Assemblywoman Mariko Yamada, D-Davis, was sworn into office Monday at a state Capitol ceremony to represent California’s newly drawn 4th Assembly District.

Although this is Yamada’s third term, she will be representing a constituency that is 68 percent new following the statewide redistricting approved in 2011. The 4th District includes portions of her previous district in Yolo and Solano counties, but now includes all of Lake and Napa and parts of Colusa and Sonoma counties.

“I am honored to continue serving in the state Legislature, and am ready to get to work on behalf of all our constituents in the big, beautiful new 4th District,” Yamada said.

A Democrat, she takes her place as part of a historic supermajority in both houses of the Legislature, the first in California for nearly 130 years.

“This unexpected Assembly supermajority presents a great opportunity to recover, rebuild and reform our state,” Yamada said. “As our legislative leaders and the governor have already indicated, we will move California forward, but wisely and with restraint.”

Among Yamada’s priorities are sustaining agriculture; protecting California’s water supply; veterans affairs, and jobs and the economy. She also chairs the Assembly Aging and Long Term Care Committee, an issue area that is increasing in importance with the aging of the baby boomer generation. In addition, she will continue to focus on providing high-quality constituent services.

Yamada, a former social worker, has nearly four decades of public service at the local, state and federal levels, and in nonprofit community settings. She and her husband of 29 years live in Davis, and are the parents of two adult daughters.

To reach her office, call 707-455-8025 or email assemblymember.yamada@assembly.ca.gov. For more information, visit her website at www.assembly.ca.gov/yamada.
