Sept. 9th: Chat with API Legislative Caucus Departing Members

Join us as we celebrate the contributions of our departing APILC members, Asm. Gloria and Asm. Chu, and hear some of their reflections from their time as members of the legislature.

Kansen Chu

Assemblymember, California District 25

Since elected in 2014, Chu has focused on mental health, public safety, education, environmental protection and justice, and good governance in the legislature. From 2018 to 2019, Assemblymember Chu secured more than $60 million to support training and recruitment of mental health professionals, fight against car break-ins and property theft, senior services, arts education and emergency preparedness.  In addition to successful funding requests, Chu passed bills to increase schoolbus safety, expand access to mental health services, secure more funding for public transportation, improve state’s recycling efforts, expand access to clean drinking water for disadvantaged communities, protect domestic abuse survivors, and move the State away from outdated practice of switching the clock twice a year. 

Todd Gloria

Assemblymember, California District 78

In December 2016, Todd Gloria was sworn in as the California State Assemblymember for the 78th Assembly District making him only the second person of Filipino heritage ever elected to the California State Assembly.

A native San Diegan, Todd’s lifelong career in public service was inspired by a lesson his parents – a hotel maid and a gardener – taught him at a young age: if you truly care about something, then you should leave it better than you found it. That lesson continues to motivate Todd to improve the San Diego region and the State of California every single day.

David Chiu

Assemblymember, California District 17

As a member of the California State Legislature, David Chiu represents the 17th Assembly District, which encompasses eastern San Francisco.  He was first elected in 2014 and re-elected in 2016 and 2018. During David’s first year, he served as Assistant Speaker pro Tempore; since 2016, he has served as Chair of the Assembly Housing & Community Development Committee. He also sits on the following legislative committees: Budget; Business and Professions; Judiciary; Arts, Entertainment, Sports, Tourism, and Internet Media.  He also serves as Chair of the California Asian Pacific Islander Legislative Caucus.

During his first four years in the Assembly, David has authored 48 bills that were signed into law by the Governor. Among other efforts, the bills addressed the state’s housing crisis, protected tenants, assisted LGBT families, upheld a woman’s right to choose, promoted sustainable transportation options, and facilitated voting by young people.
