California Assemblyman Sebastian Ridley-Thomas Resigns
California Assemblyman Sebastian Ridley-Thomas resigned the California’s 54th State Assembly District seat, effective December 31, due to health issues.
A special election will be held to fill the seat. No date has been set.
Ridley-Thomas is the third assemblyman to resign in the last month. His resignation leaves Democrats with 52 of the Assembly’s 80 members, which is two votes short of what once had been a two-thirds supermajority.
