Menlo Park Council member Ray Mueller takes big lead in race for San Mateo County Board of Supervisors

by Cameron Rebosio

Semi-official election results as of Wednesday afternoon show 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 noon on Nov. 9, Mueller had 18,781 votes, or 64.3% to Parmer-Lohan's 10,436 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 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 said she was focused on mitigating the effects of drought, addressing wildfire risk and reproductive rights.

Parmer-Lohan, a member of the LGBTQ community, emphasized in her campaign the diversity she would bring to the board, which has been overwhelmingly straight, white and male throughout its history.

"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."
