|Assemblyman Levine meets and greets new consituents
Marc Levine won an extremely close battle for the 10th District State Assembly seat last November, but he’s finally seated and getting around to meet his constituency. One of his stops took place in the Petaluma Library, Saturday afternoon, March 16.
Since California redistricting of political districts has occurred, not every voter remains sure where the new borders are and who is their representative. The newly formed 10th District runs north from Sausalito to include Marin County, Petaluma, Cotati, part of Rohnert Park and on up to Santa Rosa. The Graton Tribe casino is in his territory.
Field Representative George Haris said he doesn’t have a map of the district, street by street in Sonoma County. But if voters live in Mike Kerns’ former Second Supervisorial District (now represented by David Rabbitt), they’ll have a rough idea of the 10th District borders.
Haris supplied a one-page biography on Levine. It’s mostly political achievements and doesn’t provide any information about his age or dates of college studies, except to say he and his wife, Wendy, and two children live in San Rafael.
He earned a BA in political science at Cal State Northridge and an MA in national security affairs from the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey. No dates were given. He’s also a former San Rafael City Council member.
The 10th District is bordered on the north by the newly formed 4th District and includes the major portions of Rohnert Park.
