Alioto Veronese eyes elected office

Joe Alioto Veronese, once a police commissioner and who made an unsuccessful bid for senator in a race with the likes of Joe Nation and Mark Leno, is making a go at becoming a member of the Democratic County Central Committee in 2010.

This committee is often used by the politically ambitious to gain exposure and contacts to make a run for positions like a seat on the Board of Supervisors.
 
Veronese has filed papers to form a political committee to begin raising money for the race.
 
Recently, former Board of Supervisors President Aaron Peskin and fellow progressives gave the DCCC a whole new reputation and cast it into the political spotlight.

It once was a little-known political committee, but it then overnight became a political sensation as seasoned political veterans like Peskin and Supervisor Chris Daly were elected onto the committee, looking to exert influence over local politics, particularly in opposition to Mayor Gavin Newsom’s more moderate brand of politics.
