Change of the guard in Millbrae

Retired businesswoman Marge Colapietro, handyman and former Councilmember Daniel Quigg and Parks and Recreation Commissioner Paul Seto were the frontrunners late Tuesday night for three open City Council seats vacated by termed-out, longtime incumbents Marc Hershman, Linda T. Larson and Nadia Holober.

Quigg served as council member for 12 years from 1993 to 2005; before that, he was city treasurer for 13 years beginning in 1980.

“I think it’s a great opportunity to come back,” Quigg said. “Three experienced people are termed out and a lot of people asked me to run, so here I am.”

A downtown parking garage, more shared fire services and the Site One development — a massive project planned around the Millbrae/Caltrain station — are considered the biggest issues facing the city.

The size of the parking garage will be another big-ticket issue, since businesses and residents say there is a lack of parking, while residents near downtown do not want a view of the city parking lot.

The city’s annual $1.4 million fire assessment, a tax on residents to fund fire services, expires in 2009. The best method to ensure continued fire services at the same level, candidates have said, will be a partnership with the Central County Fire Department. That possibility is being explored by all agencies involved.
