Concord City Councilmember Dominic Aliano has been hired as the new district coordinator for state Sen. Steve Glazer, D-Orinda, Glazer’s office announced this week.

“I’m excited to bring Dominic on board to lead our district office,” Senator Glazer said. “Dominic has a strong background in delivering on the needs of local constituents. And he brings a personal history to my senate district, having been raised in Concord and serving their residents on the city council.”

Glazer’s spokesperson Steven Harmon said Aliano’s new job won’t affect his position on the Concord council. Aliano won re-election for his District 3 City Council seat in November after running unopposed. He will work out of Glazer’s office in Orinda.

Aliano begins his new day job next Monday. He will replace George Escutia, who worked for Glazer since 2015 and spent the past three years as district director.

Aliano has been district representative for two Contra Costa County supervisors: Karen Mitchoff and Federal Glover. His responsibilities included economic development, sustainability, environmental health and zoning and code enforcement.

Aliano has been on the Concord City Council since 2018 and was mayor in 2022. He has also served on the board of directors for the Monument Crisis Center, Todos Santos Business Association and Support4Recovery. He was also a Concord planning commissioner before joining the council.

Aliano graduated in 2014 with a bachelor’s degree in political science from Whitworth University in Spokane, Washington, after attending De La Salle High School in Concord.

Glazer’s state Senate district includes Dublin, Livermore, Pleasanton, Antioch, Brentwood, Clayton, Concord, Danville, Lafayette, Martinez, Moraga, Oakley, Orinda, Pittsburg, Pleasant Hill, San Ramon, and Walnut Creek.
