City Hall reporter Scott Smith reported today that Councilwoman Kathy Miller is exploring a run for the District 2 seat on the San Joaquin County Board of Supervisors.
Former council members do often run for the board. The seat is currently held by Supervisor Larry Ruhstaller, himself a former City Council member, elected in 1996 and 2000. Supervisor Steve Bestolarides was elected to the District 3 seat of the Board of Supervisors midway through his second term on the council. He replaced another former council member, Victor Mow. Current Supervisor Bob Elliott was elected to Tracy City Council in 2010 before running for supervisor last year.
Ruhstaller and board Chairman Ken Vogel both term out in two years. Attorney Doug Goss has said he planned to run for Vogel’s seat. He represents District 4, which includes Lodi and much of the county’s rural area.
