For Redwood Ct Councl, RSCA Endorses:
* Jeff Gee
Council Member & Vice-Mayor
* John Sebert
Council Member
* Dane Howard
former Council Member
After meeting and listening to all six Candidates atthe Shores forum on September 4th, the Board ofRSCA has endorsed and strongly encouragesRedwood Shores voters to elect these three can-didates to the three open seats on the RedwoodCity Council.Experience is especially important as the Cityfaces both budgetary and quality-of-service chal-lenges.We feel that the current Council and City govern-ment are working and committed to serving all oftheir communities, so we see every reason to re-elect the two incumbent Council Members. Wealso feel that Ms. Howard’s previous Councilexperience will benefit the City over the next fouryears.
For the Belmont-Redwood Shores Dstrct Board of Trustees & Parcel Ta Measure R:
RSCA decided to consider endorsements of candidates for the Belmont Redwood Shores School Districtand to decide a position on Measure R (the new parcel tax) ONLY after we had heard from all seven can-didates on September 23rd. (he Belmont-Redwood Shores PTA Council and RSCA co-sponsored a forumthat Monday evening to allow the public to meet and hear all seven candidates address District issues andconcerns at one time.We will send an email mid-October on any endorsements we decide, or you can look for our endorsementsin the November PILOT.

Presdent’s Memo for September 2013
by Harris Rogers
Be a Voter! 
Shores residents are among the most civic-mindedpeople in this local area. Being a voter is one of themost basic ways each of us exercise our most funda-mental right to express our opinions about our localgovernance.Being a voter also increases the importance of theShores with local officials. They look closely at howmany of those eligible actually vote, and the higher that percentage the more influence we can have as acommunity.We estimate that there are almost 8,000 potential vot-ers in the Shores. The San Mateo County Clerkshows about 6,500 registered voters.In 2011, just
votes earned a seat on the CityCouncil.In 2009 when two of this November’s candidates werefirst elected, it required
only 3,724
votes to earn a seaton the City Council.In both of those elections the top vote getter onlyreceived just over 5,000 votes.In 2007 and the last contested election to the Belmont-Redwood Shores School Board of Trustees, the sec-ond Trustee was elected with
only 3,429
votes.With 8,000 potential voters and over 6,500 alreadyregistered in the Shores, we CAN have an impact onthese elections, but ONLY if we show up and VOTE!If you at least 18 years old and a U.S. citizen, pleasemake sure that you are registeredto vote! If youhaven’t yet registered or need more information, go to
where you can register on-line and find information about the candidates andissues that will be on the November ballot. Also make the decision now whether you plan to voteby mail or go to the polls on election day, November 5th. If you are not already signed up for “Vote by Mail”,you can do that at the same web site, too.Whatever your opinions or politics, and whether youagree with our endorsements or not, this promises tobe an important local election, both for our RedwoodCity Council and for the Belmont-Redwood ShoresSchool District. You need to be part of it, so…
We Mourn the Loss of Pete Hughes
Just as I was finishing this month’s column, we weresaddened to learn that long-time Shores resident PeteHughes had passed away.Pete was a member of the RSCA Board for over 15years and was a valued asset to this community.If you enjoy walking or exercising on our levees, youhave Pete Hughes to thank. Over 15 years ago Peteconceived the idea, arranged corporate sponsorship,worked with the City, and almost single-handedly man-aged RSCA’s first Levee Clean Up. The Levee CleanUp, where scores of community volunteers pick uptrash all along our levees and in many public areas,was always “Pete’s project” and quickly became anannual Shores event.Pete was also responsible for making RSCA’s AnnualMeeting an important forum where our communitycould get information from and question local officialsabout issues – like the levee crisis – that specificallyaffected Redwood Shores.Pete served our children and taxpayers as member of the Redwood Shores General Improvement District(GID) I-64 Committee, as a volunteer on New ShoresSchool Advisory Committee, and as a member of theMeasure C Bond Oversight Committee.
(Measure C  provided the funds that were required to build our new Redwood Shores Elementary School.)
Pete’s civic devotion and commitment to the commu-nity was truly exceptional. He was active with theRedwood City Police Activities League, the PeninsulaCelebration Association, and Casa de RedwoodSenior Housing. Pete and his wife Ginny both servedon the Board and were strong supporters of theKainos Home and Training Center for developmental-ly challenged adults.What was most extraordinary about Pete Hughes isthat, due to his level of involvement, service to thecommunity, and credibility in both Redwood Shoresand Redwood City, you could mention “Pete,” andeveryone would know that you were referring to PeteHughes. He impacted so much, and his influence waspervasive.Pete’s friendship and inspiration will be missed. RSCAsuggests that expressions of sympathy be made as adonation to Kainos, and you can find their informationat
