On KXJZ’s Insight, the senator says he’ll do everything he can to help with local priorities. 

“The art here is to balance the two and to do so in a fair away. But I think members expect that I’m not going to turn my back on my own community. I want to see the riverfront develop, I want to see continued downtown development, I want to continue to help the cities in the county portion of my district and I think I can do both.” 

It’s been some 125 years since the top job in the State Senate was held by a Sacramento legislator.

Earlier this week, Steinberg replaced Oakland Democrat Don Perata as one of the two most powerful lawmakers in the state.
