A native of Panama, Alex Vassar has worked at the municipal and state levels of government for the past decade. Since 2004, Alex has been the Editor of JoinCalifornia.com, which includes the web’s largest database of California election results. In 2007, he was selected to participate in the prestigious California Senate Fellows Program. Since then, Alex has worked for the City of San Jose, both houses of the California Legislature, and the State Board of Equalization.
Alex has written three books, including the recently-released California Lawmaker and The Legislators of California (which won the 2011 Notable Document Award from the NCSL) and far too many articles for OneVoter.org. He occasionally ventures into the public eye, being quoted in the Los Angeles Times, Sacramento Bee or San Francisco Chronicle, but actually spends a majority of his waking hours in a slightly-disorganized gray cubicle. Finally, as you can tell from the preceding paragraphs, Alex is adept at writing in the third-person.
