Records from the county Elections Office show two candidates running for sheriff: appointed incumbent Carlos G. Bolanos and challenger Mark D. Melville.
Mr. Bolanos was undersheriff and then appointed sheriff on a 3-2 vote by the Board of Supervisors in July 2016 after then-sheriff Greg Munks moved up the date of his announced plans to retire. Voting with the majority were supervisors Don Horsley, Warren Slocum and Adrienne Tissier. Supervisors Dave Pine and Carole Groom dissented.
Mr. Melville has been a deputy sheriff in San Mateo County since 2008, his website says. He says he served on police forces in Half Moon Bay, Patterson and Brisbane and was an adjunct professor with the Regional Police Academy at Modesto Junior College.
In the race for county superintendent of schools, of the two candidates who filed, both have positions in the county Office of Education: Nancy Magee is the associate superintendent for student services and Gary Waddell is the deputy superintendent for instructional services. Anne Campbell, currently in her second term as county superintendent of public schools, announced in June that she would not be seeking re-election.
Supervisor Don Horsley has filed for re-election for a third term on the board. Challenging him is Pacifica resident Bridget Duffy. Ms. Duffy lists her occupation as "homemaker" in smartvoter.org archives from the November 2016 election, when she ran for Pacifica City Council.
Election Office records also list Ms. Duffy as running for governor and superintendent of public instruction, and challenging Congresswoman Jackie Speier, D-San Mateo, and Assemblyman Kevin Mullin, who represents the 22nd Assembly District in San Mateo County.
