This is a critically important race to Menlo Park residents (and others) because the county employee pension based debt is even more frightening than what has happened to the cities and towns - and we taxpayers hold the bag for county debt, no-one else. It's painfully obvious - there has to be a leadership attitude change among the five county supervisors before county employee costs will be seriously addressed. This election and the one coming next year are our chance as voters to make that change from old thinking to reality.

The Taxpayers and voters of San Mateo County can thank reporter Bonnie Eslinger of the SJMN for getting me included in some of these candidate forums.

2/3/11 Voters get first chance to compare San Mateo County Supervisor Candidates.
She asked panel organizer Carole Dorshkind why I and 2 other candidates were not invited?
Her response was "She wasn't aware the three were running?....Really?

2/25/11 Supervisor candidate excluded from forum ----AGAIN
Right after this article and Bonnie making several calls I received invitations.

I think it is fair to say that the 110 Unions in San Mateo County have picked the 4 candidates they want the public to know about.

Sorry, but further commenting on this topic has been closed.
