Biography[edit]

Wieckowski was first elected to the California State Assembly in 2010 to represent the 20th Assembly District, then the 25th Assembly District in 2012 after redistricting. Before being elected to the Legislature, he served as Vice-Mayor and a City Councilman in Fremont.

Wieckowski served as chair of the Assembly Judiciary Committee. He was 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 Jerry Brown. He launched the Made in California Jobs Initiative to expand California manufacturing, invest in biotechnology research, and fight for small businesses.
