League’s California Civic Leadership Institute Graduates Fare Well in June Primary

June 8, 2012

Graduates of the League’s California Civic Leadership Institute (CCLI) fared well during the recent June 5 primary election. The League commends these individuals who aspire to serve in the Legislature. Candidates who come from local government backgrounds truly understand the state/local dynamic.


In addition to the CCLI alumni, approximately 20 other local government candidates made it through the primary election and all have been invited to a Post-Primary Networking Social on Tuesday, June 12 at The Mix in Sacramento from 5 – 7 p.m. 

The Post-Primary Networking Social is a great opportunity for local government candidates to network with CCLI alumni serving in the Legislature including Assembly Members Curt Hagman (R-Chino Hills), Fiona Ma (D-San Francisco), Anthony Portantino (D-Pasadena), and Sen. Alex Padilla (D-Pacoima) and also network with League Partners.

The League congratulates the CCLI alumni who were successful in the primary:

  • Richard Bloom, mayor, Santa Monica, AD 50
