Assemblyman Eng sworn in for third and final term in State Assembly

Assemblyman Mike Eng, whose West San Gabriel Valley district includes Alhambra, took the oath of that office for the third and final time on Sunday. Due to term limits, he is ineligible to run again. Eng, with his wife Congresswoman Judy Chu at his side, pledged that he would use the term to focus on budgetary issues and tax regulation.

"As chair of banking and finance, I really want to address the foreclosure crisis," Eng said, according to the Pasadena Star-News. Another key area of interest, the paper reported, will be improving enforcement of tax laws by tackling the underground economy. "There's an estimated $6.5 billion a year that California is owed but doesn't collect – that's about one-fourth of the entire budget deficit right now," Eng said. 

Congresswoman Chu and Assemblyman Eng at an Alhambra City Council meetingA native of Hawaii, Eng studied law at UCLA and is the founding partner of the immigration law firm Eng & Nishimura. Like his wife, who proceeded him in his post in the State Assembly, his entrance into politics was his local community. Both served on the Monterey Park City Council and as mayor and have been active in volunteer roles, with Chu focusing on education and Eng with the library and providing free immigration services.

As an elected official, Eng has chosen conservation, including "green" job creation and advocating for groundwater cleanup in the San Gabriel Valley, among his priorities. The California League of Conservation Voters gives him a 97% lifetime voting record. Other top legislative priorities include addressing California’s transportation infrastructure needs, advocating for stronger consumer protections, eliminating health disparities amongst underserved communities, and confronting hates crimes.

The 49th Assembly district also includes El Monte, Monterey Park, Rosemead, San Gabriel, San Marino, and South El Monte.
