I wholeheartedly endorse Chelsea Bonini for San Mateo City Council!  Chelsea will stand up for what is right, including diversity, tolerance and respect for the rights of working families. I am proud to stand with her.

— David Lim, Mayor of San Mateo

We need Chelsea's insight, skill and voice in our City's leadership as San Mateo tackles the issues of growth, community, and respectful cooperation among interests. — John and Ann Fyfe

I have known Chelsea since I was elected to the School Board for the Belmont-Redwood Shores School District in 2013. She is a very active School Board member, not just focused on her own district, but branching out to meet others, learn from others, and help others through her leadership roles in the San Mateo County School Board Association as well as the California School Board Association. I know she will pour her heart and soul into the City Council to improve the lives of all San Mateo residents and make an impact across the region. — Amy Koo

I have known Chelsea for 7 years as a Cub Scout leader, as an Art in Action volunteer in my child's classroom, and as our school's PTA President. She has been a tireless contributor to the youth in our community. Having seen her in action in committee meetings, I know that she has the skills to work with people to get things done. I think she is an excellent candidate for City Council. — Catherine Apsley

I am very pleased to see Chelsea running for City Council in San Mateo. San Mateo and Foster City have done wonderful projects together and knowing Chelsea's skills, we will certainly see many more. — Charlie Bronitsky, Mayor of Foster City

I endorse Chelsea Bonini for San Mateo City Council as I trust she has the best interest of San Mateo residents in mind. Chelsea is committed and works hard to get things done. I had the pleasure of working with her on our elementary school PTA board of directors. As an Occupational Therapist working with people of all physical challenges, I am confident Chelsea will treat all individuals equally and with the upmost respect. — Julie Averill

Chelsea is a great mom and friend. I got to know her when we were together in San Mateo Mother's Club together and raising our babies. She has incredible energy and is a kind and thoughtful mom. I have followed her candidacy for the School Board with enthusiasm and am thrilled that she is now going to putting her energies towards the City Council. I am sure San Mateo will benefit from her efforts and thoughtfulness. — Saloni Howard-Sarin

I know Chelsea will do a wonderful job. She was my neighbor, PTA president at our kids' school and served as a school board trustee. She knows the San Mateo community well and know she will be an great advocate for our community. — Iliana Petersen

I endorse Chelsea because I know she is an advocate for equality for all families and neighborhoods. I also know she supports and wants to help the Special Needs community. She wants to do what's right not follow an agenda. — Chris Kuka

Chelsea is well informed, intelligent and thoughtful. Her time on the school board has built a solid foundation for civic leadership. I can't imagine a better candidate for city council. — Julie Neale

Over the past 10 years, I have had the opportunity to admire Chelsea Bonini for her business savvy, her unwavering dedication to the community and as an amazing Mother to her two sons. I truly believe Chelsea's exceptional business acumen will contribute in serving on the San Mateo Council. Her leadership and thoughtfulness will be evident in working with other city council members and in applying decision-making for San Mateo. Chelsea is one who can be counted on in time of need as well as celebration. She can help San Mateo grow to become a more vivacious & prosperous city. Chelsea most definitely has my vote come this fall. — Cristina Koukis

Chelsea will make a wonderful council member for San Mateo. She is intelligent, articulate, thoughtful, and kind. I have seen her be an asset to our community as a Cub Scout leader and school board member, I trust in her ability and character to serve our community well. — Sharon Wong

I had the pleasure of working with Chelsea for a literacy event. Her dedication and creativity really impressed me! — Gennie Gorback
