Vargas, Horsley to square off for Peninsula supervisor

Two of San Mateo County’s election races from Tuesday will not be decided until November.

None of the five candidates in the District 3 county supervisor race received a majority of the vote, forcing a runoff between the top two vote-getters, business owner April Vargas and retired Sheriff Don Horsley, in November.

The Examiner erroneously reported in Wednesday’s edition that Horsley won the seat in Tuesday’s election. The county requires that a candidate receive 50 percent plus one of the vote. Horsley received 38.6 percent of the vote, while Vargas was next with 24.2 percent.

The two will continue their battle to represent District 3, which includes the incorporated areas of Atherton, Redwood Shores, Half Moon Bay and Portola Valley, along with many unincorporated portions of the county such as El Granada, Pescadero and Moss Beach.

In addition to the District 3 runoff, the county’s tax collector-treasurer also will be decided in November.

According to results, Deputy Tax Collector-Treasurer Sandie Arnott will face Dave Mandelkern, a trustee for the San Mateo County Community College District. Arnott received 38.43 percent of the vote and Mandelkern notched 27.84 percent.

The runoffs will be held Nov. 2.
