    Madam Assembly Speaker? Jenny Oropeza's Office Confirms She's Seeking Post

    (Sept. 30, 2003) -- The Sacramento office of 55th district Assemblywoman Jenny Oropeza (D., LB-Carson) has confirmed to that the former LB Councilwoman is seeking the support of the Democratic caucus to become the powerful Speaker of the CA Assembly.

    "She would be honored and thrilled to serve as speaker," said Ray Sotero, the Assemblywoman's press secretary. "She believes her experience as Assembly budget chair and as a local government leader would bring great depth to the job," he added.

    The Assembly is currently scheduled to re-convene in January...and its current speaker, Assemblyman Herb Wesson, has indicated he plans to step down in March '04.

    If Gov. Davis is recalled, a new Governor could call a special session of the legislature earlier...during which the Assembly might move to choose a new Speaker.

    Mr. Sotero told it's a "dynamic situation" and would not limit a possible Assembly vote on a new Speaker to either January or March '04.

    Published reports in the Los Angeles Times, Sacramento Bee and SF Chronicle had variously indicated Assemblywoman Oropeza is among those vying for the position.

    Assemblywoman Oropeza was first elected to the CA Assembly in 2000, and reelected last year. She was named chair of the Assembly budget committee in January 2002, a post she held during this year's acrimonious budget process.
