State Senator Andreas Borgeas On 'Gavin's Law,' HSR, And How Local And State Politics Differ

Apr 9, 2019

Before State Senator Andreas Borgeas was elected to to represent the 8th District in November, he spent time as a Fresno city councilmember, and later a county supervisor. Now, he represents a much larger region that extends as far north as Sacramento County, and as far south as Tulare County. But Borgeas says it was his time in local politics, occupying non-partisan positions, that taught him how to work with colleagues and seek solutions.

Listen to the interview above to hear Borgeas talk about the legislation he’s prioritizing, including a law to strengthen penalties for hit-and-run accidents, and his thoughts on Governor Gavin Newsom’s limited High Speed Rail plans.
