Former Congressman Paul N. "Pete” McCloskey is endorsing Don Franchi for San Mateo County Superior Court judge.
"Don Franchi has demonstrated excellence in dealing with laws protecting families, children and the elderly; and he has the judgmental skills, scholarship and quite competence to make a superb Superior Court judge,” McCloskey stated in a written release.
Franchi is running against Jerry Nastari for the seat vacated by the retirement of Judge John Runde. The election is June 3.
The Legislative Council of the San Mateo Union High School District Teachers Association voted to endorse Richard Holober in the Democratic primary for the 19th district state Assembly seat. Holober, president of the San Mateo community College Board "has a detailed understanding of the many complex issues facing our school system” and "will bring experience, enthusiasm and pragmatism to the state Capitol,” said president Craig Childress in an announcement of the endorsement.
Holober is opposed by County Supervisor Jerry Hill and Millbrae Mayor Gina Papan.
