Connie Conway was elected to the California Assembly on Nov. 4, 2008 and began her first two-year term on Dec. 1, 2008.

Since taking office Assemblywoman Connie Conway has been appointed to seven key committees (more than any other Assemblymember) where she has been able to utilize her vast experience. Connie currently serves as Vice-Chair to the Assembly Appropriations Committee and as a member on the Agriculture, Business and Professions, and Health Committees. She has also served as Vice-Chair of the Assembly Higher Education Committee and as a member on the Transportation and the Public Employees, Retirement and Social Security Committees. In Addition, Assemblywoman Conway has been appointed by Assembly Speaker Karen Bass to the California Commission on Disability Access.

Prior to coming to the Legislature Connie served as a Tulare County Supervisor for eight years, where she was Chair of the Board, and also served as chair of the California Partnership for the San Joaquin Valley, an appointment she received from Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger. The 28-member partnership, which includes state agency secretaries, elected officials and members of the private sector, works to improve the economy and quality of life by making policy recommendations to the governor.

Connie is a past state president of the Cities, Counties and Schools Partnership and in 2006, Connie served as President of the California State Association of Counties, which represents 58 counties at the state and federal levels. She also served as a director of the National Association of Counties, chaired its membership committee, and worked on its Economic Development Committee.

In 2007, the Tulare Chamber of Commerce honored her as Woman of the Year. One person who nominated her for the award wrote: "She is a relentlessly dedicated public official who demonstrates her integrity by working - literally - seven days a week to serve her constituents. ... She is personable, informal, humble, candid and charismatic. She seeks advice. She answers questions directly. She explains her positions well. Without exaggeration, she answers her cellular phone from dawn to midnight. This accessible, down-to-earth leadership style has earned Connie the respect of her constituents, and has developed allies across the state. She builds consensus because people know her beliefs and thought processes."

Connie has served as a director for the California Public Employee Post Employment Benefits Commission; the Tulare County Employees' Retirement Association; the San Joaquin Valley Rail Committee; the California State Association of Counties' Excess Insurance Authority; and the California Elected Women's Association for Education and Research.

Prior to her election as Supervisor, Connie served for six years as a director of the Tulare Redevelopment Agency and was a district manager of CorVel Corp., a nationally certified health care organization specializing in workers compensation disability management.

Connie was born in Bakersfield on Sept. 25, 1950. Her father, John R. Conway, served as a Tulare County supervisor from 1981 until his death in 1991. Her mother, Clara Conway was recently honored for 40 years of employment at Tulare District Hospital.
