The Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors held a swearing-in ceremony for Supervisor John Gioia as Board Chair and Supervisor Federal Glover as Vice Chair at its January 10, 2023, Board meeting.
At today’s Board of Supervisors meeting, Superior Court Judge Joni T. Hiramoto administered the oath of office to Supervisor John Gioia for his seventh term as a County Supervisor.
District 1 Supervisor John Gioia represents Richmond, San Pablo, El Cerrito, Pinole, Kensington, El Sobrante, North Richmond, Rollingwood, Montalvin Manor, and Tara Hills.
John was first elected to the Board of Supervisors in 1998 and was re-elected last year with 85% of the vote (the highest vote percentage of any Supervisor in California who faced an opponent). He is currently the third longest serving Supervisor in California. He will be tied as Contra Costa’s second longest serving County Supervisor at the end of his current term of office. He served five previous terms as Board Chair and took the leadership role from outgoing Chair Karen Mitchoff, who retired at the end of her term.
