Tim Leslie, Republican, served in the California Legislature from 1987 to 2006. Leslie first ran for the California State
Assembly 5th District in 1984 against Democrat Jean M. Moorhead and was defeated by 1,700 votes. Two years later Moorhead
chose not to run and Leslie won his first legislative election representing the 5th Assembly District in the California State
Assembly. From 1987-1991 Leslie represented the 5th Assembly District, which included northern Sacramento and southern Placer
County. In a special election in May of 1991 Leslie was elected to the California State Senate representing the 1st Senate
District after John Doolittle left the California Senate for a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives. The California
1st Senate District was one of the biggest districts in California running along the eastern border from Oregon down the Nevada
border to Mammoth Lakes, and across the foothills to include the eastern portion of the Sacramento Valley. It includes the
counties of Alpine, Amador, Calaveras, El Dorado, Modoc, Mono, Lassen, Nevada, Placer, Plumas, Sierra, Yuba, and most of Butte.
Leslie served as the representative of the California Senate 1st District from 1991-2000. Because of term limits in the Senate,
in 2000, Tim Leslie moved back to the Assembly representing California’s 4th Assembly District. Another large district, the
4th Assembly District runs along the Nevada border from Lake Tahoe to Mammoth Lakes and across the foothills of the Mother
Lode. It includes Amador City, Angels Camp, Auburn, Colfax, Ione, Jackson, Lincoln, Loomis, Mammoth Lakes, Placerville, Plymouth,
Rocklin, Roseville, South Lake Tahoe, and Sutter Creek. Leslie served in the 4th Assembly District from 2001-2006, when term
limits ended his time in the Legislature.
