Assemblymember Marie Waldron – 75th Assembly District
Marie Waldron has been a member of the California State Assembly since being elected to that position in 2012. During the past two decades, Marie has been very involved in North San Diego County. As a local business owner, she understands the economic impacts of burdensome government regulation and spending on the taxpayers and small businesses.
As an elected official since 1998, she has fought for fiscal restraint, revitalizing our neighborhoods and is a strong supporter of public safety.
Having served as Escondido’s Deputy Mayor, and as a board member for the North County Transit District, she was the city’s representative to the League of California Cities, the Regional Solid Waste Association Board, and Escondido’s Investment subcommittee.
Her commitment to her city has been honored by the Escondido Rotary Club with their Outstanding Community Service Award.
Marie and her husband, Steve Waldron, have owned and operated ‘Top End Tees Screen Printing and Apparel’ in Escondido for 20 years. Waldron has been a member of the Escondido Chamber of Commerce and the Downtown Business Association for many years. She was appointed and served 4 years as California’s Honorary Chairman of the Business Advisory Council which advocated on behalf of California’s
small businesses to Congress.
Active in the San Diego region, Waldron was a founding member of the San Diego chapter of CWLA (California Women’s Leadership Association), is a member of the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association, and the American Legion Auxiliary.
Marie’s husband, Steve, is the founder of the successful “Cruisin’ Grand” hotrod event held in downtown Escondido for the past 14 years. Marie has a B.S. degree from St. John’s University and has done graduate work at UCSD and SDSU. The Waldrons have a 13-year old son.
