Vows action on interrelated issues of education, jobs, crime
(SACRAMENTO) - Tony Thurmond (D-Richmond) was sworn in as the Assemblymember for the 15th Assembly District. “I am incredibly honored to stand here today as the Assemblymember for the 15th District,” said Thurmond. “That said, this is not a time to rest on our laurels—but instead to get to work.”
Thurmond plans to focus on what he calls the interrelated issues of jobs, education and crime prevention during his time in the Assembly.
Immediately prior to his election to the Assembly, Thurmond’s project, CEO Youth, was improving school attendance and reducing dropout rates in Richmond.
This district is comprised of the East Bay communities that stretch along the I-80 corridor from Hercules to Oakland, including Albany, Berkeley, Emeryville, Piedmont, El Cerrito, Pinole, Richmond and San Pablo. The ceremony was held on the Assembly Floor at the State Capitol.
The oath of office was administered by California Supreme Court Associate Justice Goodwin Liu.
