Vows to make high quality public education for all a top priority

(SACRAMENTO) — Professor and small businessman Anthony Rendon (D-Lynwood) today was sworn in as the Assemblymember for the 63rd Assembly District, which includes the communities of Bell, Cudahy, Hawaiian Gardens, Lakewood, Long Beach, Lynwood, Maywood, Paramount and South Gate.
