Democratic Assemblyman Tom Torlakson of Antioch has made public via his Facebook page his engagement to Mae Cendaña, a member of the Ambrose Park and Recreation District in Bay Point.
For those who may not have known, Torlakson and his wife, Dianna, divorced last year after a more than three decades of marriage.
It must be the season for weddings.
Rep. Ellen Tauscher, D-Alamo, announced her engagement this week on this blog to retired airline pilot and widower Jim James Cieslak.
Third on the pending nuptuals list is California GOP Vice Chairman Tom Del Beccaro of Lafayette. He is engaged to Ashli Meske of Santa Barbara. The pair met in 2007 at a Republican fundraiser in Los Angeles and will wed on Dec. 19, 2009.
“You don’t know in life if you will meet someone you are compatible with,” said Del Beccaro, who has been a single dad for 13 years. Like him, Ashli loves politics, history, writing and is a conservative, he says.
Most important, his teen-aged daughter, Julianna, approves.
“Julianna loves Ashli to death,” Del Beccaro said. “It’s a great thing.”
