Jackie Goldberg (born November 18, 1944) is an American politician and teacher who is currently a member of the Los Angeles Unified School District Board of Education, representing District 5.[1][2]

Early life and education[edit]

Goldberg was born in the Los Angeles area on November 18, 1944. Goldberg attended the University of California, Berkeley, where she was a member of SLATE and a major contributor to the Free Speech Movement.[citation needed] She went on to get a master's degree in education from the University of Chicago. Goldberg is Jewish.[3]

LAUSD Board of Education (1983–1991; 2019—)[edit]

In 1983, Goldberg was elected to the LAUSD Board of Education, where she served for two terms. In 2019, Goldberg announced that she would be running to be a member of the Board, this time for District 5 after its previous member, Ref Rodriguez, left due to an accounting scandal. She faced Heather Repenning and was re-elected to the LAUSD's Board of Education.[4][5]

Los Angeles City Council (1993–2001)[edit]

In 1993, Goldberg was elected to the 13th District seat on the Los Angeles City Council, becoming the first out lesbian woman to hold office on the City Council. She was re-elected without opposition in 1997.

California State Assembly (2001–2007)[edit]

In 2000, Goldberg was elected to her first of three terms in the California State Assembly representing the state's 45th district. In this capacity, Goldberg served as chair of the Assembly Education Committee and drafted numerous education bills. Goldberg was the author of legislation which gave LGBT couples in California the rights and responsibilities of marriage, except for those involving income tax legislation. She was re-elected in 2002 and 2004. Term limits prevented her from seeking a fourth term.[citation needed]

Personal life[edit]

Goldberg is openly lesbian.[6] She married longtime partner Sharon Stricker in 2008; they have resided together in Echo Park since 1967.[7] The couple has one son.[citation needed]
