About Senator Hertzberg
Senate Majority Leader Robert Hertzberg was first elected to the California State Assembly in 1996. He then served as the 64thSpeaker of the California State Assembly, unanimously elected by both parties in 2000 and 2001.
After his tenure as Speaker, Hertzberg set out to the private sector as a clean energy entrepreneur and in 2014, he returned to state government when he was again elected to represent nearly 1 million people in the San Fernando Valley in the California State Senate. This made Hertzberg one of only six lawmakers in California history to serve as Assembly Speaker and subsequently win a seat in the Senate, where he now serves as Majority Leader.
Sacramento columnist, he is “an intense bundle of energy, an all-night negotiator.”
