Current County Council Members

The following current Alameda County Council members were elected on June 5th, 2012, and reconfirmed by consensus at the June 8, 2014 County Council meeting. The confirmation process was held in lieu of re-election, since California’s new “Top Two Primary” law has resulted in political parties being prevented from conducting their governing board elections as part of the public election process during Gubernatorial years.
