Congressman Alan Lowenthal was first elected to represent California’s 47th Congressional District in 2012. After teaching psychology at California State University for decades, Rep. Lowenthal embarked on a career in elected office, beginning in 1992 on the Long Beach City Council, and continuing through the California State Assembly, and the California State Senate before eventually seeking election to Congress. The Congressman sits on the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure and the House Committee on Natural Resources.
Rep. Lowenthal has been a JStreetPAC endorsee since his first campaign for Congress in 2012, and is one of J Street’s most vocal allies on the Hill. Last session, he supported the entire J Street legislative agenda, and this cycle he introduced J Street’s first legislative priority, H.Res. 326, which gets Congress on the record reaffirming support for the two-state solution and opposing annexation and settlement expansion.
