Alan Lowenthal

Senator Alan Lowenthal is a College Professor and California State Senator who has lived in Southern California for more than forty years. Senator Lowenthal has brought his coalition building skills and real-world solutions to the table for over twenty years; first as a Long Beach City Council Member, then as a CA State Assembly Member, and now as a CA State Senator.

As the former Chair of the Senate Transportation Committee
and current Chair of the Select Committee on Goods Movement, Senator Lowenthal has played a leading role in
promoting new infrastructure and clean "green" technologies that have simultaneously led to more efficient transportation systems, especially around the Port of Long Beach, which has been labeled as one of the biggest and most eco-friendly port in the Nation.

Senator Alan Lowenthal is currently the Chair of the Senate Education Committee, and is the author of the recently enacted College Promise Act (SB 650). This historic act brings together business and education leaders to better prepare students to succeed in school and in the job market after graduation. Locally, this has resulted in an 80% acceptance rate of Long Beach Unified School District and Long Beach Community College students into California State University, Long Beach.

In Sacramento and in Southern California, Alan Lowenthal has been widely recognized as an effective, bi-partisan problem solver, and is known for his ability to reach across the aisle and garner overwhelming bipartisan support for real-world solutions to pressing issues such as education, the environment, and job creation. Senator Lowenthal offers the exact kind of leadership and expertise we need in the newly redrawn 47th District and in Washington.

The newly redrawn 47th District includes parts of Long Beach, Lakewood, Signal Hill, Cypress, Garden Grove, Westminster, Los Alamitos, Rossmoor, and Stanton.
