InfoSenator Alan Lowenthal is strongly committed to ensure that the interests of the 27th Senate District are represented in Sacramento, including education, public safety, economic development and environmental protection.

Among his many accomplishments Senator Lowenthal has had legislation signed into law to reduce diesel emissions at the ports by limiting idling time for trucks conducting transactions at the ports, established a grant program to provide financial incentives for purchasing or leasing electric vehicles, and a bill to protect highway workers from assault.

His legislation limiting the liability for organizations donating firefighting equipment was hailed as a major accomplishment by the California State Firefighters Association, which named him their “Legislator of the Year.”

In addition, Senator Lowenthal has authored laws which help protect seniors from elder abuse, require the ports to cover open petroleum coke piles and removed the toll from the Vincent Thomas Bridge. His strong advocacy on behalf of local governments led to him being named “Legislator of the Year” by the League of California Cities.

He has been an effective leader in the drive to clean the L.A. River, securing state funding for that purpose in several budgets. His efforts led to him being one of the first recipients of the “Rivie” award by the Friends of the Los Angeles River. He has also has exhibited strong leadership in the cleaning the air surrounding the Ports of L.A. and Long Beach, resulting in his being honored by the California League of Conservation Voters (CLCV), the Sierra Club and the South Coast Air Quality District.

Senator Lowenthal serves as Chair of the Senate Committee on Transportation and Housing as well as its Subcommittee on California Ports and is recognized as a National leader on issues related to goods movement.

A resident of Long Beach, Senator Lowenthal is married to Dr. Debbie Malumed, a family practice physician. He has two adult sons, Joshua and Daniel and one grandson, Avinash. He graduated with a B.A. from Hobart College and earned a Ph.D. from the Ohio State University. Alan Lowenthal was re-elected to his second term representing the 27th District of the California State Senate in November of 2008.

Prior to his election to the Senate, Lowenthal served six years in the State Assembly and six years on the Long Beach City Council. Senator Lowenthal is a retired professor of community psychology from California State University, Long Beach, where he taught since 1969.

The 27th Senate District includes the Los Angeles County communities of Avalon, Long Beach, Signal Hill, Lakewood, Cerritos, Artesia, Bellflower, Downey, South Gate, Lynwood, Paramount, Hawaiian Gardens, Florence-Graham and Willowbrook.
