Will McCarthy


Endorsements and donations have started to flow in the race to fill Keith Carson’s 5th district seat on the Alameda County Board of Supervisors. And although there is no current polling in the nine-candidate field, former Emeryville mayor John Bauters appears to be off to a hot start.

In the weeks since Carson’s surprise retirement, Bauters campaign has reported raising over $100,000, and has earned the backing of dozens of local elected officials in the East Bay. That broad support includes the mayors of Albany, Alameda, Hayward, Livermore, Piedmont, Pleasanton, and Dublin, as well as more than half of Berkeley’s city council.
