Anna Eshoo to seek another term

U.S. Rep. Anna Eshoo, a Democrat who has been representing Menlo Park, Atherton, Portola Valley, Woodside and other cities in the 18th Congressional District for nearly two decades, announced Monday, Aug. 29, her plans to seek another term.

Rep. Eshoo, 68, a Menlo Park resident who was first elected to Congress in 1992, declared her intention to seek re-election in the recently redrawn 18th District.

"While the redistricting process shifted some cities out of the district that I have represented for decades and added new ones, my work has always had its roots in our regional strengths and needs, and those will not change," she said

Her new district continues to include Menlo Park, Atherton, Woodside, Portola Valley, and other cities between Redwood City and San Jose. It also now includes Los Gatos, Campbell and several neighborhoods in San Jose.
