The California State Assembly’s 4th District is represented by Cecilia Aguiar-Curry, a Democrat. After narrowly receiving the most votes of any candidate in the 2016 primary, Aguiar-Curry has cruised to election every general election since, winning by an average of about 35 percentage points each time.
Aguiar-Curry has lived much of her life in Winters, a small rural city that now numbers around 7,000 residents. In 2006, Aguiar-Curry was elected to the Winters City Council, eventually becoming the first woman to serve as mayor there.
Aguiar-Curry has long been an advocate for her city. Shortly before her council election in 2006, the Sacramento Bee reported that Aguiar-Curry “thinks that researching other small communities that have experienced growth and boosting city staff” would prepare Winters for the future. Five years later, when the Yolo County Board of Supervisors was weighing a redistricting plan to lump Winters and half of Davis together, Aguiar-Curry told the Bee, “Winters seems to be the sacrificial lamb.”
She was elected to the State Assembly in 2016 with the Bee reporting that a group including oil companies and real estate interests had spent $1.9 million to support her campaign: “The cash cascade reprises an increasingly common interest-group strategy of elevating business-friendly Democrats in districts dominated by Democratic voters.”
Aside from politics, Aguiar-Curry co-owns an 80-acre walnut orchard with her brothers, according to her Assembly bio. She earned a degree from San Jose State University in 1985 and also appears to have attended Chico State in the 1970s.
Her Assembly bio also notes that she lives near her childhood home with longtime partner Larry Harris and has two daughters and a stepson.
