San Diego Democrat chosen as next Assembly speaker
March 18, 2014, 05:00 AM The Associated Press

SACRAMENTO — The Assembly has voted to make San Diego Democrat Toni Atkins its speaker, replacing John Perez.

Perez says a transition date has not been set but that it will be before summer. The Los Angeles Democrat is termed out this year and is running for state controller.

Atkins was elected to run the 80-member chamber Monday by unanimous voice vote. She told her fellow lawmakers that improving education, boosting the economy and addressing homelessness would be her top priorities.

She won her seat in 2010 after serving on the San Diego City Council and has two years remaining before her term expires.

Atkins will be the third woman to lead the Assembly.
