What's happening in Piedmont, CA

We may yet have contested elections!

Posted by drewbendon on December 6, 2007

Three have pulled papers for 2 seats on the City Council: Ryan Gilbert, Margaret Fujioka and incumbent Dean Barbieri. And five have pulled papers for 3 seats on the School Board: Sarah Pearson, Richard Raushenbush, Nancy McHugh, Martha Jones and incumbent June Monach. (I apologize if I’ve misspelled any names)

Lets hope they all run. If they ask, please sign their petitions, though I am told that you can only sign a petition for 1 candidate for the School Board and 1 for City Council. Somebody let me know if that is false.

For anyone else considering throwing their hat in the ring, the deadline to file is December 7, 2007 for City Council and December 12, 2007 for the School Board. There are papers to fill out and signatures to obtain, so now’s the time! Details and forms can be obtained by calling the City Clerk (Ann Swift) at 510-420-3040 or by visiting City Hall.
