RIVERSIDE, Calif. (www.ucr.edu) — An alumnus of the University of California, Riverside who now serves in the California State Legislature will return to his alma mater to present a free talk and sit for a Q&A with students and community members.

Assemblymember Marc Steinorth, a Republican representative of California’s 40th District, will visit The Barn at UCR on Friday, April 20, from 5-7 p.m. to discuss state-level public policy issues. Sponsored by UCR’s School of Public Policy, the event is free and open to the public, although advance registration is requested and can be completed here.

Steinorth, who graduated in 1992 with a bachelor’s degree in political science from UCR, was elected to the California State Legislature in 2014 and re-elected in 2016. As a representative of the 40th District, he serves most of the cities of San Bernardino and Rancho Cucamonga along with portions of Redlands, Loma Linda, and Highland.

Over the course of his two terms, Steinorth has introduced legislation as varied as Assembly Bill 797, which protects citizens from penalties if they free an animal inside a vehicle from the threat of immediate danger, and Assembly Bill 664, designed to increase the transparency of campaign spending by ensuring that candidates for public office don’t use campaign contributions to pay immediate family members beyond fair market value.

In addition, he previously served as vice chair of the Assembly Committee on Housing and Community Development, as well as on the Business and Professions, Health, and Governmental Organization committees.

Born in San Bernardino to a military family, Steinorth moved to Rancho Cucamonga after attending UCR and was elected to the Rancho Cucamonga City Council in 2012. An entrepreneur and longtime small business owner, he is also the founder of the advertising agency Atlas Buying Group Inc., based in Rancho Cucamonga, where he continues to live with his two children.
