PACE Endorses Starosciak over Mestas and Cutter over Lopez

In the race for San Leandro Mayor, Councilmember Joyce Starosciak secured the endorsement of Political Action Committee for Excellence (PACE) and a $1,000 contribution to Starosciak's campaign.

In the District 5 City Council race, Pauline Cutter received PACE's endorsement, along with a $1,000 campaign contribution.

In other races, PACE endorsed Ellen Corbett ($1,500) for California State Senate, Victoria Kolakowski ($1,000) for Alameda County Superior Court Judge, Elsa Ortiz ($500) for AC Transit Board, Shelia Young for Oro Loma Sanitary District Board, and Stacy Blom and Isabel Polvorosa ($250 each) for San Lorenzo School Board. Young did not request financial support from PACE.

PACE is a local group that supports candidates for political office, much like political action committees. PACE is a group of politically active women that includes Denise Kaplan,, Polvorosa, Catherine Ralph, Starosciak, Ursula Reed, Dale Gregory, Anna Brannan, Harriet Engberg, and Esther Collier. The group typically endorses only women for office, but did endorse some men in the 2002 election.

Of course they are going to endorse Ms. Starosciak, she is on their committee! That doesn't mean she is the best candidate for the job!
