Santa Clara Co. supes meet to discuss vacant seat
SAN JOSE, Calif. (KGO) -- The Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors is meeting Tuesday to decide how it's going to fill George Shirakawa's vacant seat.
The former supervisor resigned last week and now faces criminal charges. Investigators say he used taxpayer money and campaign donations to support his gambling addiction. Shirakawa has since apologized.
The board must now decide if it will appoint someone to the vacant seat or schedule a special election by June 25.
