You shouldn't be surprised that most Californians do not know their State Reps.
Unfortunately, mine is Lois Capps (D) 21st district, who carved out the city of San Luis Obispo from the 22nd district during redistricting to capture the largest coastal population base from State Rep McCarthy (R) (who would have been our Rep had it not been for the "custom" new district).
Abel Maldonado, who ran as a Republican, turned out to be nothing more than a liberal in sheep's clothing.
Sam Blakeslee is a Republican, and votes the party line, but has too much personal baggage.
Lois owns the "thin blue line" in the otherwise very red county.
