Shannon Lee Grove
Shannon Lee Smith
Born: March 18, 1965 in Bakersfield, CA
Married: Rick Grove (m. 2007)
Children: Taryn, Kristin, Payden, Ricki and Kylie
Military Service: ARMY

2012: Proponent, "Citizen Legislature Now Initiative" [Initiative 1566] (Failed to Qualify)

  • According to our research, Grove is the first female California state legislator to have served in the military. Another, Lucy Killea, was not actually in the military but served as a civilian employee of the Army in a stateside Military Intelligence unit during World War II. 
  • OPEN GOVERNMENT: In August 2011, Grove was one of the first three legislators to release their office budgets to the public. Freshman Republicans Tim Donnelly, Grove, and Kristin Olsen released up-to-date reports of their expenditures after Rules Committee chair Nancy Skinner declined to release the current reports, citing the Legislative Open Records Act (LORA).
