Assemblymember Mike Gipson


Since his election to represent California’s 64th Assembly District in 2014, Assemblymember Mike Gipson has worked with his constituents on everything from criminal justice reform to affordable housing. 

In 2015, Gipson was appointed by Assembly Speaker Emeritus Anthony Rendon to serve as Assembly Democratic Caucus Chair. He served until July 2023, making him the caucus’ longest-serving chair in California history. 

He has also been an active voice and champion of The Council of State Governments. In 2023, Gipson served as a regional officer for our western region, where he worked closely with CSG West Director Edgar Ruiz. 

“Being elected as the 2024 National Vice Chair of The Council of State Governments is both a tremendous honor and responsibility,” Gipson said. “I am committed to fostering collaboration among state officials and leveraging our diverse perspectives to address the pressing issues facing our nation. Together, we will build bridges, forge solutions, and ensure a brighter future for all. I am grateful for the opportunity and excited to embark on this journey of service and leadership.”
