|California State Assembly District 44|
MacEnery has expressed support for the Our Children, Our Future initiative. She also wants to focus transportation dollars on mass transit and buses rather than highways.
MacEnery has criticized incumbent Jeff Gorell (R) for his absence from the legislature while serving in the Navy. Gorell is a reservist who was called up around the time of his election. He continued to hold his seat in the legislature even though he was in Afghanistan; fourteen bills were introduced in his name when he was on his year-long tour of duty.
Of Gorell's decision to stay in office, MacEnery was quoted as saying:
"I’m tired of people of (this district) and East Ventura County not being represented by either party. Jeff Gorell is a decent, honorable, ethical person. He was called to Afghanistan and had a lot more things on his mind. The (issue) is not why he vacated office, it’s that he did vacate office. Proper procedure wasn’t followed. (The 37th District) was left without representation. To me, this is a violation of the oath of office."
MacEnery ran in the 2012 election for California State Assembly District 44. She advanced past the blanket primary on June 5, 2012, defeating Thomas Mullens (D). MacEnery was defeated by incumbent Jeff Gorell (R) in the general election on November 6, 2012.
