Anthony Rendon

California State Assemblyman (D-Lakewood)

We have ignored our water infrastructural system for well over a generation in California. This year, because of the drought, there was a renewed sense and a desire to do something.

Anthony Rendon believes that new legislation can encourage a change of public consciousness toward conservation. As a California Assemblymember, Rendon currently serves as the chair of the Water, Parks & Wildlife Committee. Drawing from this experience, he authored a statewide water bond that will provide $8 billion in funds to preserve rivers, wetlands, and watersheds while building and repairing the state’s outdated water infrastructure.

Rendon attended Cerritos Community College before earning his bachelors and master's of arts degrees from California State University, Fullerton and his Ph.D. from the University of California, Riverside.
