Join Ian on the campaign.
In the District
Ian began his career in public service as a legislative caseworker, helping constituents make our state government work for them. As an Assembly Member, Ian has held onto that focus: The residents of the 57th District always come first.
- Every year, Ian's College & Career Fair hosts over 2,000 high school students, parents, and teachers, offering them access to more than 50 colleges from around the country as well as workshops on the college and financial aid application processes. In addition, he has raised and distributed over $20,000 in scholarships to area students through the College & Career Fair's Scholarship Program & Essay Contest.
- Ian has worked tirelessly to bring resources back to the community. He has facilitated more than $15,000 in grants to support Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics (STEAM) learning in schools throughout the district.
- Throughout the year, high school and college students from throughout the district gain valuable experience through Ian's Assembly Internship Program. Interns learn the intricacies of local and state government, build strong relationships, and receive guidance from accomplished professionals.
- Ian has guided his team to assist hundreds of individuals to navigate roadblocks in state and local government, from applying for disability insurance to filing income taxes.
At the Capitol
As the 57th District's representative in the California State Assembly and as the Assembly's Majority Leader, Ian has championed the needs of the working families who live in our communities. He's proud to have fought for:
- A minimum wage increase to $15 per hour.
- The implementation of Covered California and an historic Medicare expansion to cover our neighbors who most urgently need healthcare.
- The Right to Try Act, which allows patients with an immediately life-threatening disease to seek investigational drugs when all other treatment options have been exhausted.
- More regular inspections of licensed community care facilities and harsher penalties for repeat violations in order to protect our seniors and most vulnerable citizens.
- The inclusion of financial literacy in six different grade levels to better prepare our children for successful independence.
- Bilingual examinations for insurance agents, protecting Spanish-speaking consumers from miscommunication or fraud.
