District 4 Supervisor Candidates Hold Public Debate Tonight

Warren Slocum and Shelly Masur will make their positions on the issues known at a Redwood City forum

The two remaining candidates for the District 4 seat on the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors will square off in a debate and forum forum tonight at the Fair Oaks Community Center in Redwood City.

Warren Slocum, a Redwood City resident, is a retired San Mateo County Clerk and the former Chief Elections Officer & Assessor-County Clerk-Recorder for San Mateo County.

Shelly Masur, also of Redwood City, is a trustee on the Redwood City School District board and the immediate past president of the San Mateo County School Boards Association, among many other positions. In a recent Q&A with Patch, Masur said the two issues she feels are of a top priority in the County, and that she would largely focus on, are healthcare reform and realignment.

The two candidates came out on top in the June primary, out of eight who applied. Slocum was the top vote-getter with roughly 40 percent of the votes in his favor. Masur garnered roughly 21 percent.

The public is invited to attend the debate, which will bein at 7 p.m. at the Fair Oaks Community Center, 2600 Middlefield Road in Redwood City.

I voted for Warren Slocum for several reasons. I believe he will represent the average citizen and taxpayer who is not well connected in San Mateo County. He will stand up to the other board members well. I respected his original position on accepting the salary of Supervisor and now understand he has changed that to match Don Horsley's of NOT taking the salary because of his pension. VOTE Slocum
