Chris Ward promoted to Assistant Majority Leader of the CA State Assembly

Chris Ward promoted to Assistant Majority Leader of the CA State Assembly

I was excited this past week to receive word I have been promoted to Assistant Majority Leader of the State Assembly for the coming year! Through this role, I will have a stronger position to make sure essential pieces of legislation supporting climate, housing, and other critical areas pass the Assembly when they come to the floor. I am grateful to Speaker Rendon and the whole caucus for their faith in my appointment.

I was also honored to receive the Legislator of the Year Award from the San Diego Psychological Association. In addition to our shared commitment to support resources to reduce stigma, they applauded my AB 218 which was signed by the Governor to help transgender Californians with their ability to obtain updated vital records while protecting their privacy.

Assemblyward Ward represents the 78th Asssembly District which includes a stretch of San Diego County's coast from Solana Beach to the Mexican border, including part of San Diego Bay and coastal San Diego. It comprises a variety of communities, including Hilllcrest and Downtown San Diego, beachfront neighborhoods, and UC San Diego. Learn more about Assemblymber Chris Ward here.
