Gregg Hart was sworn in Monday, December 5, as the Assemblymember for District 37 at the State Capitol. The newly elected Assemblymember will represent Santa Barbara County and southern San Luis Obispo County.
“I am grateful for the opportunity to serve my community as a member of the State Assembly,” said Hart. “I look forward to working collaboratively to address challenges facing the Central Coast and all of California. Together, we can increase educational opportunities, protect our environment, and keep our economy thriving.”
Hart comes to the Assembly with four decades of experience in public service and policy. Most recently, Hart helped lead Santa Barbara County’s COVID-19 response and recovery as a Santa Barbara County Supervisor.
Previously, Hart served as a Santa Barbara City Councilmember, California Coastal Commissioner, sustainable transportation leader, and Legislative Assistant to former Assemblymember Jack O’Connell. Outside of government, Hart operated a family-owned child care center for many years.
“From Carpinteria to Nipomo, and the Gaviota Coast to Cuyama, the Central Coast is home to a diverse population, rich natural resources, and a robust economy,” said Hart. “I will work every day to improve the quality of life for working families in our communities.”
