Speaker Pro Tempore, California Assembly

Jim Wood

Assemblyman for California's Second District and Former Mayor of Healdsburg

Assemblymember Wood was elected in November 2014 to represent California’s 2nd Assembly District, following two terms as Mayor of Healdsburg. He has lived in Northern California since 1987, when he opened his family dental practice in Cloverdale and has worked to make local government more effective through reorganizing city departments to increase efficiency, balancing the budget, and streamlining the building permit process. His priorities now are health care, economic development, environmental protection, and fiscal reform. In his first term in the Assembly, Wood authored 21 bills that were signed into law, including the Marijuana Watershed Protection Act (AB 243), which serves as the environmental cornerstone in California’s Medical Marijuana Regulation and Safety Act.
