Belmont Mayor Charles Stone this week announced a growing list of endorsements in his bid for District 2 County Supervisor in San Mateo County—a seat that opens in 2022 due to term limits.
Along with California State Treasurer Fiona Ma, Stone has received recent endorsements from San Mateo Mayor Eric Rodriguez, President of the San Mateo-Foster City School District Board Kenneth Chin and former Belmont Chamber of Commerce President Mary Parden.
A county native and a graduate of Hillsdale High School in San Mateo, Mayor Stone is the parent of two daughters in local public schools and serves as board chair of the San Mateo County Transit District (SamTrans). He is also an active school library, classroom and foundation volunteer, as well as a youth sports coach.
“As County Supervisor, I’ll continue to champion healthy, safe communities where every senior gets vaccines, medications, and care when they need it; affordable housing for our workforce and future generations; and a functioning public transit system that reduces congestion and provides efficient mobility options,” said Stone.
In endorsing Stone, Chin championed him as one who would “bring a much-needed parent perspective to the Board of Supervisors.”
Rodriguez pointed to Stone being “the best representative for San Mateo’s interests locally and regionally,” while Parden touted his ability to “lead the fight to provide the support we need as our local businesses and families recover from the fiscal and health impacts of COVID.”
