Chau '92 Elected to California State Assembly
Alumnus Ed Chau '92 was elected in November 2012 to represent the 49th Assembly District in California. He was recently sworn in, and in this position, he will serve the communities of Alhambra, Arcadia, El Monte, Monterey Park, Rosemead, San Gabriel, San Marino, Temple City and portions of Montebello and South El Monte.
Growing up in a working class family, Mr. Chau learned the value of hard work and a good education early on. He attended local public schools and worked his way through college to become an engineer. A former Montebello School Board Member and small business owner, Mr. Chau has also served as a Judge Pro Tem for the Los Angeles Superior Court.
"My colleagues and I are ready to hit the ground running as we work together to create jobs and ensure that students in the state receive a top-notch education," Mr. Chau said in a statement on his website. "Good schools lead to good jobs, so it is fundamental that we recognize that that these two issues are closely intertwined and both must be addressed for California to continue its path toward renewed prosperity."
