EUREKA – Assemblymember Wesley Chesbro (D – North Coast) announced today Sofia Pereira has joined his staff as a field representative in the First Assembly District's Eureka District Office.
"Sofia came to the North Coast to attend Humboldt State and she has never left," Chesbro said. "Like so many of us, she fell in love with the North Coast and decided to make it her home. While at HSU, Sofia became extremely involved in our community through her volunteerism and campus activities. I was fortunate to have Sofia as an intern in the Eureka district office last summer. Needless to say, she was an outstanding intern. I feel very fortunate that she will be working as my field representative serving the North Coast."
Ms. Pereira, a 2009 graduate of HSU, joins Field Representative John Woolley in the Eureka District Office, which provides services for Humboldt, Del Norte and Trinity counties.
In her final year at HSU Ms. Pereira served as president of the Associated Students. She also completed an internship in the Eureka District Office of Congressman Mike Thompson and has served on the Humboldt County Human Rights Commission. She currently serves as secretary-treasurer of the Six Rivers Planned Parenthood Board of Directors and is president-elect of Lost Coast Rotaract, a service club for young people, sponsored by the Rotary Club of Eureka.
"I am very pleased Sofia agreed to come to work for us and bring her tireless energy to my district staff," Chesbro added. "The ultimate beneficiaries will be the constituents she serves."
The Eureka District Office is located at 710 E. Street, Suite 150, in Downtown Eureka. The office phone number is (707) 445-7014.
