Election results shows Menlo Park City Council member Ray Mueller with a sizable lead in the race for the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors District 3 against San Carlos City Council member Laura Parmer-Lohan.

As of 11 a.m. on Nov. 9, Mueller had 19,758 votes, or 64.3% to Parmer-Lohan's 10,947 votes, or 35.7% of the count.

District 3 is the largest district in San Mateo County by area, encompassing seven cities and 20 unincorporated areas. The district ranges from Pacifica south almost to Santa Cruz on the coast and as well as inland communities including Atherton, Portola Valley, Woodside and West Menlo Park.

Mueller has said that his priorities are housing, education, infrastructure and putting a focus on the coastal towns in the district as well as inland cities. Parmer-Lohan, on the other hand, is focused on mitigating the effects of drought, addressing wildfire risk and reproductive rights.

"I want to thank the residents of District 3 for participating in this historic election," Parmer-Lohan said. "I'm really proud of what we've accomplished."
