(LONG BEACH) – Assemblymember Patrick O’Donnell (D-Long Beach) encourages political and public policy enthusiasts to apply for the prestigious Capital Fellows Programs. The Jesse Marvin Unruh Assembly Fellowship, the California Senate Fellows, the Executive Fellowship and the Judicial Administration Fellowship all have application deadlines of February 8, 2016.
“The fellowship program is a unique opportunity to dive into the fascinating world of the California Legislature,” said Assemblymember O’Donnell, who is an alumnus of the Assembly Fellowship program. “One of the most amazing aspects of the fellowship is the diverse field of candidates it attracts. Take me for example, as a school teacher I applied and was accepted into the program. As a fellow, I saw firsthand how the policy that shapes the classroom was crafted, debated, and established.”
Assemblyman Patrick O'Donnell, D-Long Beach, introduced legislation Wednesday that he hopes brings more money to the local ports to help reduce pollution.

In a statement, O'Donnell said the twin port complex, the nation's largest, was cited by the Southern California Air Quality Management District as the single largest source of air pollution in the region.
