Alex Padilla, the first Latin senator in California


Alex Padilla, California’s previous secretary of state and one-time Los Angeles City councilman, made the vow of office, as the state’s most current and first Latino U.S. representative.

After now-President Joe Biden and now Vice President Kamala Harris won the 2020 Presidential Election, California Gov. Gavin Newsom picked Padilla to select to Harris’ senate seat.

Padilla, 47, who was brought up in the Pacoima region, is an alum of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where he acquired a degree in mechanical designing, investing energy at Hughes Aircraft prior to changing to governmental issues.

He went through over seven years on the Los Angeles City Council, speaking to the Seventh District in the northeastern San Fernando Valley, filling in as board president for a very long time – the most youthful and first Latino to actually hold that post. He was chosen secretary of state in 2015.

Biden and Harris were confirmed Wednesday morning, preparing for the previous representative to swear in her successor as VP.

“As I plan to enter the United States Senate, I will carry on the mission of building a more comprehensive popular government and economy for all,” Padilla said Monday.

Newsom has selected Assemblywoman Shirley Weber, D-San Diego, to take over as secretary of state. Whenever affirmed by the Legislature, Weber will turn into the principal Black woman to actually hold that position.
