Dinner with a Dem: Fiona Ma

The Silicon Valley Asian Pacific American Democratic Club (SVAPADC) introduces "Dinner with a Dem"! 


Each month before the regularly scheduled SVAPADC Board of Directors meeting, the club will be meeting with Democratic leaders for a dinner conversation. January's special guest is State Board of Equalization District 2 candidate, Fiona Ma. Fiona Ma is running in District 2 (to represent nearly 10 million people in 24 coastal counties stretching from Oregon to Santa Barbara -- including the Bay Area) to succeed Board Member Betty Yee when her term expires next year.

The California State Board of Equalization (BOE) is the only elected tax board in America. The 5,000 person tax agency affects every taxpayer in California and has broad regulatory and adjudicatory powers. The BOE administers the sales and use tax, assesses property tax on electric, gas, and telephone companies, as well as other utilities, and provides guidance to the 58 county assessors.

Fiona Ma recently completed her maximum six year term in the California State Assembly representing the 12th Assembly District from November 2006 to 2012. She was the 112th woman elected to the California Legislature and the first Asian woman to serve as Speaker pro Tempore since the formation of the Legislature in 1850.
