Simitian, who began his political career as a member of the Palo Alto Board of Education in the 1980s, regularly holds public updates that draw school board members, administrators and public-education advocates from Santa Cruz to San Carlos.
A member of the state Senate since 2004, Simitian sits on its Education Committee. He also chairs the Senate's Environmental Quality Committee and is a member of the committees on budget, energy, utilities and communications, natural resources and water, and transportation and housing.
Because of term limits, he is serving his final term in the Senate and has announced he will seek a seat on the Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors in November.
