Sandré R. Swanson is in the race for the 9th Senate District seat. He served three successful terms as a Member of the California State Assembly 2006 to 2012. He was the Chair of the Assembly Labor & Employment Committee and was a vocal advocate for growing the middle class with sustainable jobs. Mr. Swanson also served on the Assembly Budget Committee, Sub-committee on Education Finance; Assembly Committee
on Utilities and Commerce and was the Speaker’s Appointee to the State Workforce Investment Board.
During his tenure in the Assembly, Mr. Swanson passed landmark legislation dealing with the atrocities of human trafficking—which he calls “modern day slavery.” His legislative work assisted with the development of programs for job training, housing and counseling for the victims of human trafficking—some as young as 12 years old. Several of his laws are prominently referenced on the California Attorney General’s web site. District Attorney offices are using these laws across our State to successfully prosecute human trafficking criminals in California today.
Early key endorsements of his campaign for the California Senate include key legislators currently representing the people of the 9th Senate district. They include the incumbent, Senator Loni Hancock, Assemblymember Rob Bonta, Assemblymember Tony Thurmond and his campaigns Honorary Chair, Congresswoman Barbara Lee.
