Fix Our Harbors

San Mateo County Harbor District

The Half Moon Bay fishing, boating and surfing community would like facilities modernized at Pillar Point Harbor. It's time to fix crumbling infurtructure, chronic water pollution, dangerous working conditions on Johnson Pier, unsafe docks, inadequate public restrooms, outdated visitor serving facilities, poor wifi connectivity and compromised trail access.

Robert Bernardo's predilection for “fake news” and his eagerness to kiss the ring of Republicans Virginia Chang Kiraly and Jim Tucker has enabled cronyism to flourish at the San Mateo County Harbor District.


2014 Final Election Results

Robert Bernardo held onto his seat by a razor-thin margin of 205 votes.


Bernardo squeaked by fellow Commissioner Jim Tucker by 292 votes in the final, semiofficial tally of the San Mateo County Elections Office. Elections officials finished counting mail and provisional ballots from the Nov. 4 election late Tuesday afternoon.
Bernardo trailed Tucker by several hundred votes the night of the election. He conceded defeat that week, despite there being more than 20,000 ballots yet to be counted, thanking voters for "an amazing four years."
"We gave it our best and we fell short," Bernardo said Nov. 7. "It's very difficult mathematically to overcome something like that."
But the commissioner took the lead over Tucker last week as the updated tallies trickled out. The final count gave him 48,340 votes to Tucker's 48,048. Bernardo's comeback is now complete, though it won't be official until the county certifies the results of the election next month.

Is Robert Bernardo a blessing or a burden?

The January 2011 swearing-in of San Mateo County Harbor Commissioner Robert Bernardo was a happy event.


Fall From Grace 

At Harbor Commission meetings Bernardo lacks knowledge about critical issues, demonstrates unwillingness to consider stakeholder input, and rubber stamps staff recommendations which result in poor harbor management and wasteful spending.

On June 4, 2014 Robert Bernardo voted to give Peter Grenell, the District's general manager a contract extension and raise.
