Welcome to the beautiful 18th Congressional District of California. Located between the cities of San Francisco, Santa Cruz and San Jose, the 18th District includes portions of San Mateo, Santa Clara and Santa Cruz counties. A list of cities and communities located in our District is below.
The 18th District is the birthplace of Silicon Valley, world center of the information technology and biotechnology industries. It was here in 1939 in a Palo Alto garage that William Hewlett and David Packard started their firm and today, sixty-one years later, Larry Page and Sergey Brin met here at Stanford University and went on to found Google nearby. The electronics and technology industries continue to flourish, and leaders such as LinkedIn, Netflix, HP, Google, Symantec, Intuit, VMWare and a host of other leading firms are headquartered in the 18th District.
