About Christy SmithRead Press Release
Assemblywoman Christy Smith is no stranger to public service. After growing up in Santa Clarita and staying close by for college, Smith worked at the US Department of Education before returning home to sit on the board of the Newhall School District. Since 2018, she has represented Simi Valley, San Fernando Valley, and Santa Clarita Valley in the California State Assembly, where she has worked closely with her constituents and with law enforcement to create safer communities.
This year, Assemblywoman Smith is taking the national stage as a congressional candidate in California’s 25th District. With her experience in education policy and as a mother, she understands the anxiety that parents across the country face when they send their children to school every day, as well as the traumatizing effect that active shooter drills have on students. In November 2019, the ever-present threat of a school shooting turned into a terrifying reality for her constituents at Saugus High School, once again highlighting the necessity of electing leaders to Congress who will pass lifesaving legislation. Assemblywoman Smith is ready to take on that role to make sure that tragedies like this one never happen again.
