Assemblyman Tim Leslie, known as one of rural California�s foremost advocates, has served the people of Northern California since 1987. Working tirelessly on behalf of consumer privacy rights, Mr. Leslie led efforts to bring privacy laws into the computer age by authoring several laws preventing the misuse of personal information. The numerous laws he has authored to protect citizens� privacy include the Text Messaging Privacy Act, which outlawed sending "spam" messages to mobile phones and pagers with text messaging capabilities, and SB 1382 to outlaw disclosure of medical records without a patient�s consent. Further, Assemblyman Leslie is a former State Senator who knows the value of bi-partisanship while still standing up for the needs of his constituents.
In addition to his efforts to protect privacy, Assemblyman Leslie was one of the Legislative leaders who strove to maintain and improve Megan�s Law, which tracks sexual predators. Named "Legislator of the Year" by the Regional Council of Rural Counties, the California School Board Association, and the California Probation Officers Association, Assemblyman Leslie was recently honored by the California Chamber of Commerce for having "one of the best voting records in the Legislature."
Mr. Leslie and his wife Clydene have lived in Northern California for over 35 years. He earned his degree in Political Science from Cal State University, Long Beach, and a Master�s degree in Public Administration from the University of Southern California.
