SACRAMENTO – Assemblymember Cheryl R. Brown was sworn in yesterday by The Honorable Mary Lou Villar de Longoria, Judge, Los Angeles Superior Court at the California State Capitol in Sacramento. Brown was elected on November 6 to represent the newly drawn 47th Assembly District.


Recently, Brown named Larry G. Broussard as her chief of staff. Broussard is a former legislative consultant and aide to Assembly Speaker Willie Brown, Senate Pro Tem David Roberti and former chief of staff to Assemblymembers Sandré Swanson and Jerome Horton and Congressman Matthew Martinez.
Broussard also served as Assistant Dean and Director of Admissions & Special Programs at the University of California, San Francisco, School of Dentistry and former Director of Special Projects at the University of California, Davis, School of Medicine.


“I’m proud to announce that Larry Broussard will serve as our new chief of staff,” said Assemblymember Brown. “Larry is a San Bernardino native, and has over 20 years of experience in the state legislature and education administration. His proven track record of quality leadership will be an asset for our district.”

Brown also announced that Shannon McKinley, a former senior consultant to Assemblymember Sandré Swanson will join her staff as Legislative Director. Among McKinley’s key accomplishments includes staffing AB 2278, a bill signed by Governor Jerry Brown in July 2012. This bill authorizes the governing board of a qualifying school district, after one year has passed following the qualifying school district’s acceptance of an emergency loan, to conduct an annual advisory evaluation of the school district’s state-appointed administrator.

“Shannon is a great addition to the team. I’m confident in her ability to develop and advance legislation that will address our district’s specific needs including economic recovery and growth.”

Assemblymember Brown represents the 47th Assembly District, which includes San Bernardino, Rialto, Colton, Bloomington, Muscoy, Fontana, and Grand Terrace.

    Assemblymember Cheryl Brown has sponsored SB 516. I looked over SB 516. Taking a few hawk nests off of power poles has nothing the real intentions of this Bill. Corporations want to give themselves a special waiver so they can continue their onslaught against the wildlife impacted by their projects. Especially those connected with the construction of Wind Energy projects. Cheryl Brown is probably not aware that Southern California Edison has been slaughtering countless numbers of raptors for decades with their wind projects. I also suspect that Assembly member Cheryl Brown of Fontana probably doesn’t have a clue and she is being used by the industry. She should read up on the horrific environmental impacts caused by wind energy, look up on the profits made from these projects, and think about the ultimate costs to taxpayers. She should then kill this slimy Bill and happily return any donations she may have received connected to this disgraceful industry.

    As an Assembly member Cheryl Brown has sponsored AB 516, not SB 516 as I had written.
