The Carlmont Junior State of America (JSA) invited California Assemblyman Rich Gordon Oct. 28 to tell students how he took an unexpected, but passion filled turn into politics.
Gordon worked his way through local politics with five years on the San Mateo County Board of Education and 13 years on the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors. He was elected to the Assembly in 2010 and explained his whole political career could be traced to his religious roots.
