You ought to do a little more research into Abe Koga's record. You'll find she's a proxy of the San Jose union bosses who voted for budget-busting labor contracts in Mt. View. When the City began running short of money, she got a utility tax passed and plunged the City into debt. If she wins the Supervisor race, she'll bankrupt the county. Hopefully more qualified candidates will get into this race.
