(SACRAMENTO) – Jim Cooper (D-Elk Gove) was sworn in as the representative for State Assembly  District 9, which includes the cities of Sacramento, Elk Grove, Lodi and Galt. The ceremony was held on the Assembly Floor at the State Capitol.

“It is an honor to serve the people of the 9th District,” said Cooper. “I grew up in Sacramento and I am ready to work to ensure small businesses thrive here and throughout the state.
