Corbett Assigned to Senate Ethics Committee

State Senator Ellen Corbett was assigned to the recently revived Senate Ethics Committee. Corbett is the Chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee and only the second freshman senator to chair the Senate Judiciary Committee (the first was John Burton.) Corbett was also appointed to the Senate Appropriations Committee and the Senate Transportation & Housing Committee.

According to Capitol Weekly, the members of the Ethics Committee "enjoy reputations as the goody-goodies of the Senate." The other members are Chair Alan Lowenthal, D-Long Beach, Vice-Chair Dick Ackerman, R-Irvine, and Tom McClintock, R-Thousand Oaks.

Ellen Corbett was elected to the San Leandro City Council in 1990, was elected Mayor of San Leandro in 1994, and went on to serve in the California State Assembly from 1998 until she was termed out in 2004.
