Beach, Canepa, Mattammal, Mullin running for Congress

Assembly Speaker pro Tem Kevin Mullin is the latest to announce his intention to run for the 14th congressional district seat being vacated by U.S. Rep. Jackie Speier, doing so in a video announcement Tuesday following Burlingame Councilmember Emily Beach’s social media announcement Monday and County Supervisor David Canepa’s press conference Saturday.

Gus Mattammal, a Republican from the coast, has also announced his intention to run for the seat. Mattammal said he hopes to build better access to education, health care and business in the district.

Not one of these people have succeeded, and many never have even tried, to protect people who rent from the devastating increases in the cost of housing. We need a bold leader to follow in Speier's footsteps and none of these candidates come even close. Loads of personal ambition, but little to no effective results.

HFAB – I’ll take your word on the credentials, or lack thereof, of the folks in the article but if they are as you say, who would you recommend? Are there any qualified candidates?


It's still early.


Give Canepa credit for saving Seton Hospital. Also his work at the History Museum.
