About Wendy Gabriella
I am a democratic candidate for Assembly District 73, a long-time resident of the District, college professor, and public-interest lawyer. I offer the voters a stark choice between typical politicians and a consensus building candidate with the proven ability to work across partisan lines.
After earning my Associate of Arts degree at Palomar Community College, I attended San Diego State
University and received my Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees in Anthropology. Upon graduation in 1983, I
began my college teaching career. In 1989, I graduated from California Western School of Law with my Juris Doctorate, moved to South Orange County to accept a full-time professorship, and gave birth to my daughter. I was admitted to the California Bar in 1990. In addition to teaching Anthropology and raising a daughter as a single mother, I practice law specializing in the California Open Meeting Act, Public Records Act, First Amendment (Freedom of Speech), and Employment Law. I have successfully litigated numerous lawsuits vindicating important public policies, and fostering open and transparent government.
As a career educator and fiscal conservative, I have witnessed first-hand how access to education, including career technical education, provides a skilled workforce and contributes to job creation and economic development. I have worked tirelessly in the classroom for 30 years with my students as well as with state agencies and elected officials to promote academic excellence in order to educate the next generations for the coming economy.
I have served in numerous elected governance positions, including an unprecedented 7 years as President of the college’s Faculty Senate. I am known for my exemplary leadership abilities, including the ability to work inclusively, collaboratively, and to develop consensus. I am a strong advocate for transparency in decision-making at all levels. I have the reputation for getting the job done right and am considered by my colleagues to be a natural leader.
I am committed to representing the 73rd Assembly District, enforcing fiscal accountability, spending caps, and the elimination of partisan politics. It’s time to look forward and plan for the future. California is in transition. I have an innovative, positive perspective and I’m willing to implement change, change that will protect and invest in California’s future.
