Long active in community affairs, Lou Correa’s passions include providing healthcare for children and mental healthcare services, and autism services for our communities, as well as ensuring the affordability of higher education for all California students.

He holds degrees in Economics from California State University, Fullerton, and a Juris Doctor (JD) and Masters in Business Administration (MBA) from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA).

During his tenure in the California State Senate Lou served Orange County by supporting public safety, health, fitness and safety for children, mental healthcare services, as well as ensuring the affordability of higher education and taxpayer equity for all of our county residents. Correa instituted programs such as Operation Kid Prints, that reached out to local schools to provide free finger printing and child safety packet information in case of an emergency. To date, the program has fingerprinted over 50,000 Orange County children. His Young Senators Program brought together teenagers to learn more about the California State Legislative process, the importance of community service, and leadership.
