Speaker Rendon Statement on the Passing of Senator Sharon Runner

SACRAMENTO—Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon (D-Paramount) released the following statement regarding the passing of Senator Sharon Runner:

“Throughout her service in the Assembly and State Senate, Sharon Runner worked tirelessly on behalf of her constituents and all of California's children. Senator Runner also showed great leadership in the cause of increasing organ donation, and it would be a great tribute to her memory for more Californians to sign up to be part of this vital program. On behalf of my colleagues in the Assembly we join Senator Runner’s family and her countless friends in mourning her passing. ”
