Tony Thurmond knows that if we get it right for our kids, families and seniors then we’ll get it right for California.
That’s why, as a non-profit leader, school board member, city councilmember and mentor, Tony has been making real progress on the big issues facing Californians today - the economy, education, crime and safety, and the environment.
Tony has been uniting people in support of youth and families for more than 20 years. Now Tony is ready to put his skills and experience to work in Sacramento as our new assemblymember for District 15.
"To get it right, we need to give our youth a California as good as its promise," says Tony. "To get there, we need to do the real work to improve our schools, reduce dropout rates, create sustainable jobs that preserve our environment and invest in job training opportunities to build a 21st-century workforce."
Tony has helped build our district’s economy from the ground up, creating innovative job training and workforce housing programs and creating sustainable jobs for California youth. His current project, CEO Youth, is succeeding in improving school attendance and reducing dropout rates. Tony has been at the forefront of combating gang and gun violence in his community in Richmond, and actively involved in regional crime and safety efforts along the I-80 corridor.
Tony knows that jobs, education and crime are interrelated challenges. And he is the only candidate with deep experience in creating proven, integrated solutions.
Tony served on the Richmond City Council from 2005-2008. He served as Council Liaison to Richmond’s Youth Commission and Workforce Investment Board and the Council Liaison to the West Contra Costa Unified School District. Tony was also a member of the California League of Cities Environmental Policy Committee and the West Contra Costa Transportation Advisory Committee. He was a Fellow in the Annie E. Casey Foundation’s Children and Family Fellowship program and is a graduate and former student body president of Temple University.
