Robert A. "Bob" Wieckowski (born February 18, 1955) is an American attorney and politician in California. He currently serves California State Senate from the 10th district. Wieckowski previously served as member of the California State Assembly, vice-mayor of Fremont, and member of the Fremont city council.

Wieckowski was first elected to the California State Assembly in 2010 to represent the 20th assembly district. The district stretched from southern Alameda County into Santa Clara County. He was re-elected to the redistricted 25th district in 2012.

Wieckowski serves as chair of the Assembly Judiciary Committee. He is also a member of the Assembly Insurance, Health, and Public Employees, Retirement and Social Security committees.

In his first term in office, Wieckowski passed 24 bills through the Legislature, 21 of which were signed into law by Governor Brown. Reflecting his collaborative style, most of these bills were approved with strong, bipartisan support. Statewide organizations have selected him Legislator of the Year and Tech America named him a “Technology Champion.”

He has launched the Made in California Jobs Initiative to expand California manufacturing, invest in biotechnology research, and fight for small businesses. As part of this initiative, he is touring companies throughout his district to speak to business leaders and their workers about challenges facing their industries.

As a passionate advocate for his community, he has served on numerous boards and commissions. He previously served as Vice Mayor of the City of Fremont.

Wieckowski is a small business owner and a bankruptcy attorney. He has helped hundreds of families and seniors persevere through economic hardship, keep their homes and live with dignity. He received his B.A. from the University of California and his J.D. from Santa Clara University Law School.

Wieckowski lives in Fremont with Sue Lemke, and her son Luke.
