Meet California District 17’s 2022 Assembly Candidates
With the election to fill the Assembly seat for California’s 17th District on April 19, 2022, sf.citi is excited to present the results of the April 2022 Assembly Candidate Questionnaire.
The California State Assembly is the lower house in the California legislature, consisting of 80 members who play an integral role in the state’s policy and decision-making authorities. San Francisco only has two representatives in the Assembly, which means an open seat is extremely rare and incredibly competitive when an opening does occur. To make this upcoming April election even more significant, the winner will head into the following June primary and November general election with the ever-important title of the incumbent.
