Walter "Wally" William Herger, M.C. (1945-) is the current US Representative for California's Second Congressional District. He is Republican with a solidly conservative voting record.[1]

Early Life

Herger was born May 20, 1945 in Yuba City, California and grew up on a cattle ranch. He graduated from East Nicolaus High School and, following his parents, became a rancher.

Political Career

The Congressman started his political career by being elected to the East Nicolaus School Board in 1976. He left the School Board in 1980, when he ran for and won election to the California State Assembly. Following the retirement of then Congressman Eugene Chappie, he ran in the 1986 election for the vacated Congressional seat.
