Looking back on her eight years as a state senator representing the 19th District, Hannah-Beth Jackson, D-Santa Barbara, summed up the experience as “gratifying.”

Term limited after this year, her senate seat will be taken up by Monique Limon, currently the Democrat assemblywoman for the 37th Assembly District.

In an interview with the News-Press on Monday morning, Sen. Jackson said she is particularly proud of legislation that she passed in three key areas, environmental protection, equal pay, and pharmaceutical industry regulation.
