San Mateo gets help to tackle budget 

Incumbent Brandt Grotte and newcomers David Lim and Robert Ross have won San Mateo’s City Council election.

There were five candidates battling for the three open seats on the five-person council.

Grotte has held his seat since 2005. Incumbent Frederick Arn Hansson — who was appointed by the other members in January after former councilwoman Carole Groom was appointed to the Board of Supervisors — did not retain his seat.

It was guaranteed that at least one newcomer would join the council since Councilwoman Jan Epstein was termed out of office.

Lim is a deputy district attorney; Ross is a retired police lieutenant. Challenger Bertha Hall Sanchez, a nurse, did not garner enough votes to win.
