InfoAssemblyman Curren Price was first elected to the California State Assembly in 2006, and was re-elected by an overwhelming margin to a second term in 2008. He is currently a candidate for the 26th senatorial district that was vacated when Senator Mark Ridley-Thomas was recently elected to the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors.

Assemblyman Price has been a leading champion for working families and has fought to preserve the rights of California workers. He led efforts to support homecare workers, hotel workers, security guards and other workers to organize for better wages and benefits.

Assemblyman Price has been a strong and consistent advocate for small business, and has continued to be one of California's most influential voices for creating new opportunities for small business enterprises. He believes in policies that spark business growth, encourage innovation, open the doors of opportunity for all, creates jobs and stimulate our state's economy. He wrote legislation that would increase opportunities for small businesses to compete for state contracts and offer incentives for creating new jobs.

Assemblyman Price has worked to expand the quality and affordability of health care for all Californians and has authored legislation that would allow parents to add dependent children up to age 27 to their employer-based health plans. He also joined colleagues to pass legislation that would have led to universal health care, and authored legislation that was signed into law requiring hospitals to give public notice prior to closing its doors or eliminating vital health services.

Assemblyman Price grew up in Los Angeles where he attended Audubon Jr. High School. His family later moved to the city of Inglewood where he became the first African-American to be elected student body president at Morningside High School. He graduated from Stanford University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in political science, and earned a Juris Doctorate degree from the University of Santa Clara School of Law.
