Huijun Ring, one of seven candidates for three seats on Foster City’s City Council, is racking up the endorsements.
One of the first big names was San Mateo County Supervisor Jerry Hill. Now’s she added State Sen. Leland Yee, D-San Francisco/San Mateo, to her growing team of supporters. She’s also snared the endorsements of Assemblyman Gene Mullin, D-San Mateo, and the Sierra Club. (She’ll discuss environmental issues at an event from 10 a.m. to noon on Sunday at Boothbay Park.)
In addition to Ring, the candidates for the council consist of Councilwoman Linda Koelling and Councilman Rick Wykoff, who are running for re-election; Art Kiesel, a member of the city Planning Commission; Marcia Cohn-Lyle, a member of the San Mateo Union High School District’s Board of Trustees; Patrick McKinnie, a group home counselor; and Stanley Roberts, a television journalist for KRON-4.
Of all the challengers, however, Ring has made the most noise so far. And if form holds from the last time we wrote about her, the comments section will soon fill up with glowing recommendations from her friends and supporters.
