 1) -- plus a newcomer, Tom Shanahan (District 3).
