The Director of the Center for California Studies, Tim Hodson, died this morning in Sacramento. In addition to his service at the Center, Hodson been a member of California’s Fair Political Practices Commission and a long-time State Senate staffer.
A year and a half ago, Hodson asked me to run a list of the legislators who had served during the years that he worked in the Senate and at the Center. The updated total (through today) was 551 legislators including;
- 90% of the women who have ever served in the legislature.
- 85% of the members who have served since the legislature became full-time in 1967.
Hodson was a mentor to many in the Capitol community, including the Editor of this website. His advice and insight will be missed.
