Quentin Kopp, Independent, served in the California State Senate from 1986 until 1998. In a 1986 special election, he was elected to fill the seat vacated by John Foran after Foran's resignation. Kopp was the first non-incumbent Independent elected to the Senate since 1878. He represented the 8th Senatorial District (South San Francisco, Daly City, Millbrae, Hillsborough, Pacifica, Moss Beach and Burlingame), and after redistricting in 1991, his 8th Senatorial District grew to include San Francisco's Sunset and Richmond areas, as well as the City of San Mateo, the Farallon Islands, and part of Foster City. Kopp served in this position until reaching senate term limitations in 1998.
