Canciamilla, a former Democrat who is now registered without a party preference, will fill out the term of longtime Clerk-Recorder and Registrar of Voters Steve Weir, who is retiring next month.
Bay Area News Group political reporter Lisa Vorderbrueggen has the details:
The board of supervisors unanimously chose Canciamilla over the retiring incumbent's brother and Pleasant Hill Councilman Jack Weir about 90 minutes ago after public interviews with both men. ....
The five supervisors praised Jack Weir's public service and his managerial and data management professional background.
But all said Canciamilla brought to the job a deeper understanding of county government and politics.
