David receives endorsement of Democrats, Realtors, and Police Officers

Councilmember David Lim picked up the endorsements of the San Mateo County Democratic Party, the San Mateo County Association of Realtors (SAMCAR), and the San Mateo Police Officer’s Association in a flurry of activity that positions David’s campaign with the broadest level of support in the community among all candidates for San Mateo City Council.


The San Mateo Police Officer’s Association announced their endorsement of David early in the day.  In a formal announcement, the Police Officer’s Association noted, “The dedication and high level of service you have demonstrated during your first term on the City Council is recognized and appreciated by members of our association.” 

David noted, “I am honored to have the support of the police officers who keep our City safe, and look forward to working with them to keep public safety a top priority.”

Later in the evening, David received the endorsement of the San Mateo County Association of Realtors (SAMCAR).  David stated, “I am thrilled that the working professionals who make up SAMCAR have honored me with their endorsement.  I am excited to continue working with SAMCAR membership to maintain a robust housing market and create a thriving economy.” 

Finally, minutes after SAMCAR announced their support, David received the endorsement of the San Mateo County Democratic Party.  “The City of San Mateo has strong Democratic roots, and I am proud to have the endorsement of Democrats throughout the City of San Mateo.”   

The diverse nature of the organizations who endorse David highlights the broad support for David’s re-election campaign within the community.  “These three groups represent a variety of viewpoints throughout our City.  I will continue to be accessible and accountable to everyone in our community, and am humbled to have the support of a broad cross-section of our City.”

It was a beautiful day, with great music, great crowds, and great chili!

Official Nomination Papers Filed Today!

Today I formally filed my paperwork with the San Mateo City Clerk to officially begin my bid for re-election to the San Mateo City Council.

While this is the "official" start of my campaign, I have been honored to already receive numerous endorsements from a diverse cross-section of the community.  In the first six months of 2013, I've raised almost $7,000 for my re-election campaign, most of any candidate so far.
