Senator Kevin de León was elected to serve the 22nd Senate District in November 2010. He previously represented the 45th Assembly District.
De León is committed to improving the air quality in his district, which is criss-crossed by six freeways and has some of the country’s worst air quality, as well as expanding park space in critically underserved communities. De León authored legislation that was later inserted into an omnibus measure signed into law creating hundreds of millions of dollars available for alternative fuel research and development.
De León is also a member of the Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy Board, where he is putting his vision for creating green space in heavily-urbanized and park-starved communities to work.
