Facing the Housing Crisis and Promoting Public Service in California

A strong advocate for public safety, affordable housing, quality health care and education, Assemblywoman Anna M. Caballero was elected to serve the 28th Assembly District in November of 2006. The district consists of San Benito County, and portions of Monterey, Santa Cruz and Santa Clara Counties.

In her first term as an Assembly member, Caballero was appointed by the Speaker of the State Assembly to serve as the chair of the Committee on Local Government, and as a member of the committees on Appropriations; Jobs, Economic Development, and the Economy; Water Parks and Wildlife, and the Joint Legislative Budget Committee.

Born to a family of copper miners, Assemblywoman Caballero successfully obtained a bachelor’s degree from UC San Diego and a law degree from UCLA. She moved to the Salinas Valley 25 years ago to work for California Rural Legal Assistance (CRLA). As an attorney, she represented striking farm workers and fought side by side with unions to prevent plant closures.
