Gil Cedillo, Los Angeles City Councilmember, 1st District
Gilbert Cedillo has proven himself a public servant who brings people together to make strong public policy. In May, 2013, Gil Cedillo was elected to the Los Angeles Council, representing the First Council District. He was re-elected in 2017 with an overwhelming margin to continue serving the people of CD1.
Councilmember Gil Cedillo brings 15 years of legislative experience to the City Council. Having served as a member of the State Assembly and Senate, he authored over a hundred bills that were signed into law by four different Governors that include Pete Wilson, Gray Davis, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Jerry Brown. Most were groundbreaking and innovative pieces of legislation that included cleaning up California’s brownfields, state oversight and fair share zoning for transitional and emergency homeless shelters (SB 2), workers’ right to organize (AB 1889), Downtown Rebound (AB 2870), and the California Dream Act (AB 130 and 131). His long running legislation to grant drivers' licenses to undocumented immigrants (AB60) was finally signed into law by Governor Brown on October 3, 2013, nine months after he was termed out of state office.
