The district is currently represented by Democrat Grace Napolitano.

The district was previously represented by Judy Chu; however, in the 2012 United States elections, due to redistricting, Chu ran for Representative in California's 27th congressional district, while Grace Napolitano ran in the 32nd district, having been displaced from the 38th district.
