One response to “San Mateo County on Twitter

  1. How do I get into contact with city of S.S.F council members?

    I have some inportant issues to speak with them about. If I am
    able to speak with them via the internet it would be a lot easier.
    This is regarding the area that I live in, along with areas in the surrounding neighbor hoods.
