Maienschein attended elementary, middle and high school in the district. He is the only candidate with deep roots in the community who also has children attending school in the local school district.
While serving as a San Diego City Councilmember, Maienschein preserved over 10,000 acres from development in the San Pasqual Valley and spearheaded the completion of SR-56.
Maienschein also led the rebuilding of two communities following the devastating Cedar and Witch Creek wildfires, both of which became the fastest disaster recoveries in California. While serving as the Commissioner on Homelessness, he directed United Way’s Project 25, which saves taxpayers millions of dollars every year, reduces homelessness, and serves veterans.
Since his election to the Assembly in 2012, Maienschein has worked to protect public safety, build a strong economy, and improve public education. He has introduced legislation that would protect children by providing youth sports leagues the authority to conduct criminal background checks on all coaches. He has also supported the efforts of law enforcement by introducing a bill dedicated to mitigating the negative impacts of prisoner realignment.
“I am proud to serve this community as your Assemblymember. I will continue fighting for solutions to our state’s challenges in the areas of public safety, economic development, and education. I would be honored to receive your vote.”
