    The Position


    State assemblymembers represent and advocate for the needs of their district constituents at the California State Capitol. They are responsible for creating, debating, and voting on legislation that addresses issues within their district.

    The California State Assembly has 80 districts. Each represents a population of at least 465,000 Californians. Representatives are elected to the Assembly for a two-year term. Every two years, all 80 seats are subject to election. Members elected before 2012 are restricted to three two-year terms (six years) in the Assembly. Those elected in or after 2012 are allowed to serve 12 years total across both the state Senate or the Assembly. This term, Democrats currently hold a two-thirds supermajority of 56 seats in the California State Assembly, while Republicans hold 19 seats. One seat is held by an Independent and four seats are currently vacant.

     

     

     

    The District


    California’s 62nd Assembly District includes parts of Los Angeles County. Democrats typically hold this district. Of the registered voters in this district, 15% are Republican and 56% are Democrat, and the district’s demographic breakdown is 67% Latino, 7% Asian, and 9% Black. After the 2021 redistricting process, AD-62 is 2% less Democratic than it was during the 2020 general election cycle. The most recent election results show that AD-62 voted for Biden for president in 2020 by 47 points and Newsom for governor in 2018 by 48 points.

     

     

     

    The Race


    There are two candidates running for this seat: Democrat Incumbent Representative Anthony Rendón and Democrat Maria Estrada. Rendón’s campaign has raised over $800,000 and is funded by police, real estate, fossil fuel, and corporate PAC money. Estrada’s campaign has not yet filed any fundraising receipts with the Secretary of State’s office. This is the third election between Rendón and Estrada. In 2020, Rendón won reelection by 7 points.

     

     

     

    The Recommendation


    Assm. Rendón, an educator, nonprofit executive director, environmental activist, and the current speaker of the Assembly, is from Los Angeles. According to campaign materials, Assm. Rendón is running for reelection to fight for a clean and open government.

    Assm. Rendón’s priorities for AD-62 this year have included a bill about impeaching former President Trump, which successfully passed the House. He currently sits on the Arts Committee and the Rules Committee. He scores a 100 out of 100 on Courage Score, our annual analysis of legislators’ progressive voting record. Based on our Courage Score analysis, Assm. Rendón has supported the most progressive bills that made it to a vote, and has been particularly outspoken in advocating for immigrant communities. Assm. Rendón has been criticized for several decisions he has made recently as speaker, including denying assembly members the ability to vote by proxy during the pandemic, allowing Assembly committee chairs to exclude public comment at hearings, and removing Assm. Evan Low as Business and Professions Committee chair. He has also been lukewarm in his advocacy for key progressive policies, failing to provide ground-level support for important issues as bills move through the Assembly. Notably, Assm. Rendón has failed to cast a vote on two recent bills: AB 570, which expanded health insurance to cover parents, and AB 1183, which increased funding for conservation, recreation, and environmental education projects in California’s desert region.

    Prior to his election to the State Assembly, Rep. Rendón served as executive director of Plaza de la Raza Child Development Services, which provides child development, social, and medical services to families in Los Angeles County. He is a longtime supporter of child education.

    Assm. Rendón has the endorsement of many progressive groups and labor unions in the district. He is also endorsed by police groups. Based on our analysis, Assm. Rendón’s track record and policy positions demonstrate that he will continue to be a progressive champion for the constituents of AD-62, and should be pushed to be a more effective leader on progressive policies and procedures as the speaker of the Assembly.
