Four on the ballot for Atherton council

by Renee Batti

An extended filing period produced no new candidates for the race for two seats on the Atherton City Council. Four candidates for two open seats will be on the November ballot.

Incumbent Elizabeth Lewis is asking voters to return her to the council for a second term, while three-term incumbent Kathy McKeithen has chosen to step down.

Other candidates are: Cary Wiest, who ran unsuccessfully for a council seat in 2010; Greg Conlon, who ran on the Republican ticket against Rich Gordon for state Assembly in 2010 and who has served on several town advisory committees; and Denise Kupperman, a leader in the effort to build a new library in the park who also has been active on town committees.

Also on the November ballot will be three ballot measures asking voters if they support the council-approved plan to build a library in Holbrook-Palmer Park; if they support a proposal by the Little League to build permanent facilities in the park; and if funding for a planned new Town Center should be restricted primarily to private donations.
