With so many important national and statewide races this year, it is easy to overlook races with important but local consequences. In the very liberal County of San Mateo (San Francisco Peninsula), there are five candidates running in a non-partisan race to replace Rich Gordon as a County Supervisor. The San Mateo Daily Journal has an article on them with an online (non-scientific) poll. The notable result is that the leading candidate in this poll is the tea-party-endorsed candidate, Matt Grocott:
We won't find out if this non-scientific poll means anything until the election on June 8. However, Mr. Grocott is sane, sensible, and fiscally responsible. That makes him just the kind of Supervisor that the deficit-ridden county government needs right now.
