A preview of what LinkedIn members have to say about Isaac:

  • While working with Strack as part of a "start-up" design/techology team at Adobe, I was highly impressed with his technical expertise, ability to articulate solutions to the less tech-savvy, and consistently positive attitude. He's always up for a challenge and pushes everyone around him to think more, question more, innovate more. He's a great collaborator, teacher, and friend, and a tremendous asset to any team.
  • Isaac is a driving force at Adobe. Besides his normal duties he volunteers his time for a number of community initiatives. He is very committed to education and works relentlessly to make sure those inside and outside the company receive the information and education they need to be effective. In addition to training our customers, Isaac goes the extra mile and takes time to train those inside the company on our own products. In addition to work related training, Isaac volunteers with a number of outside groups such as STEM / STEAM, FIRST robotics, and WIT to share technology education to the community. Isaac is always willing to donate his time, talents, and energies to share his knowledge with others. I've worked with Isaac on a number of initiatives. He is well organized and detail oriented. He knows how to effectively share leadership while still making sure everything gets done and everyone has fun. Working with Isaac is a blast.

On Tuesday, Joe Canciamilla, Contra Costa County Clerk-Recorder, confirmed he has resigned from his position as county clerk-recorder and Thursday will be his last day.
Canciamilla said Tuesday that he thought it was a good time to retire and is leaving the County in good hands.
“The office is running well and I believe, for a number of reasons that now is a good time to move on.  It has been a real honor to lead this department and I know that I am leaving it in good hands.  After being in public service for most of my life I am looking forward to what comes next,” said Canciamilla in an email.
Contra Costa County Supervisor John Gioia, who served with Canciamilla on the Board of Superivsors, said will be missed.
“Joe has provided a lifetime of dedicated public service to our county’s residents – as a school board member, city councilmember, county supervisor, state legislator and county clerk. He will be missed,” said Gioia.
Supervisor Karen Mitchoff called him a great public servant.
“Joe has been a great public servant. I am sorry to see him leave county service but understand his desire to pursue other personal interest and I wish him well,” said Mitchoff.
Supervisor Diane Burgis thanked Canciamilla for his service.
“I wish Joe the best after a lifetime of public service and thank him for all he has done for our Contra Costa County. He will be missed,” said Burgis.
Canciamilla was first elected to public office at the age of 17 when he earned a seat on the Pittsburg Board of Education where he served 4-terms before moving onto the Pittsburg City Council.  By 1996, he was elected to the Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors and served in the California State Assembly.
Canciamilla became Contra Costa County Clerk-Recorder after succeeding Steve Weir in 2013. He then won election in 2014 and 2018.
The County Board of Supervisors will get to decide how to fill the County-Clerk position either through a special election or an appointment process at a future meeting.
Back in April, we had Joe Canciamilla on our podcast.
We chatted about how Conditional Voter Registration works, possibly going to 100% vote by mail, upcoming primary next March, what election night is like for him. Finally, we get into the need for the public to get educated on candidates/issues and demand more transparency from government rather than accept mediocrity.
