Capitol Alert

The latest on California politics and government

Former Republican Rep. Charles Gubser and Assemblyman Gib Marguth both passed away late last week.

Gubser, 95, served one term in the state Assembly in the early 1950s. The Gilroy native went on to represent a Santa Clara County congressional seat for nearly two decades, resigning in 1974 from what was then the 10th Congressional District. He died Saturday in Fresno.

Marguth represented a Livermore Assembly district for one term in the early 1980s before being appointed deputy superintendent of public instruction. He died last Friday at age 77. He had fought leukemia and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma for nearly a decade, according to a Contra Costa Times obituary.
