Rep. Ian C. Calderon is the current Majority Leader in the California State Assembly, and he’s the youngest Majority Leader in California history.

Hailing from Whittier, CA, Calderon was elected in 2012 after just celebrating his 27th birthday. At the time, he was the youngest State Legislator in California.

Before being elected to the State Assembly, Ian worked both in the private and public sectors. After graduating from college, Ian went to work for the apparel company Hurley International. There, he was the retail marketing manager for the LA/Inland Empire territory. After working for Hurley, he left the private sector to work for the California State Assembly as a Legislative Field Deputy.

While in office, he’s authored and championed bills that protect homeless veterans, require more frequent inspection of elderly care facilities, and mandated an increase in arts education funding.

Learn more about the issues he supports and why he wanted to get involved in politics.

Calderon appears to be another rising star in the Democratic party, so be sure to follow him on social media and keep your eyes and ears open for him.
