A tight race to represent San Mateo County’s District 2 appears to have come to an end with Noelia Corzo becoming the first Latina official to sit on the Board of Supervisors and her opponent, Councilmember Charles Stone, conceding.

“My election is a historic win, as the first Latina supervisor-elect and only woman that will serve on the dais for the next two years, it is a day for celebration. Our campaign reflected and celebrated our diverse community and the contributions that come from that diversity. That message resonated with a majority of District 2 voters,” Corzo said in a statement Thursday. “This is significant for the Latino community. We can now see ourselves reflected in the leadership — that someone that sounds like us, looks like us, lives like us, will now represent them. And, it’s significant for all communities because we’re all interconnected.”
