Marc Levine represents the 10th State Assembly District in the State Assembly, a vibrant and beautiful district that encompasses communities in Marin and Southern Sonoma.

He is focused on representing the local interests of Marin and Sonoma, protecting our environment, supporting our schools and universities, and returning California government to long-term health after years of budget problems and government dysfunction.

Marc is part of a new generation of legislators who have worked to change the tone in Sacramento, helping to produce a balanced budget and return much needed funding to our schools. He knows there’s still much more work to do.

Previously, Marc served on the San Rafael City Council, and gained a reputation for innovative environmental policies and pragmatic solutions. He ran for the State Assembly in 2012 to ensure that there was a strong voice for local communities in Sacramento, and has worked to build a more cooperative relationship between state and local government since his election.

Marc’s election to the Assembly in 2012 was a remarkable upset, in which he and his locally-based campaign prevailed. His victory was hailed by reformers as a positive result of electoral reforms that allowed voters to choose candidates in an open primary.

Previous to serving in public office, Marc developed award-winning technology for human rights organizations, in the process raising millions in funding from the U.S. State Department, the Soros Foundation, and other funders to create technology that is now in use globally. He earned his Master’s Degree in National Security Affairs from the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, CA, and was recognized with a Special Act Award for his work promoting the elite graduate school around the world.

While earning his Political Science Degree at Cal State Northridge, Marc was elected Chair of the California State Student Association, to represent over 450,000 students on campuses across California to the State Legislature and Board of Trustees. Marc lives in San Rafael with his wife Wendy and their two children.
