Cole Reed
District Representative, California Senate President Pro Tempore Toni Atkins

Cole Reed has lived in numerous cities and states, but always considered San Diego to be his home. He is proud to have transferred from San Diego City College to UC Berkeley, where he graduated in 2019 with a bachelor’s degree in Political Science and minor in Public Policy. As a student at Berkeley, Cole received the merit-based Travers Undergraduate Scholarship in Ethics and Politics.

One particular issue that Cole is concerned with and passionate about is the disappearing prospects for economic security and upward social mobility in the United States. Through public service, he aspires to dedicate his life to protect society's most vulnerable populations and help create a compassionate society where future generations have an equal opportunity to pursue their dreams.

Cole currently serves as a District Representative for Senate President pro Tempore Toni G. Atkins. In this capacity, he acts as a liaison to the coastal communities of California’s 39th State Senate District, manages the constituent casework system, and reports on key trends and issues impacting the San Diego Region. In addition, Cole is responsible for covering a policy portfolio consisting of environmental, transportation, and veterans issues.

Cole was previously appointed as a Constituent Affairs Representative for the Office of Governor Gavin Newsom and worked as a Student Director for the Cal-in-Sacramento Fellowship. In his free time, Cole enjoys attending concerts, cooking, watching films, taking care of his plants, reading history, and learning to play the guitar.
