Assemblymember Kevin McCarty served four years as the District 7 representative. After redistricting, he ran for the District seat and won. McCarty has confronted a diverse range of issues during his time in the Capitol. These include housing affordability, the opioid crisis, and expanding preschool access for low-income families. He also serves in the California Legislative Black Caucus and has been working through both this group and legislation to bridge racial divides.

After narrowly losing in the 2010 Democratic primary to Roger Dickinson, McCarty didn’t face a serious challenge in four general elections for his District 7 seat, receiving at least 69% of the vote each time. In the District 6 race, he beat Republican Cathy Cook with 50.038 percent of the vote.


Except for a brief stretch for college in Southern California, McCarty has pretty much never left Sacramento. From growing up in the city to working for local agencies to serving a decade on Sacramento City Council prior to his assembly election in 2014, McCarty has dedicated much of his life to serving his hometown.

He has a bachelor’s degree in political science from California State University, Long Beach as well as a master’s in public policy and administration from CSUS. He and his wife live in Sacramento’s Elmhurst neighborhood, near UC Davis Medical Center with their twin daughters.

Select Legislation

AB 1506: McCarty was one of nearly three-dozen Assembly members following the killing of George Floyd by Minneapolis police to introduce the Deadly Force Accountability Act. This bill, according to McCarty’s legislative website “would provide independent, accountable and transparent oversight of police deadly-force,” establishing officer investigative and police practices divisions within the California Department of Justice. Gov. Newsom signed the bill into law on Sept. 30, 2020. 

ACA 6: While California has long let people in jail or on probation vote, it formerly excluded people on parole from exercising this right. McCarty helped change this with Assembly Constitutional Amendment No. 6, filed with the Secretary of State in June 2020, which also restored voting rights to people deemed mentally incompetent.

District boundaries and office locations

McCarty’s district lies within Sacramento County, primarily in the city of Sacramento but also including the Antelope, Arden-Arcade, Carmichael, Elverta, and Rio Linda communities.
