SACRAMENTO – Senate Republican Leader Patricia Bates of Laguna Niguel, issued the following statement regarding the status of Assembly Republican leadership:
“Being a legislative leader is a challenging job, and I recognize Chad Mayes’ efforts to serve his constituents and his caucus. I appreciate his work to address issues such as poverty that are affecting so many Californians. I wish Chad nothing but the best.
“I congratulate Brian Dahle on his new leadership role. Brian is a strong advocate for his district and I look forward to working with him. Californians deserve a viable alternative to the supermajority party currently in charge, and it is time for California Republicans to move forward.”
