My name is Caroline Torosis, and I am running for California Assembly District 51 delegate on the Progressive Slate to stand up for those in need and to ensure a thriving, inclusive, and welcoming California for all.
I am a consumer protection attorney, elected Santa Monica City Councilmember, workforce and economic development expert, and renters’ rights champion. As Senior Deputy of Workforce Development & Economic Opportunity for Supervisor Holly J. Mitchell, I’ve led the County’s economic and jobs recovery response to the pandemic by directing millions in financial relief to small businesses and enacting innovative policies that protect the rights of our front-line workers, consumers, and tenants.
While serving as an elected Commissioner on the Santa Monica Rent Control Board over the last 6 years, I've increased public transparency and worked with both tenants and landlords to minimize operating expenses normally passed onto tenants, keeping Santa Monicans in their homes.
In my last two terms as delegate to the California Democratic Party, I have served as an appointed member of the Platform Committee, working with delegates across the state to craft and adopt a platform approved by all delegates. I have also served our Assembly District as appointee to the statewide Justice, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Committee, working to create a more equitable Democratic Party.
As a delegate, I will use my policymaking expertise to advocate for economic opportunity for all, workers’ rights, racial justice, the Green New Deal and more progressive and inclusive policies. I would be honored to earn your vote.
