The San Mateo County Board of Supervisors Race lost a candidate, when the East Palo Alto candidate, David Woods, ran out of campaign funds.
During the nomination period, which was from February 13- March 9, candidates declare candidacy and complete nomination paperwork, said Maeghan Hassel-Shearer, San Mateo County elections specialist.
Candidates must pay a $1,171.46 filing fee with that paperwork.
“He gave us a check to cover that,” Hassel-Shearer said, “Unfortunately we found out after the nomination period ended that the check had insufficient funds.” Woods was given a chance to resolve the deficiency. The county extended his fee deadline to April 6. He wrote a check for that too.
“That check, we found out last Friday, had insufficient funds as well,” she said.
Woods will remain an East Palo Alto City Councilmember until his term concludes on November 2014.
The remaining seven candidates in the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors election have all qualified and are expected to continue campaigning fiercely until election day.
You can ask questions of the remaining candidates . They will answer the questions during a League of Women Voters Forum May 3.
