Held by Madam Speaker Toni Atkins, this environmentally aware district has a rich history of distinguished women leaders:

  • Christine Kehoe, known for her ardent support of LGBT rights now runs the CA Plug-In Electric Vehicle Collaborative.
  • Susan Davis, currently serving in Congress, wrote the state law that allows women to choose their OB/GYN without prior consent.
  • Dede Alpert, an education champ who put the interests of women and children first.
