Medina’s Statement on His Last Term in the Legislature

For immediate release:

RIVERSIDE— Today, Assemblymember Jose Medina (D-Riverside), Chair of the Assembly Higher Education Committee, issued the following statement:
“I am announcing today that I have decided not to seek a sixth term of office in the California State Assembly for the 2023-24 session. It has been the privilege of a lifetime serving my community and the people of the State of California as an elected Assemblymember representing District 61.
I am happy to pass the torch to our next generation of leaders. My hope, from my work with students and our young people, is that they too, are inspired to run for public office.
I am especially grateful to my loving and supportive wife, Linda, my staff, and our incredible district of Riverside, Moreno Valley, and Perris. My intention in my last year of office is to fight tirelessly to finish the job that I set out to do—marking another year of historic investments and transformative legislation that will make California the state it ought to be.
Thank you to my friends, my neighbors, and my constituents for putting your faith in me for the past 10 years and for giving me the greatest honor for any Californian.”
