Assembly Speaker John A. Pérez (D-Los Angeles) this week announced that he has appointed Assemblymember Wilmer Amina Carter (D-Rialto) to serve as Assistant Majority Policy Leader for the 2011-2012 session of the California State Assembly.
“I am delighted that Assemblymember Wilmer Amina Carter will be bringing her commitment and skill to the role of Assistant Majority Policy Leader,” Pérez said. “Ms. Carter is dedicated to education and job creation, two of the Assembly’s top priorities, and she is a respected legislator whose soft-spoken approach gets results. I am confident that as a part of the Assembly Democrats’ leadership team, she will be very effective in helping shape our policy priorities and oversight activities.”
“As Assistant Majority Policy Leader, I am hopeful I can use the experience I’ve gained serving in these tough times to help the Assembly’s Democratic majority, especially our new members, set priorities and advance the kind of smart, innovative policy solutions our state needs to create jobs, recover from the recession and prepare our students for the future,” Carter said.
“I’m also looking forward to the part of the job that will help ensure the policies we enact are being implemented to the full benefit of the people of California.”
Assemblymember Carter represents the 62nd Assembly District which covers the cities of Rialto and Colton, portions of the cities of Fontana and San Bernardino, and the communities of Bloomington and Muscoy.
Prior to being elected to the California State Assembly, she served on the Rialto Unified School District Board for sixteen years.
Senator Curren Price (D-Los Angeles), Chair of the Legislative Black Caucus, added “Assemblymember Carter’s appointment to this important post will make the Legislature stronger as a whole by ensuring that every community has a voice in the Legislature. She will be a strong and effective leader in this new role, and will be a critical part of our efforts to create new jobs in California.”
