They didn't mention Judge races.... it's unusual that this time we have two contested races for open Superior Court Judge seats.
I recommend Susan Greenberg for "Office # 4.... she's been a Court Commissioner (appointed judge) for 14 years and is very well qualified for this elected seat.

Thanks for posting this. It's a shame no one stepped forward to run against DA Wagstaffe - especially as it was posted here that in 2010, the California Bar sent Wagstaffe a warning about lying to the press about the facts of a criminal defendant's case.

Alas, this is what happens when "special interest groups" are allowed to rule over the wishes of the majority. If an office-holder represents the entire county, then the entire county should decide who wins. When the voters are divided into little groups, aka districts, as happened here in San Mateo County, then small vocal minorities within those areas are able to control everyone else. That was SO foreseeable but no one paid attention so now we have this unfortunate sequel.
