COUNTY, CITY AND SCHOOL BOARD CANDIDATES
The San Mateo County Democratic Party (also known as the San Mateo County Democratic Central Committee, or SMC DCC) invites Democrats running for county, city or school district office in San Mateo County to apply for the Democratic Party endorsement.
The endorsement process includes four steps:
1. The timely submission (by the deadline stated on the application, unless extended) of a written application for endorsement (which consists of a completed application form, questionnaire, and resume) via email. The application materials must be submitted as a single pdf file.
2. A mandatory interview by the SMC DCC endorsement committee.
3. Deliberations by the endorsement committee, which makes recommendations to the full SMC DCC.
4. A meeting of the full SMC DCC, which makes all endorsement decisions. An endorsement requires a 60% vote of members (elected and ex officio) present and voting. A list of SMC DCC members is available on the DCC web site.
For more information, or for a copy of the application, please contact SMC DCC endorsement committee at email@example.com
The San Mateo County Democratic Party (also known as the San Mateo County Democratic Central Committee, or SMC DCC) makes the Democratic Party endorsements regarding local (county, city, school, and special district) ballot measures in San Mateo County.

SPECIAL NOTE ON SCHOOL BOND MEASURES
Treasurer Lockyer and Superintendent of Public Instruction Torlakson [link tohttp://www.cde.ca.gov/nr/ne/yr13/yr13rel12.asp] have called for a moratorium on the use of Capital Appreciation Bonds (CABs) by California school districts. The proponents of any school bond measure should therefore inform the SMC DCC of whether their measure would authorize the issuance of CABs.
If the measure would authorize the issuance of CABs then the proponents should provide detailed information regarding the terms, structure and total cost of the any CABs that will be issued, as well as the justification for the District's use of CABs. Such information should be sent to email@example.com.
