Elected to the California State Assembly in 2008, Assemblyman Curt Hagman is honored to represent the residents of the 60th District. The district includes all, or portions of Anaheim, Chino Hills, Diamond Bar, Industry, La Habra, La Habra Heights, La Mirada, Orange, Rowland Heights, San Dimas, Villa Park, Walnut, Whittier, and Yorba Linda.
As a newly elected legislator, he has already been recognized for his leadership by his selection as Assistant Republican Leader and Republican Floor Leader and as the Vice-chair of the Public Safety Committee and a member of the Rules Committee for the Assembly.
Curt has an extensive resume of public service prior to his state office election. His local government experience started as a Parks/Recreation Commissioner in Chino Hills, which sparked a growing passion for public service. Curt was elected to a seat on the City Council in 2004, and served as Mayor in 2008. During this time he worked on a multitude of regional committees which has given him exposure to numerous issues facing his constituency.
Curt is a founding member of the Community Volunteers Assisting Law Enforcement and has served as Chairman since its inception in 1998. This organization consists of citizen volunteers from 50 Police/Sheriff Departments who meet on a quarterly basis for training and informational meetings. Over the years, he has volunteered for the San Bernardino County Sheriff in a number of positions and was named its Volunteer of the Year in 1999. He is a benefactor to the Explorers, Reserves, Citizens Patrol, and other station activities.
Curt is also a strong supporter and benefactor of numerous children's and high school clubs and teams throughout the community. As a father, he served as a Board Member on his children's PTA. He is past president of the Kiwanis Club of Chino Hills (Hixon Award winner) and on the Board of Directors for the Chino Valley YMCA. Over the years, his work on behalf of the League of California Cities earned him the distinguished James S. Thalman Memorial Public Service Award.
He is especially proud of his involvement within the San Bernardino County Workforce Investment Board, which is charged with addressing major workforce issues in the county. As Chairman, Curt's role was to convene appropriate parties around issues, create dialogue, and generate innovative solutions in order to achieve a business competitive advantage.
This same attitude of innovation and "outside-the-box" thinking served him well on the city council as he secured an additional share of the property tax for the City, and funding for the City's first Community Center. His rapport with the elected county officials and staff led to property swaps that were beneficial to all parties.
Curt owns Apex Bail Bonds with 3 offices in Southern California. He earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology at UCLA and is especially proud of his Eagle Scout Award from the Boy Scouts. While at UCLA, he met his wife Grace and together they have two children, Jonathan and Elizabeth. Grace received her law degree from Western State University College and currently works for a county supervisor. They enjoy their life in Chino Hills and moved there for the rural atmosphere and the many family-oriented activities. He and his family attend Inland Hills Church.
