Madireddi is the first person to launch her campaign for the seat, which was previously held by incumbent Bill Clarkson for four terms. 

A resident of San Ramon for the last 22 years, Madireddi has served in several volunteer positions in the town, which is situated in Northern California's East Bay.

She is currently the chair of the Open Space Advisory Committee, which prioritizes land at risk for development in the rapidly-growing town.

She founded a software consulting business, Arvasoft, Inc., with her husband Venki in 1998 and is also active with the local Democratic Party.
