A senior from Saint Joseph Notre Dame High School (SJND) will have his photograph grace the halls of Congress. Each spring, the Alexandria, Va.-based non-profit Congressional Institute sponsors “Congressional Arts Competition, An Artistic Discovery,” a nationwide high-school visual-art competition. The institute works with Congress to recognize and encourage artistic talent in each congressional district. 

Councilman Tony Daysog has announced he’s considering a run for a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives about to be vacated in Contra Costa County.

Daysog, a former city of Alameda vice mayor, looks to step in as veteran democratic Rep. George Miller retires after his term ends in January 2015. Daysog’s plans were announced in an email last Friday.
