Cottie Petrie-Norris is a businesswoman and community leader who ran for State Assembly in 2018 because Orange County residents were getting shortchanged by Sacramento. As our Assemblywoman, she has secured millions of dollars in funding for projects in our district and introduced important legislation to combat sea level rise, improve services for veterans and help small businesses.

Cottie serves as Chair of the Assembly Committee on Utilities and Energy and as Chair of the Select Committee on Green Innovation. She also serves on the Assembly’s committees for Insurance; Banking & Finance; Jobs, Economic Development and the Economy.

Cottie grew up in San Diego County in a hard-working family. Her stepfather was a union machinist and her mom was a homemaker who worked various odd jobs to help make ends meet. Cottie is a proud product of Southern California public schools.

After working her way through Yale University, where she double majored in Economics and English, Cottie had a successful career in finance and technology. She helped build businesses and lead teams at Fortune 500 corporations, small companies and start-ups.

Cottie and her husband, Colin, are the proud parents of two sons, Dylan and Hayden, and a rescue dog named Flounder.
