Santa Clara County Supervisor Joe Simitian to run for Congresswoman Anna Eshoo’s open seat
A week after U.S. Rep. Anna Eshoo surprisingly announced her retirement from Congress after more than three decades, Santa Clara County Supervisor Joe Simitian officially has jumped into what could be one of the most competitive congressional races Silicon Valley has seen in years.
In announcing his candidacy for the District 16 seat, Simitian — who has served as supervisor for the northern part of the county and parts of the West Valley since 2012 — said he expects to follow Eshoo’s “tradition” while utilizing his “own practice of prioritizing constituent service.”
“I will advance the values and issues that are the hallmark of our Valley: innovation, inclusion and fairness,” he said.
