Kind words about the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors

...I attended the reorganization meeting of the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors, mainly to witness the swearing in of the newest member Dave Canepa. It, too, was a very crowded event. Hard to find a place to park and hard to find a seat. What impressed me was how much good these officials do for the community. Supervisor Warren Slocum helped set up a homeless shelter for vets on the VA site. Supervisor Dave Pine has been the advocate and go-to guy to protect us from sea level rise and has even been invited to the Netherlands as a local expert. Supervisor Carole Groom has worked tirelessly on The Big Lift, a program to ensure kids can read at the proper grade level. And Don Horsley, the new president of the board, assured our local immigrant population that we will keep them safe from federal witch hunts.
