The California Assembly post for the 73rd District (Aliso Viejo, Dana Point , Laguna Hills, Laguna Niguel,…More Oceanside, San Clemente, San Juan Capistrano) is currently held by Republican Diane Harkey. Her local office is located in San Juan Capistrano in a large building less than half a mile south from Capistrano Valley High School.
She was first elected to the California State Assembly in 2008. She is a member of the Appropriations Committee, Banking and Finance Committee, Budget Committee, and Revenue and Taxation Committee, as well as the Select Committee on the Census.
Although Harkey spends a majority of time in Sacramento, the San Juan Capistrano office is staffed with legislative assistants who meet with her constituents to talk about policy ideas and respond to problems with state agencies.
