Los Angeles County Democratic Party Chair Eric C. Bauman released the following statement on the swearing in of California’s constitutional officers on Monday, January 5th:
“On behalf of the Los Angeles County Democratic Party, I congratulate all of our statewide elected officials as they take their oath to continue working on behalf of the people of California. Their diversity and background of service is a testament to the diversity of the Democratic Party itself, and a reminder that we stand for all Californians.
“I congratulate Governor Jerry Brown, Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom, Secretary of State Alex Padilla, Controller Betty Yee, Treasurer John Chiang, Attorney General Kamala Harris, Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones, and Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson, as well as Board of Equalization Members Jerome Horton and Fiona Ma on all of their success.
“Because these leaders did not run from our shared values, but rather campaigned explicitly on our beliefs and accomplishments, the blue wave kept every statewide office in Democratic hands. The Los Angeles County Democratic Party looks forward to contining our work with these leaders as we seek a better California for all of us.”
