Mitzelfelt Contemplating Comeback

Former County First District Supervisor Brad Mitzelfelt has taken a step toward reinitiating his political career. Appointed to succeed former supervisor Bill Postmus in 2007 when Postmus left to become assessor, Mitzelfelt ran successfully to retain the supervisorial post in 2008. He fell short, though, in his 2012 bid to be elected congressman in California’s 8th Congressional District.
Mitzelfelt had $226,210 remaining in his supervisorial electioneering fund. Last week he transferred it into an account designated Brad Mitzelfelt for Assembly.
The move sets him into position to vie for the position in California’s lower legislative house now held by Tim Donnelly. Donnelly is eligible to run for Assembly again in 2014, but  is now contemplating a run for governor next year.
Mitzelfelt was Postmus’s chief of staff during the four years the latter was supervisor.
