Applications Open for California Senior Legislator Election


VENTURA, California – The Ventura County Area Agency on Aging, a division of the Human Services Agency, is seeking applicants for an open Senior Assembly Member position on the California Senior Legislature. This person will also serve on the VCAAA’s Advisory Council.

The California Senior Legislature is a volunteer body whose primary mission is to help preserve and enhance the quality of life for older Californians and their families. The CSL gathers ideas for legislation at the state and federal levels, crafts the ideas into formal proposals, prioritizes the proposals, presents them to members of the Legislature or the Congress, and advocates for laws implementing the ideas.

Each October, the CSL meets in Sacramento to convene a model legislative session in the chambers and hearing rooms of the State Capitol. The CSL members participate in hearing testimony, debating issues, and voting to approve or disapprove legislative proposals.

Forty Senior Senators and 80 Senior Assembly Members are selected in elections supervised by the Advisory Councils of the state’s various Area Agencies on Aging.

Candidates must be 55 or older. The application deadline is March 29, 2024. The election packet is attached, though it, and more information related to the election process, can be found at in the Forms section. The completed packet – which must also include a resume that outlines one’s experience at the city and county levels dealing with older adults – should be emailed to or mailed to Roger Horne, VCAAA, 646 County Square Drive #100, Ventura, CA, 93003.

After nominations are received, the VCAAA’s Advisory Council will hold an election at its May 8, 2024 meeting. Newly elected members will be sworn in during the October 2024 Annual Legislative Session. The term of this position runs through October 2026.
