The San Mateo County Democratic Party (also known as the San Mateo County Democratic Central Committee, or SMC DCC) held their Endorsement Meeting last night.
“It was a unanimous vote with a couple of abstentions.” “No endorsement passed in a landslide.” said Sabrina Brennan
This is a big deal for San Mateo County Voters who have not had a say in who their Sheriff is in the last 25 years. The Supervisors have made sure of that in the past and most recently when Supervisors Don Horsley, Warren Slocum and Adrienne Tissier Illegally Appointed Carlos Bolanos Sheriff July 12, 2016. This is a contested election between San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Mark Melville and Carlos Bolanos. Voters can vote as early as May 8th with mail-in ballots and the official election date is June 5, 2018.
