Longtime county educator James Mousalimas has declared his candidacy for the San Joaquin County Superintendent of Schools position. Current Superintendent Mick Founts does not plan to seek re-election next year.

Mousalimas of Tracy is currently the deputy superintendent of the San Joaquin County Office of Education, a position he's held since 2008.

He joins Jeff Tilton of Manteca and Gary Del Rossi of Stockton, who both announced their candidacies for the same elected position in August.

In a news release Monday, Mousalimas claims among his early supporters former County Schools Superintendent Dr. Fredrick Wentworth, Tracy Schools Superintendent Dr. James Franco and San Joaquin County Supervisor Steve Bestolarides.

Mousalimas, who previously worked as both a teacher and administrator for the Tracy Unified School District, currently sits on the board of the Community Partnership for Families and serves as vice chairman of the Measure S Oversight Committee.

A former Peace Corps volunteer and graduate of University of California, Berkeley, the College of New Jersey and California State University, Stanislaus, Mousalimas is married to his wife of 23 years. Together they have three children, all of whom attended or currently attend local public schools.
