Brennan rises to the top of the challenger pool. She is smart, well-researched and knowledgeable on district issues and brings a unique perspective as a young resident of Moss Beach.

Brennan is quick with new ideas…her fiscal conservatism is refreshing from someone so focused on environmental stewardship.
— San Mateo Daily Journal
We were impressed with your knowledge on a range of issues and your obvious passion for serving the public. Your extensive environmental record and many years of service to the community show us you are the kind of candidate we can be proud to endorse.
