About Autumn Burke
First elected in 2014, Autumn R. Burke represents the 62nd District in the California State Assembly. Her economically and ethnically diverse district is home to some of the world’s most successful technology and aerospace companies, several of the region’s most popular beaches, Los Angeles International Airport, and the Los Angeles Forum. A Los Angeles native, Assemblywoman Burke is an entrepreneur and small business owner with a proven record of business development and community outreach. She’s worked to help provide pathways to green technology and energy efficiency for neighborhoods big and small. She’s taken that same passion for innovation to Sacramento with a focus on policy to expand access to health care, education and solid jobs for all. While in Sacramento, she has achieved legislative successes to positively impact the lives of all Californians, including; extending California’s Cap & Trade market system which has become a model for the rest of the country and the world to mitigate the harmful effects of climate change while transitioning to a clean energy economy, increasing electric vehicle charging stations around the state, and convening The Lifting Children and Families Out of Poverty Task Force with the goal of reducing child poverty across the state.
