What the Board of Supes race is really all about
Original post made by Hank Lawrence, Menlo Park: Sharon Heights, on Mar 1, 2012
If Ms. Keith wins the Board of Supes race will she have enough to overcome Gail Slocum who will be ready to start her second career as the CD18 Representative for California in twelve years. It will be a race between Keith's moderation and Slocum's political prowess. Who will win? We won't know until Eshoo decides to retire and she is under no pressure to do so.
If Keith wins the Board of Supes race and Eshoo waits longer than twelve years to retire then the smart money would have to be on Slocum. If Keith wins the Board of Supes race and Eshoo retires in 12 years or less then it should be a very spirited contest betweeen two extremely politically ambitious women.
