Los Angeles County Democratic Party (LACDP) Chair Eric C. Bauman released the following statement regarding John A. Pérez being re-elected as Speaker of the California Assembly:
“The LA County Democratic Party congratulates John A. Pérez, a long-time LACDP Member, on being re-elected as Speaker. His leadership in the State Assembly has been critical to the progress our state has experienced over these last four years creating jobs, enacting cutting-edge healthcare reforms and promoting equal rights.
“Speaker Pérez was at the forefront of the big blue wave that spread across California in 2012, as Democrats achieved a super-majority in both houses of the legislature for the first time in over a century.
“We look forward to standing shoulder-to-shoulder with the Speaker in the fight to move our state forward.”
