Hi, I'm Carmenita Helligar and I am running for California  State Assembly District 44 representing the communities of North Glendale, Montrose, La Crescenta, Sunland-Tujunga, Shadow Hills, North Hollywood, Burbank, Toluca Lake, Studio City, Sherman Oaks, and Valley Village. My strength, experience and independence give me the ability to truly represent the range of your needs in our district. 

Over a decade ago, I received a devastating diagnosis of a terminal illness with a mere six months to live. Today, I am incredibly grateful to be a wife, a mother of three, and actively involved in raising my niece. It brings me immense pride to share that all of them have had the privilege of attending public schools. In 2022, I was honored to be recognized as Congressman Adam Schiff's Woman of the Year, and in 2023, I received the esteemed title of Distinguished Woman from Senator Portantino. As the Founder/CEO of Local As Can Bee (LACB), an E-Commerce marketplace tailored to support small business owners, I am dedicated to fostering their success. Additionally, I am deeply committed to volunteering within my community of Burbank, California.


Currently, I hold the position of Vice-Chair on the Library Board and proudly serve as a member of the Burbank Chamber of Commerce Board. Furthermore, I have actively participated in the Diversity Equity Inclusion (DEI) Committee of the Burbank Unified School District. Notably, I am one of the founders of The Destiny Education Project (DEP), an organization led by BIPOC individuals. Lastly, I take immense pride in being a member of the Black Women's Democratic Club.
