About the District

Campaign Website

About Andrew:

Andrew Grant is a business leader and former intelligence officer, who served in combat as a Marine, a senior official in the U.S. State Department, and for the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.  As CEO of the Northern California World Trade Center, he helped regional businesses expand their international trade opportunities, creating more good-paying jobs for Californians. His experience and understanding of the challenges facing us at home and abroad makes him the right person to fight for us in Congress.

Born and raised in California’s East Bay, Andrew finished high school and accepted an appointment at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland.  Upon graduation, he was commissioned as a Marine, serving in a variety of roles, as an intelligence officer and reconnaissance commander – directing Marines, SEALs, and Scout Snipers – as a Navy Diver, and leading counterdrug operations with Marine and law enforcement units in Southern California.  Andrew has worked with our South Korean allies against North Korea and with Aussies controlling violence in Indonesia. Following tours in the Pacific, Andrew was reassigned to the Pentagon to serve on the staff of the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. From there, Andrew led national intelligence teams in multiple combat operations in the Middle East and across Europe.  He served in combat protecting Albanian citizens in Kosovo and while fighting alongside Special Forces units against Al Qaeda in Afghanistan. Andrew finished his uniformed service with the Defense Intelligence Agency’s North Korea analysis group.

As CEO of the Northern California World Trade Center (WTC), Andrew helped regional businesses open up trading opportunities to export California goods around the world, growing our economy and creating more jobs.  He knows what it it’s like to take risks and build a business – he and his wife bought and successfully operated a small business, and Andrew worked on the executive team at the regional food retailer, Raley’s. As a crisis management expert, he played a leadership role in dealing with cyber security events, earthquakes, and labor strikes.  

After graduating from the Naval Academy, Andrew earned graduate degrees at the American Military University and the National Defense Intelligence College.  He earned his MBA from Sacramento State University and completed Harvard University’s National Preparedness Leadership Initiative. Andrew is active in the community as a member of the Sacramento County Parks and Recreation Commission, the Folsom-Cordova Unified School District Measure G Citizen’s Oversight Committee, an Adjunct Professor at Los Rios Community College, and an elected member of the Sacramento County Republican Party Central Committee. He and his wife, Mary Ellen, live in Folsom with their three children.
