The Honorable Tom Lackey 34th Assembly District
Tom Lackey has represented California’s 34th Assembly District since 2014. The 34th Assembly District includes parts of Los Angeles, Kern and San Bernardino Counties, including the cities of Lancaster, Palmdale, Big Bear, Barstow, Victorville, 29 Palms, and Edwards Air Force Base. Before joining the Assembly, Tom served on the Palmdale Elementary School District Board of Trustees and the Palmdale City Council. After high school, he served as a missionary for two years before he earned a bachelor’s degree in special education from Utah State University. Tom later worked as an elementary special education teacher before beginning a 28-year career with the California Highway Patrol. He lives in Palmdale with his two children, Justin and Jani.
During his time as a State Legislator, Tom has championed successful efforts to combat the growing problem of drugged driving and provide increased state funding to support programs for individuals with developmental disabilities.
