"I support Anders, because he delivers results—as a businessman and volunteer. Anders will be an asset on city council. He has what it takes to help Millbrae reach its potential by using what makes our town great—fantastic public safety, a small-town feel, and excellent education," Millbrae City Council Member and Former Mayor Anne Oliva said.
