The campaign to re-elect Eric Mar to the office of District 1 Supervisor released a short statement Friday to announce Mr. Mar and his wife, Sandra Chin-Mar, are “finalizing the end of their 25-year marriage.”
“Despite their separation, Eric and Sandra will share joint custody of their 12-year old daughter, Jade. Thank you for respecting the privacy of Supervisor Mar and his family during this time,” the statement added.
The statement was released to douse a whisper campaign being waged against the incumbent by a campaign opponent, a reliable source said.
