New face in South City

Incumbent Rich Garbarino and newcomer Kevin Mullin came away with two open seats on the South San Francisco City Council on Tuesday night.

For a city attempting to grow as a leader in business and a destination for residents and teachers, the next four years present a critical period of growth.

Current mayor Garbarino earned his second term on the dais, while newcomer Mullin, multimedia producer and son of former mayor of South San Francisco and Assemblyman Gene Mullin, earned the coveted second spot. Both beat out first-time candidate Kamala Cynthia Silva Wolfe.

Garbarino and Mullin both said they’d like to see ferry service come into the city.

An initiative for ferry service is supported heavily by businesses east of U.S. Highway 101 whose employees would use it to commute between the East Bay and the Peninsula.

Both said they would like to see a ferry terminal built within city limits.
