One candidate for Atherton election

by Renee Batti

With an Aug. 9 filing deadline for the Atherton City Council race on the horizon, only one resident had filed papers for the single open seat by the Almanac's press time on Monday: Rick DeGolia, vice-chair of the Community Center Advisory Committee.

Four other residents took out candidate papers but hadn't filed them with the city clerk before press time. They are: John Ruggeiro, Greg Conlon, Diane Sandhu, and Michael Stogner.

All of them, as well as Mr. DeGolia, had applied for the seat last month, when council members sought applicants in the hope that they could appoint a member and avoid an election to fill the seat left vacant when Jerry Carlson resigned July 1. The council did not agree on an applicant, and called for an election.

The winner in the November election will serve out Mr. Carlson's term which ends in December 2014.

The filing period ends at 5 p.m. Friday, Aug. 9.
