Approximately 40 people attended the March meeting of the Coastside Democratic Club to hear “An Inside Look at the Coastal Commission.” San Mateo County Supervisor and Coastal Commission member Carole Groom provided her perspective on the recent firing of Commission Executive Director Eric Lester and on the future of the Commission. She supports recent legislation introduced by Assembly Speaker Toni Atkins to require all consultants who regularly represent clients before the Commission to register as lobbyists.

Central Committee Member Mitchell Oster spoke in favor of Measure AA for a Clean and Healthy Bay. He stated that “this important measure is on the ballot in all 9 Bay Area counties for this June 7th Presidential Primary election and will raise funds for improving water quality, increasing fish and wildlife habitat, and protecting shoreline communities.”
Three club members are candidates in June for the County Democratic Central Committee: Sabrina Brennan, Brigid O’Farrell, and Kathryn Slater-Carter. Pictured below are Sabrina Brennan and Kathryn Slater-Carter with Mitch Oster.
