Mr. Galligan has just wasted San Mateo County taxpayer dollars on a frivolous losing lawsuit to subvert the democratic process. Why anyone would vote for this glorified Turbotax jockey is beyond comprehension. Galligan, whose only qualification is that he is a tax preparer with a CPA, lost in his effort to disqualify his only opponent for County Controller, Juan Raigoza, the current San Mateo County Assistant Controller.

How can Mr. Galligan claim to have the best interests of San Mateo County taxpayers and voters at heart, when he wastes our money in a brazen attempt to subvert the electoral process? I hope the voters hand Mr. Galligan an overwhelming repudiation at the polls in June for his shameless and cynical lawsuit. Let's see if Mr. Galligan doubles down on his disgusting tactics and appeals his well deserved defeat in this lawsuit.

Mr. Juan Raigoza, on the other hand, is an inspiring testimonial to the American Dream: Web Link He is clearly the only qualified candidate to run the Controller's office.
