  • Pasquil was born in Sacramento County, although some sources indicate she was "born and raised" in Walnut Grove while others indicate that she was born in the City of Sacramento.
  • Pasquil was the first person to serve as acting Lieutenant Governor who was not the President pro Tem of the California State Senate. It's important to note that currently, only the Governor's office has a line of succession. California Government Code, Section 1775 states that "...after a vacancy has occurred... and prior to the time such vacancy is filled as provided in this section, the chief deputy to the above constitutional officers shall discharge the duties of the office." Previously, the Pro Tem of the State Senate would become acting Lieutenant Governor.
