California’s political prince, Gary Hart, was a master class in integrity and humility

Last week, California lost a political prince. Former state senator and assemblyman Gary K. Hart first ran for public office in 1970, as a 26-year-old anti-war candidate for Congress in Santa Barbara. Four years later, he was elected to the Assembly, beginning a legislative career that spanned 20 years. Hart left behind an enviable legacy of educational reforms and environmental protections.

Gary Hart

Gary K. Hart, former educator and legislator, passed away on January 27, 2022 at age 78 after a lengthy battle with pancreatic cancer. Hart was born in the middle of World War II and was raised by his mother in San Diego until his father returned from the South Pacific theatre when Gary was three years old. An only child, his two childhood passions were following the national news and playing competitive sports.
