Another lifetime "career" politician whose only skill is to move from one public office to another only after being termed out of office. He and other politicians like Liz Kniss simply have no motivation or necessary skills to join the private sector job market and continue to live off taxpayer hard earned money. What a pity!

Those who can, do. Those who can't, run for public office.

The private sector expects results!

I am sure joe will author much nanny state legislation-- that is his area of expertise. He knows what is best for us. Maybe he can get together with the local environmental lobby to craft a series of laws telling what we can and cannot use and what wee can and cannot not do. After all palo a lot is a leader in the field

When Joe was running 'the first time' for Sacramento office - the Assembly - at the time he was on the Santa Clara Board of Supervisors, and he proudly listed that he was on the Executive Board of ABAG. It was on election information. Just "Goggle it" and him Watch him closely.
