Assemblymemer Tim Grayson - Assemblymember Grayson was elected to serve in the California Assembly in November 2016 as the representative of the 14th Assembly District, which encompasses portions of Contra Costa and Solano Counties. He is the son of a Teamster father and his mother was a public transit worker. He is the first in his family to earn a college degree.
Since being elected to the Assembly, Grayson has focused on issues related to addressing California’s housing and transportation crises, increasing our budget reserves and access to higher education, mitigating human trafficking, minimizing the risk of wildfires and helping individuals with special needs. Seventeen of the bills Grayson authored in his first term were signed into law.
In order to help protect the state against the boom and bust economic cycles of the past decades, Assemblymember Grayson was at the forefront of creating a new budget reserve to compliment the constitutionally-capped Rainy Day Fund. Grayson fought to create the new Budget Deficit Savings Account, and helped secure an initial deposit of $1.75 billion, in the hope that we will be able to avoid devastating and debilitating cuts to education and social and government services should a recession strike again.
Grayson continues to serve as the Concord Police Department’s Critical Response Chaplain, a position he has held since 2007, providing emotional support and counseling to first responders, victims, and their families during and after traumatic events.
Grayson serves on the Assembly Banking and Finance Committee, the Business and Professions Committee, the Insurance Committee, the Transportation Committee, and the Committee on Rules. Grayson chairs the Select Committee on Streamlining Services for Victims of Interpersonal Violence.
