    Friday Jun 26 | San Mateo Daily Journal

    The issue of overcrowded schools in Foster City remains paramount to quality of place and quality of life our families demand. The significance of this issue cannot be understated and it is my opinion that the unwillingness of school Superintendent Cynthia Simms and current board President Audrey Ng to meet with the Foster City Council to discuss our residents' issues in details to fully understand and better be able to address this issue has continued to fracture the already tenuous relationship.

    Monday Jun 8 | San Mateo Daily Journal

    Strong tax revenue paired with a rebounding economy has San Mateo city officials pleased but conservatively optimistic with the proposed budget for the coming fiscal year as aging infrastructure demands millions of dollars worth of investment.

    May 29, 2015 | San Mateo Daily Journal

    As the San Mateo-Foster City Elementary School District considers how to address the demand for a neighborhood school that will serve the North Central community in San Mateo, it is unlikely officials will consider displacing the Mandarin immersion program housed at College Park Elementary School. Instead, a group of officials charged with inspecting how best to serve a student population that is growing and shifting in demographics will likely suggest establishing a small neighborhood school on the College Park campus, and sharing the site with the popular and successful Mandarin school currently in place, said Superintendent Cynthia Simms.

    I was deeply disappointed to learn that the city of San Mateo will begin charging for the two parking lots at the Fifth Avenue and Claremont Street where Kinko's used to be and the Worker Resource Center is now. Those lots were purchased more than 15 years ago for $5 million with redevelopment money so there could be parking while the Main Street Parking Garage was demolished and rebuilt as part of the downtown cinema project.
