This article went to print before Combs and Bradshaw were able to properly represent the situation. There is no note from the editor to clarify the update. The following three paragraphs have been added to the web version of the story (Web Link).

Combs is not currently a resident of the district -- he said he lives near the Caltrain station -- but if he decides to run, he and his family will move to the district .

Moving to the Willows or Flood Triangle neighborhoods, he said, is something he and his wife have been talking about. They have been "in and out of the market, he said. "This would fast-forward those plans."

"My interest in leaning toward running has taken this into account," he said. "I would be a resident (of the district) when I pull papers."

Hi. I've updated the story to reflect follow-up reporting I did with Mr. Combs after you (readers) raised the extremely salient question about where he lives. Thanks for keeping me on my toes and apologies for not being more clear that the story has been updated.
