In the race for a seat on the board of the Midpeninsula Regional Open Space District to represent Ward 6, Carter J. Warr has picked up nomination papers. Ward 6 includes Atherton, Menlo Park, Portola Valley and Woodside.
Incumbent Roy Thiele-Sardina has qualified as a candidate for the board of the West Bay Sanitary District.
In the Sequoia Healthcare District, governing board incumbent Jerry Shefren told The Almanac that he will be running for election to represent Zone E, which includes Woodside, Portola Valley and nearby unincorporated communities.
The filing deadline for nomination papers is 5 p.m. Friday, Aug. 10, unless an incumbent chooses not to run, in which case the deadline is extended to 5 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 15. No extensions to the Aug. 10 deadline will be granted for Menlo Park council races, however, as current council members are not considered incumbents under the new district election system.
