Assemblymember Toni Atkins Biography
Assemblymember Toni Atkins was first elected to the California State Assembly in November 2010 to represent the 76th Assembly District. In 2012, she was re-elected to represent the newly redrawn 78th Assembly District which includes the coastal San Diego communities from Imperial Beach, along the Mexican border, north to Solana Beach, as well as most of central San Diego.
Atkins previously served as a member of the San Diego City Council, a position she held from 2000-2008. During her tenure on the Council, Ms. Atkins served as a member of a number of the Council’s policy issue committees and as Acting Mayor in 2005 when the previous Mayor resigned. Prior to her election, Assemblymember Atkins also served on the staff of former Councilmember Christine Kehoe, who was later elected to both the State Assembly and Senate.
Assemblymember Atkins has battled for affordable housing throughout her public career, leading the charge to enact the nation’s first Housing State of Emergency in San Diego. She also worked to create the first inclusionary housing policy and secured $55 million in housing funds for the construction of new affordable housing units throughout San Diego.
