Technically did County Supervisor candidate Carlos Romero say he completed degrees? He implied he did. Wonder what Romero stated on his resume to the EPA when he was hired there?
"San Mateo County supervisor candidate Carlos Romero said Thursday he had "no intent to mislead" anyone in 2008 when he claimed to hold degrees from Stanford and Harvard universities during a candidate forum in the East Palo Alto City Council race. Romero, who won a seat on the council in that race, attended both universities but did not receive degrees from either.
.... And in biographical information submitted to the online site SmartVoter.org, Romero says he "finished" his undergraduate studies at Stanford in 1982.
.... "My undergraduate experience studying development economics, finance, and international politics gave significance to my work in EPA," Romero wrote. "By the time I finished Stanford in 1982, it was apparent that EPA would become home, having moved there my final year at Stanford." Read Article.
