Supervisor Mark Church violated oath to serve as Supervisor for four years. He ran for another elected office and won. After winning new job he refused to resign as Supervisor after multiple requests, causing the need for a special election to fill his seat. The cost of that special election is reported to be $1.1 million. This is Mark Church's way of "leading by example".
Newspapers are misreporting this story, claiming it is the voter's fault for electing him to his new position. They are also misreporting that the Supervisors are saving $500,000 by having a special mail-in election. What I want to know is why he was running for a new position in the first place? Could it be that the new position would double his salary?
I spoke at the board of Supervisors meeting asking Mark Church to resign his position, that his vacancy be voted on by election on the next ballot in order to save San Mateo County $1.1 million. Mark Church refused to do so. Here is the link to the meeting and I speak at 5:20 rtsp://realserver.co.sanmateo.ca.us/Archive/bos/2010/Agenda_20100629.rm
