Assembly Republican Leader Mike Villines in Bay Area
Mike Villines was elected in 2004 to represent the
29th Assembly District, which includes Madera,
Fresno, and nearby communities.
Previously Villines served Gov. Pete Wilson, first in
advance, and later in the Department of Fish and
Game reforming burdensome environmental issues.
He also served as chief of staff to State Sen. Chuck
Poochigian, and owned his own small business. A
graduate of CSU, Fresno, he holds a BA degree in
political science. Mike and wife Christina live in Clovis
with their three children.
Recognizing his strong negotiating skills and his
ability to lead a united Republican caucus, his
colleagues chose Villines in November 2006 to serve
as Assembly Republican Leader. The Leader
provides direction for the Republican Caucus. With his
leadership team, he plans Republican legislative
strategy. He also serves as chief negotiator for
Assembly Republicans, crafting solutions to the
critical problems facing our state.
Improving California’s business climate, reducing the
tax burden, and restoring common-sense solutions
and accountability to state government are
Assemblyman Villines’ top legislative priorities. The
Orange County Register recently lauded his fiscal
discipline stating, “it’s good to see somebody, at
least, is sticking up for the taxpayers and insisting on
a balanced budget.”
Assemblyman Villines will be speaking Monday,
March 5 to the CWLA Bay Area annual meeting.
The Bay Area will host a number of special guests in
March. Assembly Republican Leader Mike
Villines makes his first Bay Area appearance at
