  • John Campbell has a popular name. Campbell is the seventh "John Campbell" to be serve as a member of Congress (although he is the first in 126 years). 
  • NOTABLE NO VOTE (Expanded Local Pension Benefits): Campbell was one of 7 State Assemblymembers (and 14 legislators overall) who voted against AB 616 (2001) by Tom Calderon, which allowed California cities, counties and special districts to offer retirement benefit factors up to 3% at age 60. These higher benefit factors led to severe unfunded pension liabilities in a number of cities a decade later.
  • Campbell is one of ten legislators who served in both houses of the California State Legislature since 1990 but never termed out of either.
