Three council member seats to fill in Moraga; four candidates running

With just over two months until the Nov. 8 elections, the town of Moraga will need to fill three council member positions: one two-year term (continuing the seat prematurely vacated by former member David Stromberg) and two new four-year terms.
Two of the eligible incumbents did not file papers, so the nomination period was extended from Aug. 12 until 5 p.m. Aug. 17.
In no particular order, Moraga's candidates looking to fill the single two-year term seat are David Shapiro (attorney) and Kendall Langan (self-employed businessman). Also in no particular order, the candidates running to fill the two four-year term seats are Kerry Hillis (government relations/business owner) and Steve Woehleke (town council member).
According to Shapiro's Candidate Statement, he has been a Moraga resident for 26 years. He has been a practicing lawyer for over 40 years with a background in government service and private practice with experience in running the United States Attorney's Office in San Francisco and the Oakland office of a major national litigation firm.

He currently runs a food industry business and owns/operates commercial real estate in town.
The Candidate Statement for Kerry Hillis reports that he has been a Moraga resident for nearly six years and is currently chair of the town's Planning Commission. Hillis has also served as a vice president of the Moraga Community Foundation. Professionally, he is a transportation policy administrator, currently working as a government relations manager with BART; and a co-owner/Chief Strategy Officer of an E-commerce business.
