Jim Beall made an official announcement social media-style Thursday, telling all of his Facebook friends that he will, in fact, be running for the state Senate’s 15th District seat.
“Friends—my candidacy for the 15th Senate District is official!” Beall wrote. “I look forward to continuing my work of fighting for middle class families, securing resources for our community, and advocating for those without a voice as your State Senator.”
Beall will host a campaign kick-off canvassing event Sunday.
Name a local office and Beall has probably held it as some point his career. In addition to previously serving in the State Assembly, Beall is a former county supervisor, San Jose city council member and a planning commissioner.
