Joe Simitian begins his second stint as a Santa Clara County supervisor on Monday, with a swearing in to the position he last held in 2000.
Simitian, who was termed out of the state Senate, takes the District 5 seat of Liz Kniss, who, herself was termed out as supervisor, and elected to the Palo Alto City Council.
Simitian was elected to the county Board of Supervisors during the June 2012 election, easily besting his two other competitors to win the seat outright, without requiring a runoff in the November general election.
He will be representing many of the same constituents he served in the past 12 years in the state Senate and Assembly.
According to Simitian's old state Senate website, his new county website will be available starting in January at www.SupervisorSimitian.com. Constituents wishing to reach the supervisor can do so beginning on Monday at his new office at either (408) 299-5050 or (650) 965-8737.
Before then, the public can contact Simitian at firstname.lastname@example.org.
