Das Williams Candidly Discusses His Re-Election Bid For State Assembly

Das Williams, California Assemblymember from the 35th District

Assemblymember Das Williams was elected to the California Assembly in November 2010.

Das previously served as a member of the Santa Barbara City Council from 2003-2010.

Das has been an active participant in numerous community endeavors.  He served for years as a community organizer for CAUSE—a Ventura based non-profit, and headed the group’s efforts to stop a proposed big-box retail development in Ventura.

Das also served as a Trustee of Peabody Charter School.

Until his election, Das served as a national board member of the National Organization for Women (NOW), and taught at Antioch University in Santa Barbara.

Prior to his public service, Das worked as a junior high school teacher, as well as a legislative aide to California State Assemblymember Hannah Beth Jackson, also of District 35.

Das holds a Master’s degree in Environmental Science & Management, with a focus on water pollution, planning processes, and land-use law at UC Santa Barbara’s Bren School of Environmental Science.

In the Assembly, Das is focused on:

  1. Reforming the state budget process,
  2. Ensuring that California children have access to a world class education,
  3. Fixing the state’s dysfunctional healthcare system, and
  4. Protecting the environment, primarily through reducing our state’s reliance on oil and coal.
