ANNOUNCEMENTS  &  NEWS

From Supervisor Dave Cortese...

Do you wish you could follow county happenings from your own home?

I am pleased to announce that many of the Board of Supervisors meetings and Board Committee meetings will be broadcast for home viewing. A selection of both current and previously recorded meetings can be seen on local cable stations. For more information on the availability of these meetings in your area, please visit the Santa Clara County website or call our office at 299-5030. The meetings can also be viewed online at www.sccgov.org.

Do you know of any youth who want to make a difference in their community? 
Santa Clara County is looking for a group of youth to participate in the County’s Youth Task Force. The Youth Task Force advises the Board on issues that impact youth. This is a great opportunity for youth in our community to actively participate in government and make an impact on governmental decisions. Members of the Youth Task Force gain leadership experience, develop skills in working with people, and influence the lives of the teens in Santa Clara County. For more information on the Youth Task Force, or if you know of someone who would be interested in joining the Youth Task Force, please contact Tiffany Lee in my office at 299-5030 or tiffany.lee@bos.sccgov.org.

Looking for a great date night? 
The Tech Museum has a new monthly themed event for adults 21 and over. This after-hours event is a great opportunity to enjoy science, technology, and entertainment with friends. With a new theme each month, this is great way to keep learning and expanding your mind. For more information on this, and other Tech Museum programs, please visit their website.

Would you, or do you know someone who would, like to advise the Board of Supervisors?
There are a number of openings on Santa Clara County’s Boards and Commissions.  Members of these boards and commissions advise the Board of Supervisors about issues and concerns that they see or hear about in the community.  I thought that you, or someone you know, might be interested applying for any one of the open positions. There are many Boards and Commissions to choose from.  I have listed a few examples below to show the variety of areas covered by our boards and commissions:

  • Consumer Affairs;
  • National Guard and Veterans Affairs;
  • Senior Care; and more.

If you would like more information about serving on a Board or Commission or would like to see the list of opening we have available, please visit my website or contact Michelle Osorio in my office by e-mail at michelle.osorio@bos.sccgov.org or by phone at 408-299-5030.
