Daughter succeeds California elections chief in Legislature

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — The daughter of California’s top elections official has succeeded her mother in the state Legislature. That adds to a long tradition of frequent family connections among lawmakers. Dr. Akilah Weber won the San Diego area’s 79th Assembly District seat with more than half the vote. She's an OB-GYN with Rady Children’s Hospital and UC San Diego Health. She handily defeated four other candidates in a special election this month. On Monday she was sworn into office by California Secretary of State Shirley Weber, who resigned in January to replace Alex Padilla as the state’s top elections official. Padilla left when he was appointed to the U.S. Senate.
