Biography

Dr. Susan Talamantes Eggman was elected in November 2012, and re-elected in 2014, to represent the 13th Assembly District, which draws together the San Joaquin Delta communities of Stockton, Tracy, Thornton and Mountain House, and western San Joaquin County.

Susan grew up on her family’s small almond orchard and apiary in Turlock. Though much of the open space and farmland Eggman explored on horseback as a child has since been paved over, her family is still farming, with more than 40 acres of almonds and 2000 beehives.

SACRAMENTO – Governor Jerry Brown on Thursday signed into law a bill by Assemblymember Susan Talamantes Eggman (D-Stockton) to enable the recycling of cathode ray tube (CRT) glass, found in now obsolete televisions and monitors.

The growing availability and affordability of digital flat screen TVs and monitors has rendered CRT technology obsolete in the U.S. As people upgrade to digital displays, they discard their old televisions and monitors.

SACRAMENTO – A bipartisan majority of state legislators on Wednesday approved a financial audit of the controversial Twin Tunnels project.

The audit was requested by legislators representing the San Joaquin Delta, led by Assemblymember Susan Talamantes Eggman, D-Stockton, and State Senator Lois Wolk, D-Davis. Their request followed revelations of questionable spending and accounting practices by at least one water contractor that would benefit from the project, and the announcement that the U.S. Dept. of the Interior’s Inspector General is auditing the federal Bureau of Reclamation’s financial support of the Twin Tunnels project.

The budget passed by the State Legislature Wednesday does many great things: it provides greater funding for affordable housing, builds the state’s Rainy Day Fund reserves, provides substantial new investment in higher education, and repeals the Maximum Family Grant.

The higher education provisions in total will make a great difference in the lives of Californians. The budget includes an additional $235 million for the California State University system, increases the number of slots for California students at Universities of California, caps out-of-state student enrollment, and provides another $190 million for the U.C. system. For community colleges, the budget supports two percent growth in enrollment and provides an additional $200 million to expand career technical education programs.
