Welcome to my Senate website. I hope it serves as a useful resource if you have a question, need assistance, or simply want to stay informed. Please don't hesitate to contact my office if I can be of service.
Updates from Joe
It has been my pleasure to represent California’s 11th State Senate District for the last eight years in Sacramento. On November 30, 2012, however, I left the State Senate due to term limits.
I was sworn in as a Santa Clara County Supervisor on January 7, 2013, representing many of the same constituents I served for the past 12 years in the Senate and Assembly. My new County website is SupervisorSimitian.com, and my new office phone number is (408) 299-5050.
Thank you, and do stay in touch.
P.S. We’ve maintained our State Senate website as a resource for those interested in the work I’ve done while serving in the Legislature.
