Chad Mayes was first elected to the Assembly in November 2014 to represent the 42nd District in the California State Assembly. This Inland Empire district encompasses parts of San Bernardino and Riverside counties.

In the Assembly, Mayes quickly developed a solid reputation as a dynamic, hard-working and effective leader and was elected Republican Leader by his peers after only 10 months in office. As a self-described "governing conservative" he seeks to identify pragmatic policy solutions that will better the lives of Californians and ensure that the state remains a global leader in the 21st Century. As Republican Leader, Mayes negotiated for his caucus with the Governor and legislative Democrats on major policy and fiscal issues, leads its political and campaign efforts, and is its principal spokesperson. While no longer leader, he regularly travels up and down the state meeting with a wide variety of stakeholders, groups and businesses to better understand issues and build consensus for key policies. In his district, Mayes has earned high marks as a consensus builder on issues of regional concern.

While he is involved in a myriad of policy issues, Mayes is most passionate about housing, transportation and reducing poverty through education, job creation, and economic expansion. Recognizing that civic engagement cannot begin until the public understands what its government is doing, he advocates for more open government at all levels.

Prior to being elected to the Assembly, Mayes was active in local government, serving three terms on the Yucca Valley Town Council and as a board member of both the San Bernardino Associated Governments and the League of California Cities. Professionally, Mayes was a financial planner, small business owner and Chief of Staff to the Chair of the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors. This combination of experience has made him a strong advocate for local control and fiscal responsibility.

Mayes is a graduate of Liberty University and is a lifelong resident of Yucca Valley.
