Zeta Phi Beta Soror Sydney Kamlager Just Became The Only Black Woman in California’s State Senate
Democratic Assemblywoman Sydney Kamlager, a member of Zeta Phi Beta, will be sworn in to the California State Senate this month after winning two-thirds of the vote in a special election to fill the state’s vacant 30th Senate District seat.
Kamlager received 67.67% of the vote in last Tuesday’s election, giving her the majority needed to avoid a runoff, according to semi-official results released by the Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk.
This will make Kamlager the only Black woman currently holding a seat in the California State Senate.
“I’ve seen what happens when we don’t have a seat at the table — policies and budgets fail us,” Kamlager said. “I know representation matters. And having a Black woman, a working mother, in the state Senate is critically important for perspective in the fight for recovery, justice and equity.”
Kamlager is a Spring 1994 initiate of the Gamma Lambda Chapter of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. at the University of Southern California.
Her sorority’s IHQ account took to social media to celebrate her win.
