George Plescia, R-San Diego, was elected to the California State Assembly in 2002 to represent the 75th Assembly
District, which includes San Diego, Escondido, Poway, and the surrounding communities. Assemblyman Plescia
was elected by his peers as Republican Assembly Leader, a position he held through the 2006 elections cycle.

Easing traffic gridlock and improving transportation infrastructure are Assemblyman Plescia’s top legislative
priorities. Last year, he authored key legislation (ACA 4) to protect Proposition 42 gas tax funds from future raids
by politicians. Recognized with a 100 percent pro-jobs rating by the California Chamber of Commerce, Plescia has
been honored for his leadership by small business owners (IGCS Legislator of the Year) and California’s growing
biotech industry (BIOCOM Legislator of the Year).

Plescia is working hard to advance the Republican agenda of reform – prioritizing spending to meet critical needs,
protecting families from dangerous criminals, encouraging more innovation and parental involvement in our
schools, and prioritizing California’s infrastructure needs.

He will continue to work on strengthening laws to protect our children by giving parents internet-accessible
information on the location of the most violent sexual offenders; enacting fiscal policies to lead California down the
road to economic recovery; actively supporting the mission of our troops abroad and protecting the military
installations in California that are so vital to our national defense and economy.

Prior to being elected to the Assembly, Plescia served as regional director for State Senator Bill Morrow, R-
Oceanside. A graduate of California State University, Sacramento, Assemblyman Plescia and his wife Melissa make
their home in San Diego.
