Contra Costa County Supervisor Federal Glover just put out a press release thanking voters for re-electing him to a fifth term.
“All the work positioning myself in regional policy-making bodies and building relationships are paying paying off,” he said in the statement. “The people see the results of that work.”
All that may well be true.
But his supporters also warned off all potential challengers including Martinez Councilman Mike Menesini, who backed out on the last day to file.
Supervisor Mary Nejedly Piepho, of Discovery Bay, also ran unopposed. She was re-elected to a third term.

Supervisor Glover’s Statement Upon Re-election
Tuesday, June 5, 2012
By Supervisor Federal D. Glover
After 17 years as an elected official, I feeI I have the voters’ respect for the work I’ve been doing.
All the work positioning myself in regional policy-making bodies and building relationships are paying off. The people see the results of that work.
I want to thank the voters for allowing me to be their supervisor for the next four years. I am excited to be reelected to my fourth term as the county supervisor for District V.
What I love at this level of government is that I am still in close contact with my constituents and I get to know many of them on a one-on-one basis. I get to know their concerns and their communities.
As the economy improves and we move out of this slump, the next four years should be a fruitful one for District V. I plan to continue building and strengthening the necessary infrastructure for the social, housing, transportation and healthcare needs of my district and Contra Costa County.
