District 4 Race Gets Two Challengers

On February 21, 2008, Paul Gonzales pulled papers to run for the District 4 City Council seat currently held by Joyce Starosciak. The following day, perennial candidate Lou Filipovich also pulled papers for the District 4 seat. Filipovich has been a candidate for this seat in every election since 1992 and also runs for Mayor, the San Lorenzo School, the Oro Loma Sanitary District, and even the California State Senate. In 2006, Filipovich edged out Laura Riffle to become the Republican nominee for the California State Senate, which he lost to former San Leandro Mayor Ellen Corbett.

Starociak was elected in 2005 after a run-off with Mike Mahoney and is running for re-election.

The filing period for candidates ends on March 7, 2008.
