SACRAMENTO: Senate Minority Leader Bob Huff (R-Diamond Bar) issued the following statement today following the passing of Senator Richard Mountjoy.
“I’ve known Dick for more than 20-years and news of his death came as a surprise,” said Senator Huff. “It’s been an honor to serve in the same Senate seat and much of the same Senate District that he served in for six years. Although he’s been gone from state circles for a while, his memory has not faded. He was a conservative icon for both the San Gabriel Valley and all of California. Senator Mountjoy served the Republican Party well and his contributions to the State of California will not be forgotten.”
