Janet D Foster
Hello and thank you for visiting my website. I am Janet Foster and I am running as a solutions Democrat for the California Assembly. I have lived in Long Beach for 18 years and have been involved in political activism for well over 25 years, the past 20 years as a volunteer on local, state and national initiatives for non-partisan organizations, as well as platform issues for the Democratic Party. I won my first elected position on the Los Angeles County Democratic Central Committee representing Assembly District 70 two years ago and have been tirelessly working on behalf of my community ever since. One of my passions during this life changing experience has been collaborating with multiple housing advocacy groups, including CA YIMBY, to lobby lawmakers on solutions to California’s housing issues and fight for reasonable-cost housing rentals, as well as fair access to homeownership for the middle and working classes.
My professional background is focused in the healthcare industry for 25 years where I have held leadership roles in multi-regional medical groups, hospitals and within national health plans. As part of my hobby interests, I also worked as a freelance journalist and podcast host. As a supporter of Single-Payer health care access, I am well versed in the business of healthcare and will be an asset for leading the movement towards an inclusive healthcare system as a human right, while being a voice of reason to ensure decisions make economic sense.
I was born and raised on the east coast, living in both Connecticut and Florida. I graduated from the University of South Florida with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Communications. I moved to Long Beach from Miami after receiving a job opportunity that literally changed my life, it made me a Californian. I fell in love with Long Beach and I established my home here for many reasons including the city’s vibrant diversity and the activities the area has to offer and, of course, the coastal shoreline. I also hold an MBA from Saint Mary’s College of California.
