What an incredible 2022! On the heels of Mia Bonta’s 2021 election, LEG elected two other amazing women—Liz Ortega and Diane Papan—to the Assembly this year, adding to a legislative class with more women than ever! In Alameda County progressive Oakland Council President Nikki Fortunato Bas retained her seat while AAPI leader Julia Mates made history as Belmont’s first directly elected Mayor. LEG closes the year with 66 wins/enactments for transformative public servants, and measures that improve our schools and communities. Onwards to 2023/2024!
