Bera’s district includes the community of Herald, plus Elk Grove and eastern Sacramento County. He has been appointed to the House Committee on Foreign Affairs and to the Science, Space and Technology Committee.
“In an increasingly complex global landscape, relationships with other nations have tangible effects here at home and we need strategic thinking to guide our foreign policy in the 21st century,” Bera said in a news release. Additionally, the Sacramento region is uniquely situated to benefit from opening up new markets for our goods and services around the world. That would help create jobs here at home.”
A lifelong Californian and first-generation American, Bera is a medical doctor and the only Indian-American serving in Congress. He and his wife Janine, live in Elk Grove with their 15-year-old daughter, Sydra.
