Furst Gathers Key Endorsements

Corte Madera Vice-Mayor picks up support from the Sierra Club and the Marin Democratic Party as she builds momentum for her run at the Board of Supervisors.

Diane Furst seems to be constantly on the go these days, and she's picking up some momentum for her election campaign to the Marin County Board of Supervisors.

The Corte Madera Vice-Mayor, who also serves on the Transportation Authority of Marin Executive Committee among various other boards, recently picked up endorsements from the Sierra Club and the Marin Democratic Party.

Furst was scheduled to appear in Point Reyes on Thursday morning during a meet-and-greet with residents to drum up support for her campaign for the District 4 seat, which represents Corte Madera, West Marin, Homestead Valley and portions of Novato.

She's hosting a fundraiser at her home in Corte Madera on Sunday at 3 p.m. Furst has stated in her newsletter that her goal is to raise $40,000 by the end of April. Furst will stop in Olema on April 29 at 2 p.m. for another fundraiser.

Furst is taking on incumbent Steve Kinsey, a veteran of more than 15 years on the Board of Supervisors.

Good Luck Diane! It will be good to have a Supervisor who works with her constituency, listens and practices transparency.

I agree, although I see that: Steve Kinsey works with constituents - wink, wink, nod, nod - especially a powerful few. He listens, and listens, and listens, then champions special interest development -- Substantive concerns are drowned in fuzzy, feel-good, 'sustainable' slogans. This pattern has become quite transparent to anyone still paying attention. I support Diane for her gumption and asture aversion to 'Sweetheart Dealers'. VoteLocalFURST
