Rex S. Hime, President and CEO of California Business Properties Association has been the primary force in California advocating for Commercial Real Estate in the State Capitol for almost 35 years, is answering the call of public service and will be running in a special election to fill the Senate seat that he lives in.

The Seat will be vacated due to current Senator Ted Gaines winning a seat on the Board of Equalization.  We expect the special election to take place in March of this year — just a few short months away.

Rex has long talked about the importance of people from within the commercial real estate industry stepping-up and getting involved in elective politics.  He is putting those words into action.

Former-Governor Pete Wilson, and the Founder and President of the National Tax Limitation Committee Lew Uhler, are serving as Rex’s Campaign Chairs. Rex has also quickly garnered many endorsements including two former Senators who previously held the seat, Senator Tim Leslie (ret.) and current Congressmember John Doolittle.

Senate District 1 is a massive district stretching all the way from the Eastern part of Sacramento County, to Lake Tahoe, then all the way up to the Oregon border stretching to the middle of the State and back down.  The district is known as one of the most conservative areas of the state.
