Jerry Brown: 34th and 39th governor of California
Edmund Gerald Brown Jr. is an American politician who served as the 34th and 39th governor of California from 1975 to 1983 and from 2011 to 2019. In the early 1970s, Brown was elected California secretary of state, and decades later served as mayor of Oakland, California from 1999 to 2007, and California attorney general from 2007 to 2011. A member of the Democratic Party, Brown was both the oldest and sixth-youngest governor of California as a consequence of the 28-year gap between his second and third terms. Upon completing his fourth term in office, Brown became the third longest-serving governor in United States history, serving 16 years and 7 days in office.
