Ken Calvert, a lifelong resident of Riverside County and 17-year small business owner in the restaurant and real estate industries, represents the 42nd Congressional District of southern California. Calvert was born on June 8, 1953 and attended neighborhood public schools, graduating from Corona High School in 1971. He attended two years at Chaffey College, in Alta Loma, and then enrolled at San Diego State University, where he graduated in 1975 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics. Ken is a Protestant and is involved in several local community volunteer organizations. The 42nd District encompasses the western edge of Riverside County including the cities of Eastvale, Norco, Corona, Lake Elsinore, Wildomar, Canyon Lake, Menifee, Murrieta and a portion of Temecula. Rep. Calvert was first elected to the House in 1992 and was part of the historic "Contract with America" in 1994 that swept the House to Republican control for the first time in 40 years.

In the 115th Congress, Rep. Calvert continues to serve on the House Appropriations Committee where he is the Chairman of the Interior and the Environment Subcommittee. Rep. Calvert is also the Vice-Chairman of the Defense Subcommittee and a member of the Energy and Water Subcommittee. Rep. Calvert was also selected to serve as the Chairman of the California Republican Delegation.

In the 115th Congress, Rep. Calvert's legislative priorities includes- enacting pro-growth policies that will help strengthen our economy; reducing our national debt; reforming our tax code; supporting our military around the world; strengthening our borders and making the use of E-Verify mandatory for all employers in the U.S.; creating long-term solutions to California's water challenges; reducing the time it takes to build infrastructure projects by making common sense, bi-partisan reforms to our environmental laws; and, much more.
